Italian LCC MyAir started operating CRJ900s this summer to complement its existing A320 fleet. We take a closer look at its operations from its second biggest base at Venice.

Volareweb at Milan Linate. Only three years ago Volareweb was Europe’s third largest LCC with 18 aircraft and 71 routes. Then it all went wrong. It relaunched in June 2005 with four aircraft and since then the airline has been in limbo as its future is debated in the courts. Alitalia wanted to buy it but AirOne objected.
