Meridiana Flight Guide
After Alitalia, Meridiana is the second largest carrier in Italy. Unlike Alitalia, the government does not have a stake in Meridiana. Meridiana is mainly concerned with domestic and European flights, although there are also a number of intercontinental destinations that it flies to.
The airline operates out of its main hub on the island of Sardinia, just below France’s Corsica. The main city is called Olbia, and the airport hub is Olbia Costa Smeralda Airport. The airline also has heavy traffic through Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Aiport and five other lesser airports on the mainland.
Why fly Meridiana?
Meridiana is one of the best ways to get to Sardinia and to get from A to B within Italy. They operate 27 places that fly to 49 destinations. As such, for travelers moving through the mainland, when the time comes to fly to Sardinia, Meridiana is usually the only airline with that service from the nearest airport.
They offer a frequent flyer program to its customers. It is called Hi-Fly. One could also enroll as a Fly-Pass Club member. Between these two offerings, clientele aboard Meridiana planes gain miles which define their membership and which can be exchanged for free tickets, upgrades, third-party purchases from places like restaurants and hotels, and more.

On Board Meridiana
Depending on the route and the aircraft type, one may find that the cabin is a single-class configuration. This is the Tourist Class, or Economic Class. All domestic flights are so configured. Economic Class offers in-flight complimentary snacks and drinks. On longer flights, passengers receive complimentary hot meals.
Business Class Flights
Business Class aboard Meridiana flights is called “Privilege Class”. This class is only available on some longer intercontinental flights. The meal is somewhat upgraded from the economic class, and it is served with a selection of wine. All passengers who are flying Privilege Class receive an iPad that comes equipped with movies, games and music. Planes are not otherwise equipped with personal in-flight entertainment options but instead offer pre-programed movies that are shown to the economic class on drop-down television screens.
For those who will be requiring special meals, the service is available if one makes their request known 48 hours in advance of takeoff.
