However, Alitalia - Linee Aeree Italiane S.p.A. went into liquidation in 2008, due to problems with pilots and crew members and labour difficulties. In 2008, a group of Italian entrepreneurs along with Intesa Sanpaolo, a major Italian bank, founded Compagnia Aerea Italiana with the aim of buying the trademark and some of the assets of the bankrupt Alitalia — Linee Aeree Italiane and to merge these with Air One, another Italian carrier. Only the Alitalia trademark would be kept for the merged company.
