Alitalia was founded in 1999 and has its headquarters and main hub in Rome, situated in Flumicino, and at the Leonardo da Vinci-Flumicino Airport respectively. It is Italy's national airline and flag carrier. Alitalia has numerous codeshare agreements with other airlines such as Air France, China Eastern Airlines, Etihad Airways, Air Berlin, Qantas and Aeroflot.

In 2015, Etihad Airways took over a large stake of Alitalia.

The company has a fleet of more than 100 aircraft that fly to over 100 destinations around the world. Several Alitalia flights travel to French destinations including Nice, Paris and Montpellier. The airline also flies to a number of domestic Italian destinations such as Florence, Naples, Rome and Verona.
