Italy’s flag carrier ITA Airways unveiled its 2023-2024 winter season at the recent It in Rimini during a press conference presented by Andrea Benassi, general manager, and Emiliana Limosani, CCO ITA Airways and CEO Volare, the airline’s loyalty program.

ITA Airways’ winter season will feature 52 destinations, including 17 domestic, 23 international, and 12 intercontinental. Two new intercontinental routes, Rio de Janeiro and Malé, capital of the Maldives, will be added to the flights already operated to New York, Boston, Miami, Los Angeles, Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires, Tokyo, and New Delhi.

“We are very proud of the excellent commercial results achieved this year, which surpassed our forecasts. These were achieved thanks to the constant work carried out and the support of the trade segment, which were crucial elements for us since the start of our operations,” said Emiliana Limosani. “From January 2023 to date, we have carried 11 million passengers, 55 percent more versus the same period in 2022, with an average load factor of 80 percent, 7.5 percentage points higher versus the same time frame in 2022, with an increase in passenger revenue of 83 percent compared to the first nine months of last year. We are now looking confidently to the future, with a focus on intercontinental development. Our next step will be the opening of the new Rome Fiumicino—Rio de Janeiro nonstop flight.”
