A summer with the wind in its sails for the SNAV shipping group 

By Thursday, 13 October 2022 06:00

The 2022 season certainly put the winds in the sails of SNAV, the private shipping group headed by Neapolitan shipowner Gianluigi Aponte.


"The summer that is drawing to a close has been one of great recovery after two years conditioned by the pandemic and the increase in fuel prices due to the conflict in Ukraine. We have come close to 2019 levels, - comments Giuseppe Langella, managing director of SNAV Spa.  - Our ships have so far recorded excellent load factors, particularly on the routes to Ischia-Casamicciola and Procida as regards the Gulf of Naples, where the connections to Capri have also confirmed their traditional success."

A flourishing partnership with the Croatian Tourist Board

Positive results also for the Aeolian and Pontine Islands, and for sales on crossings to and from Croatia. On the Adriatic line SNAV is reaping the benefits of its sales campaign based on many promotional fares. Then there is the flourishing partnership with the Croatian Tourist Board which promotes the area through media and radio campaigns on the Italian market.

“The desire to travel again has continued to grow”

The sales targets for the SNAV lines range from the holidaymaker and the daily excursionist to the tourist holidaying in a camper for several days or weeks. "In any case, - adds Langella, - the desire to travel again has continued to grow, as has the request for all kinds of services. SNAV has responded to these in the best possible way, even doubling the number of crossings where necessary in certain periods, such as to Croatia for example."  

Incentives and commission schemes for travel agents 

Among the company's strengths are the formulas providing guarantees to passengers, such as Zero Pensieri which allows cancellations for unforeseen complications or personal problems at zero cost up to 48 hours prior to departure. "There are many new features for 2023 - concludes SNAV's CEO. - Some of these will be for travel agents, for whom we have a really interesting programme of incentives and commission schemes. For us the trade is a privileged channel."
