Italian flag-carrier ITA Airways is promoting its flight schedule for summer 2023 at the Borsa Internazionale del Turismo (BIT) exhibition taking place through February 14 in Milan.
The airline’s program for summer 2023 includes flights to 68 destinations out of which 22 are domestic, 36 are international and 10 are intercontinental.
According to Emiliana Limosani, Chief Commercial Officer ITA Airways and CEO Volare, 2023 is an year of major investments for the airline.
This year ITA Airways will be doubling its long-haul offer thanks to the opening of new routes to the United States, with flights from Rome Fiumicino to Washington and San Francisco in the upcoming summer season; and to South America, with the connection from Rome Fiumicino to Rio de Janeiro launching in the winter season, alongside an increase in the offer on all destinations already operating.
ITA Airways’ two new intercontinental destinations will be operated with the Airbus A330 (route to Washington) and with the Airbus A350, the company’s flagship (route to San Francisco).
“We are delighted to announce these new routes as well as our new seasonal and year-round medium haul flights here at BIT, a key event for all tourism operators,” Limosani said.
