ITA Airways

ITA Airways, whose name stands for Italia Trasporto Aereo, has served as Italy's flag carrier for under a year. Following in the footsteps of former national airline Alitalia, ITA is aiming to keep Italy connected without enduring its predecessor's struggles. With an all-Airbus fleet serving short and long-haul routes, it has established several codeshares. (Featured image: Vincenzo Pace - Simple Flying)
