B2B meetings between US and Sicilian tour operators

The Neos network to North America includes three weekly flights on the New York-Milan Malpensa route and a Toronto-Milan Malpensa flight that doubles its frequency during the summer season. “We are actively promoting Sicily through an advertising campaign with dedicated space on the aircraft and with B2B meetings between US and Sicilian tour operators,” added the general manager of the tourism department, Maria Concetta Antinoro. -We are of course working to significantly implement tourist flows to our island; this is a priority for our department.”

A possibility of extending the flights into the winter months

“The route to New York operated by Neos is a great opportunity for Sicilians,- commented Vito Riggio, CEO of Gesap, the management company of Palermo's Falcone Borsellino International Airport. ”Of course we are aiming at the presence of Americans in the Palermo area, which is rich in traditions and our culture which nurtures experiential tourism. The mere fact that the increase in frequencies for the 2025 summer season is being announced today gives us high hopes for the success of the flights, and the possibility that they will also be extended into the winter months.”
