Alitalia to Resume Flights to Spain & New York

Today (May 20), Alitalia stated that it would start to increase flights by about 36% as Italy prepares to welcome tourists back into the country by the first week of June.

Alitalia’s decision to resume certain flights came after the Italian government announced unrestricted travel between European countries would be allowed starting from June 3.

The Italian airline plans to resume flights between Rome and New York as well as flights between Rome and Spain as early as June 2nd. The airline will also restart domestic flights including routes between Milan and Southern Italy.

Depending on how the pandemic plays out in phase 2 in Italy, Alitalia plans to operate at about 40% by July.

Over the past 2 months, Alitalia was operating at about 15% in order to maintain essential services which included flights to other European countries. On these flights, they were only able to fill up half the seats in order to provide distance between travellers.
