The entire brand and activity of the new Air Italy came into effect on March 1, 2018. The Codes Meridiana IATA, ICAO and AOC have been merged into the new Airline. The airline`s website has been revived with re-branding. The planes transferred by Meridiana still used Meridiana paint with Air Italy titles. The meridiana codeshare and slots agreements have been transferred to the new Air Italy brand. Interlining, also known as interline ticketing and interline booking, is a voluntary commercial agreement between individual airlines to process passengers traveling on routes requiring multiple flights with multiple airlines.  Such agreements allow passengers to switch from one airline flight to another without having to pick up their luggage or check it in again. Airlines can also promise a free rebooking if the route is interrupted due to a delay. Until now, only large network airlines, such as United Airlines and Lufthansa, had electronic line-spacing agreements on tickets, but IATA`s mandate to eliminate paper tickets at the end of 2007 changed this situation by forcing smaller airlines to introduce electronic tickets.
On April 22, 2018, Air Italy became the first Italian customer of the Boeing 737 MAX 8. The first aircraft was fully painted and presented to the public on Air Italy`s social networking sites.  The airline`s first Boeing 737 MAX 8 was delivered on May 11, 2018 at a handover ceremony at Boeing`s Everett Delivery Center in Seattle with Boeing executives.  The airline celebrated the delivery of the first Boeing 737 MAX 8 on May 14, after the plane was handed over to Air Italy in Seattle. The airline held a special press conference in a hangar located on its Milan-Malpensa platform. The airline also introduced its new uniforms.  Finnair`s current special revitalizations are Marimekko “Kivet”, Marimekko 50th Anniversary “Unikko”, Oneworld paintings and “Pure” Christmas paintings. Among the latest Finnair special paintings are “Marimekko Unikko”, “Mumins”, “Santa Claus”, retro paintings from the 1950s and Angry Birds. For membership types that use a given renewal date instead of an anniversary date, you can pay or adjust the membership fee pro-rata if members join in the middle of the year, so the member only pays for part of the year.
With the Prorate Cutoff Day parameter, you can configure the cutoff tag for proportional contributions. The default value is 15. If you have set up your subscriptions to be calculated each month using the cutoff day, the membership for the entire month will be charged if a new membership is added before this cut-off. If a new membership is added after this cut-off, no fee will be charged to the new member. Interline agreements differ from codeshare agreements in that codeshare agreements typically refer to the numbering of a flight with the airline code (abbreviation), although the flight is operated by another airline. However, codeshare relationships may affect whether an interline ticket (or e-ticket) can be issued, as both the codeshare airline and the codeshare operator must have interline agreements with all other airlines on the route in order for a single ticket to be issued. On 1 December 2011, Finnair handed over its baggage and field services to Swissport International in accordance with a five-year agreement signed on 7 November 2011.  The Air Italy logo has been designed in chestnut and mint green colours.
