Air One has received approval from the Italian transport ministry to take over the routes and aircraft of defunct Italian airline Noman (Flight International, 22-28 January). The agreement will not involve the outright purchase of Noman, but rather the acquisition, through a three-year lease, of the airline's scheduled arm. Air One will also lease the airline's two McDonnell Douglas DC-9-15s, its engineering division based at Rome-Ciampino Airport, and will take on the carrier's 76 employees.
