Unifly Express

Unifly Express was an Italian airline that operated from 1980 until 1990.

Company History

Unifly began operations as a charter airline in 1980 with mostly business charters and overnight package delivery. In 1984 it entered the scheduled passenger service with Fokker F28 aircraft. In 1985 it formed a cooperations with Alitalia and operated flights on its behalf. Unifly also operated freight flights with Douglas DC-9-15RC aircraft.

In 1989 the name was changed to Unifly Express and with it came the first McDonnell Douglas MD-83. A total of five MD-82s and one MD-83 were operated. In 1990 Unifly Express took over Alinord and with it came a northern Italy route network and more F28s, but shortly afterward Unifly was having financial problems. The MD-80s were returned to the lessors and by May 1990 it was all over and Unifly ceased to exist. [Airlines Remembered by BI Hengi, Publisher Midland Publishing]
