HistoryEdit

The "first" Alitalia was founded on September 16, 1946. [7] Its first flight was on May 5, 1947. [8] In 1960, Alitalia started flying jet aircraft. [9] In 1995, Alitalia tried to merge with KLM, but it failed. [10] 1998 was the first profitable year for Alitalia. [11] In 2001, Alitalia joined SkyTeam. The airline lost more than €3.7 billion since 1999 until 2008.[12] On January 12, 2009, the "first" Alitalia shut down. The next day, on January 13, the "second" Alitalia began. [13] In June 2014, Etihad Airways bought 49% of Alitalia. On January 1, 2015, a "third" Alitalia began. This one is 49% owned by Etihad and 51% owned by Italian shareholders. [14]
