Air Italy was established in 2005 mainly through the hard work and commitment of Captain Giuseppe Gentile, who was also the founder of Air Europe. It is a young but solid company that, after its initial activity as medium- and long-haul leisure carrier, has also been operating regular scheduled domestic flights since June 2007.
Thanks to its operating reliability and proven safety standards, Air Italy has fast become one of the foremost suppliers of Italian tour operators as well as the public’s favourite scheduled flight company in the reference markets. The company’s punctuality rate over the last 12 months has fluctuated between 88% in August 2009 and 98% in March 2009.
With careful cost management Air Italy has grown rapidly at an average rate of 100% a year, achieving a turnover for 2008 of €230 million and, even more important, it has done so maintaining an economic and financial stability also with regard to its assets.
