In operation since October 15, 2021, the new Italian airline ITA Airways just arrived in Brazil. The inaugural flight took place on June 2 and departed from Guarulhos International Airport to Fiumicino Airport, in Rome.
The company replaces Alitalia and is a company fully controlled by the Italian Ministry of Economy and Finance.
Specifically in Brazil, there will be five weekly flights from Rome to São Paulo, from Monday to Wednesday, and Friday and Saturday. Leaving Guarulhos, flights will be on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. These new connections will be daily starting in August.
But it will not be only São Paulo that will be contemplated. In partnership with Azul Linhas Aéreas, the ITA It will also fly domestic flights: Belém (PA), Cuiabá (MT), Santos Dumont (RJ), Porto Alegre (RS), Recife (PE), Juazeiro do Norte (CE), Confins (MG) and Curitiba (PR).
Thus, it will be possible to reach eight Brazilian destinations connected via Guarulhos.
For this operation, the company chose its flagship aircraft, the new A350-900 with 334 seats, including 33 full-flat seats in Business and 39 seats in Comfort Economy. This plane is built with lighter materials that allow for weight reduction for the benefit of lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, part of the company’s sustainability plan.
The 2022 summer season of ITA Airways includes 63 new destinations, 22 of which are domestic, 34 international and 7 intercontinental.
