Meridiana fly is a privately-held Italian airline with headquarters in Olbia.
The Company was founded with the name Alisarda on 29 March 1963 by Prince Karīm al-Hussayn Aga Khan, with the aim to promote tourism in Sardinia. Scheduled flights have been offered since 1964.
On 3 May 1991, the name was changed into Meridiana.
At the end of February 2010, a new Company was founded: Meridiana fly, the second carrier in Italy, born from the merger of two air carriers: Eurofly, company specialized in Charter flights and long distance holiday destinations and Meridiana, a carrier boasting an articulated European and national scheduled route network, mostly aimed at connecting the main Italian airports with the two main islands of Sardinia and Sicily.
