Ciao, Meridiana.

As of 19 February, the Italian airline has been renamed Air Italy in a bid to grow its fleet and become the country’s national carrier.

Apart from being bestowed with a brand-new name, the airline has also unveiled a new livery which has adopted the iconic maroon hue closely associated with Qatar’s flag carrier.

This comes as no surprise considering Qatar Airways bought a 49 percent stake in AQA Holding, the new parent of the Sardinia-based carrier.

As shown mocked up on a Boeing 737 Max 8, the aircraft is covered in a maroon hue, with the color featuring heavily within the cabin as well.

Over the next few years, the airline looks set to grow its fleet of aircraft to include 20 737 Max 8s, 20 787s, and five Airbus A330s, with many of these aircraft on lease from Qatar Airways.
