Air Italy marked a first in Italian aviation with the touchdown of its Boeing 737 MAX in the new livery at Milan-Malpensa (MXP) on May 14.

The inaugural aircraft is the first of nearly 50 new aircraft that will be added to the Air Italy fleet by 2022. This is the first of 20 brand new 737 MAX’s that will join the airline over the next three years and will replace existing 737NG’s.

Air Italy will also lease five Airbus A330-200 aircraft this year from Qatar Airways’ fleet, prior to these being further replaced by Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft, commencing in May 2019.
