PRiMA Aero Trasporti Italiani was an Italian airline founded in 2010, headquartered in Marghera, Venice.[1] Its hub was Venice Marco Polo Airport (VCE). Formerly Eagles Airlines, it was the successor of Alpi Eagles, backed by a Sicilian investment company.

The company made its first flight on 24 August 2010 on the Venice – Lamezia Terme route, and subsequently also had flights to Catania, Reggio Calabria and Rome Fiumicino.

On 23 May 2011 a lawsuit against Eagles Airlines' use of the Eagles name was decided in favour of Alpi Eagles, as a result of which Eagles Airlines changed its name effective 27 May to PRiMA Aero Trasporti Italiani.[2][3]

The company terminated operations on 4 November 2011.
