Aeroitalia will be a low-cask carrier says president Germán Efromovich and, starting on 9 July, Forlì’s Luigi Ridolfi airport will be the hub for Italy’s newest airline.

German Efromovich aeroitalia

Speaking at a press conference at the Grand Hotel in Castrocaro, shareholder and non-executive president Efromovich, former owner of the Colombian company Avianca (South America's second largest airline, ed.) said he was “pleased to invest in this ambitious project for which we have created a network to meet the needs of a dynamic territory such as the Forlì area and the Romagna’s Adriatic Riviera. Aeroitalia's model is not low cost, neither is it high cost. I define it as a low cask (cost per available seat kilometre, ed.) which means with a very high cost efficiency at more than competitive prices, while strictly adhering to the highest standards of safety, comfort and service." 

“An aggressive pricing policy with strong customer focus”

Aeroitalia’s managing director Gaetano Intrieri Forlì's noted that the choice of Forl’ “is a good opportunity even if we are in a very competitive and challenging context, between Rimini and Bologna airports. But we will offer a different kind service to that of our competitors, through an aggressive pricing policy with strong customer focus.” 

23-kilos and cabin luggage included in all fares

Aeroitalia’s fares start at €29 one way and are already on sale online. Unlike the vast majority of carriers operating short and medium-haul flights, a 23-kilo hold luggage and an eight-kilo cabin luggage are always included in the fares, even in the basic class. 

Ten destinations in Italy, Malta and Greece

Initially Aeroitalia will operate from Forlì on eight destinations in Italy: Alghero, Brindisi, Catania, Lamezia, Lampedusa, Olbia and Trapani, with two to three flights a week and four on Naples, and with two international destinations, Malta and Zante. Operating with a 189-seat Boeing 737-800, by the end of the summer there will be three Boeings in the fleet and the aim is to reach 10 aircraft in the short term. Initially it was planned to introduce frequencies to North and South America as early as 2023, but Intrieri confirmed that given the sluggish recovery of the long-haul sector, Aeroitalia's transatlantic flights will probably not start before 2024-2025.
