Meridiana : History

Meridiana is a lowcost airline along with SkyEurope, Ryanair, EasyJet, and Vueling. Originally named Alisarda, the airline was founded on 29th March 1963 and funded by prince Karim Aga Khan, with the principal aim of increasing tourism to la Costa Smeralda (the emerald coast) in Sardinia. In 2010 Alisarda joined Eurofly and changed its name to Meridiana. The Meridiana headquarters are based at the Olbia Airport in the north of Sardinia. Meridiana flights jet passengers to around 60 airports in several continents, and the Meridiana route map mainly connects destinations in Europe (especially within Italy) but also New York, Russia, the Middle East (Israel), Africa (Egypt and Madagascar) and Brazil.
