Aircraft. ITA Airways expands its intercontinental network
Fiumicino-Rio from end October by A-330 with a daily frequency
ITA Airways' intercontinental expansion continues, with new flights from Rome-Fiumicino to Rio de Janeiro now on-sale.
The long-haul expansion is one of the major pillars of its strategy, as it generates profitability but also enhances the short-haul connectivity, thus contributing to double the capacity of the Company’s intercontinental network.
Its new connection will be operated with the A-330, from October 29, 2023 with a daily frequency. Flights from Rio de Janeiro will be operated from October 30, 2023, with daily frequency.
The new connections will allow carrier to further strengthen its expansion in South America, following the flights opening to Buenos Aires and Sao Paulo, which has always been a privileged destination for Italian holidays and the destination with the highest rate of Italian origin population, as well as a strategic market together with the United States for business and cargo traffic.
The new connection joins ITA Airways' flights to New York, operated from both Rome-Fiumicino and Milan-Malpensa airports, and those to Boston, Miami, Los Angeles, Washington, San Francisco, Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires, Tokyo, New Delhi and Malè (Maldives) operated from Rome-Fiumicino earlier this year.
The new connections can be purchased on all ITA Airways sales channels, through its official website, the Company's call centre, travel agencies and airport ticket offices.
