HistoryEdit

Itapemirim Transportes Aéreos (ITA) was founded in 1990 as an air-cargo division of Viação Itapemirim, one of the largest bus companies for passengers and cargo in Brazil. Flights started in January 1991 and operated in intermodal fashion, integrating air and land (buses and trucks) transportation.[1]

In 1996 a division for regional passenger flights was created and its flights started in 1997. However, in 1998 it was sold to TAM Linhas Aéreas.

In 1999 all its cargo aircraft were sold and in 2000 the airline permanently ceased its activities.
