Pierfrancesco Carino, vice president international sales of ITA Airways, speaking at the Wtm, outlined the carrier’s plans for nearby and transcontinental markets. 

New Milan Linate-London City flights

"At Wtm we launched something new specifically for the British market. ITA Airways is launching three three daily flights from Milan Linate to London City with the new Airbus 220-100. This is a highly innovative product, in fact we are the only ones covering this route, and the frequency is designed specifically for London, Italian and international business travel.

4 daily flights connecting South America to Rome

In addition last week we introduced Rio de Janeiro, so we are strengthening our investment in South America where we now fly to São Paulo and Buenos Aires. ITA Airways now has four daily flights connecting South America and Rome. In addition we are focusing on North America, where we operate 122 weekly frequencies on six gateways. And we have announced the opening of the seventh destination with a frequency to Chicago, to be followed in May by Toronto in Canada.”

“Waiting for the green light from the European Commission”

The ITA Airways fleet currently counts 82 aircraft with plans to boost this to 96 planes next year, “with the focus on sustainability. The Lufthansa-ITA Airways agreement?  “At the moment we are waiting for the green light from the European Commission.”
