ITA Airways at "Fitur 2023"
From the 18th to the 22nd of January in Madrid
ITA Airways participates in "Fitur 2023", the International Tourism Fair takes place from the 18th to the 22nd of January in Madrid.
One of the main themes of its attendance at the show and a pillar of its strategy is the commitment to sustainability: the Company aims to become the greenest air carrier in Europe by 2026, courtesy of a modern fleet with state-of-the-art technology. ITA Airways is committed to a CO2 emissions reduction plan, including the renewal of its fleet, which will feature 80% new generation aircraft by 2026, with the consequent downscaling of 1.3 million tons of CO2 emissions. The recent introduction of the A-220/300 and A-350/900 represents a further step towards this goal.
In terms of commercial performance, the carrier closed 2022 with important results: more than 10 million passengers were carried, and the airline has consistently earned top rankings globally, for both Regularity and Punctuality, recording 99% of its entire operation completed in regularity and more than 82% of its flights landing on time, with peaks of 87% in December.
In the local market, the airline currently operates 56 weekly frequencies between Spain and Italy thanks to daily flights from Barcelona and Madrid airports to its Rome-Fiumicino hub, which will increase to 84 with three daily frequencies from each Spanish city starting in June, and connections to the Company’s entire network of destinations in the domestic market as well as in the rest of the world, including South America with Brazil and Argentina. In summer, the carrier will also offer seasonal connections to the Balearic Islands (Ibiza, Majorca, and Menorca), and other Mediterranean destinations.
At the core is the expansion of its intercontinental network, which operates 51 destinations in the current Winter season, including 9 intercontinental routes. Among the long-haul flights, are the new connections from Rome-Fiumicino to San Francisco and Washington, which will be operational in the Summer season, as well as the flights to Rio de Janeiro that will open in November 2023. These new destinations join the flights launched in 2022 to Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Tokyo-Haneda, New Delhi and Malé (Maldives) and those offered in the United States, including New York, Boston, Miami, and Los Angeles. In addition, with the entry of the new A-321Neo in the fleet, the carrier plans to open new destinations to the Middle East: Riyadh, Jeddah and Kuwait City.
