My Way Airlines S.r.l., operated as MyAir.com, was a low-cost airline based in Torri di Quartesolo, Vicenza, Italy.[1] It operated scheduled services linking a dozen Italian cities and international flights to France, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Morocco, Spain, Belgium, and the Netherlands. Its main base was Orio al Serio Airport, Bergamo, near Milan until the Italian Civil Aviation Authority (ENAC) suspended their flights to and from Orio al Serio Airport.[2] On 22 July 2009, ENAC announced a suspension of MyAir's licence effective 00:01 on 24 July.[3]

History[edit]

The airline was established in 2004 and started operations on 17 December 2004 with three Airbus A320-200s wet-leased from other airlines. The following week it received its own air operator certificate and started operations with its own Airbus A320-200. It is backed by former Volare Airlines management.[4] Owners include Triskel SRL (51%) and My Holding (23%) and it has 232 employees (at March 2007).[2]

On 21 July 2009, the Italian Civil Aviation Authority (ENAC) suspended MyAir.com operations from Bergamo-Orio al Serio Airport due to unpaid taxes, duties and tariffs. Flights from Venice Marco Polo Airport[5] and Bari International Airport[6] are also suspended. The main licence covering all flights is being suspended effective 24 July.[6]

On 11 August 2009, Bombardier announced that it has terminated its firm order purchase agreement with MyAir.com of Italy with respect to all remaining undelivered aircraft. On September 3, 2009 it was announced the company management was in talks with four financial backers in order to put the airline company back into business.[7]

Originally, the firm order, announced in September 2006, involved the sale of 19 CRJ900 aircraft to My Way Airlines. In February 2007, Bombardier announced that 15 of the 19 orders for CRJ900 aircraft were converted to CRJ1000 aircraft. Four CRJ900 aircraft had been delivered to the airline.

On 2 February 2010, Vicenza court set company to bankrupt.
