1989 - 1990

^ Comments : From 1980-1986 the airline was known as Cadabo. The airline's home base was Linate (Milan) and Ciampino (Rome). 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. Alinord operated between 1986-1990, mostly business charters and overnight package delivery. 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 May1990 it was all over and Unifly ceased to exist
