The new MacBook Air has a Thunderbolt port. Apple introduced this form factor with the Late 2008 model (then called MiniDisplay Port. I suspect your MacBook had a Mini-DVI port. So you'll need to purchase an adapter for this computer as well as any additional cabling.
Don't pay any mind to the fact that it says MiniDisplay Port and not Thunderbolt, it's backwards compatible.
