Etihad Regional – operated by Darwin Airline – has announced that it will be offering weekly flights from Lugano to Ibiza and Brindisi in the 2017 summer season.
The news was announced by the company’s CEO, Maurizio Merlo:
“We wanted to offer the local market two new and attractive summer destinations in addition to our two traditional destinations of Cagliari and Olbia, for which our passengers have shown real appreciation over time. In recent years, Ibiza has become an increasingly popular summer-holiday destination for the people of Canton Ticino, which is why we have decided to offer a direct link between Lugano and the Balearic Islands, believing it will be welcomed by all those keen to holiday there. Similarly, our new flight to Brindisi will bring the splendid Salento region closer to all lovers of this magnificent land, which offers far more than just a beach holiday.
This means our passengers will enjoy all the advantages of departing from Lugano Airport in terms of easy access and short boarding and baggage-handling times. We are certain these two new opportunities will be a great success with local travellers.”
The two new connections will operate with 50-seat SAAB 2000 aircraft once a week.
