HISTORY: AVIO LINEE ITALIANE (ALI) was an Italian independent airline owned by the Fiat Group, which operated between 1926 and 1952. It was ultimately acquired by Linee Aereee Italiane (LAI). ALI was the country's only pre-World War II airline not to be nationalized by the Italian Government. In 1949, ALI merged with two small post-war Italian independent airlines, Air One and Trans-Adriatica, to form Avio Linee Italiane-Flotte Reunite (LAI-FR). The ALI-FR was liquidated in 1952 and subsequently was acquired by LAI.
