Alitalia will add a new non-stop service between Rome and Havana, from 29 November, and confirmed year-round flights to Santiago, Mexico City and Beijing, which were launched earlier this year.
The Italian airline will grow its fleet with an additional Boeing 777 to support the development of its intercontinental network, bringing the airline’s long-haul fleet to a total of 25.
Alitalia will also improve its Spanish route network with a new twice-weekly service between Rome and Tenerife, starting October 30, that will operate every Saturday and Sunday with an Airbus 320, configured in two classes.
Additionally, the airline will increase the capacity on its service between Rome and Teheran, by replacing the A320 currently operating on the route by an A330 aircraft.
The A330 wide-body plane will provide 55 per cent more passenger seats and 70 tonnes of cargo space a week, in-flight Wi-Fi connectivity service and luxurious Poltrona Frau leather seats that fully recline to a comfortable flatbed, as well as enjoying an award winning onboard fine dining menu which features the best of Italian regional food.
On the domestic network, the airline will bring the north and south of the country even closer together with a daily service between Bologna and Catania and more connections from Milan to Bari, Catania and Pescara. More flights are also scheduled from Rome to Trieste and Catania, and between Naples and Catania.
