ITA Airways will inaugurate a new route from Dubai to Rome Fiumicino on 27 October, operating daily flights.

A year of satisfactory results and revenue growth

“This new route is a further step forward in our airline's growth process,- said chairman Antonino Turicchi. -In the first four months of 2024 we recorded very satisfactory results that went beyond expectations, with more than five million passengers carried, which was +29% over the previous year, generating 38% higher revenues than the same period of 2023. This is thanks to the performance of the intercontinental sector, which posted revenue growth of over 50% compared to the first four months of 2024. Moreover, our average load factor stood at 78% which was 3.6% higher than last year, with peaks of 82% on the intercontinental sector.”

“Things are also looking positive for the summer season, during which we expect to carry more than 25% more passengers than last year. From January to April this year we recorded 99.9% regularity and around 85% on-time arrival at 15 minutes. These results have allowed us to move forward and invest in carving out a leading role for ourselves in air transport also domestically, as a carrier with solid prospects.”
