Livingston S.p.A. was an Italian airline with its head office in Cardano al Campo, Varese, Italy.[1] It operated scheduled and charter services connecting major Italian cities to holiday destinations in the Caribbean, Central America and South America, the Indian Ocean, Africa, the Mediterranean and the Middle East. Its main base was Malpensa International Airport, Milan.[2]

The airline had temporarily suspended operations as of 9 October 2010, finally its air operator's certificate was revoked as of 14 October 2010.[3]

History[edit]

The airline was established on 13 January 2003 and started operations in May 2003. Lauda Air Italy had been established in 1990 and was majority-owned by the Volante company, itself controlled by Niki Lauda, while the remaining shares were with Gruppo Ventaglio. On 31 March 2003, Gruppo Ventaglio purchased Volante's share and integrated Lauda Air Italy with Livingston under the parent company Livingston Aviation Group. It had 144 employees as of March 2007.[2]

On 9 October 2010, Livingston announced that flights were to be temporarily suspended after ENAC (Italian Civil Aviation Authority) suspended its licence. The full effect of the suspension took place from midnight 14 October 2010.[4]
