HistoryEdit

Foundation as Air One CityLinerEdit

Alitalia CityLiner was founded as Air One CityLiner S.p.A. in June 2006, as a subsidiary of Air One, with a brand new fleet of ten Bombardier CRJ-900s.[3] It commenced operations with flights between Trieste and Rome Fiumicino; and Genoa and Naples, on 7 June. In February 2007, it started its first international route, between Turin and Paris-Charles de Gaulle.

On 13 January 2009, Air One and Alitalia merged under the Alitalia brand name. As a result, Air One CityLiner's aircraft began operating on behalf of Alitalia group.
