History

It was formed under the name of Società di Navigazione Aerea Itavia in 1958 and started domestic services a year later using de Havilland Dove and de Havilland DH.114 Heron aircraft. Operations were suspended in 1961, but resumed in 1962,now under the name of Aerolinee Itavia. The Herons had been disposed off and now the Handley Page Dart Herald was being used. Operations ceased again in 1965 and recommenced again in 1969 using Fokker F28 aircraft. In 1971 the Douglas DC-9-15 entered service. Other DC-9s operated were the Douglas DC-9-21, Douglas DC-9-31, Douglas DC-9-33 and Douglas DC-9-51. A total of 14 F28s and 11 DC-9s were used throughout its history.

Itavia operated a domestic network, which was again suspended in late 1980. Eventually, the airline was replaced by Aermediterranea, a subsidiary of Alitalia and ATI, in 1981.
