Latest News And Updates on ITA Airways

In late 2021 Alitalia, the historical Italian flag carrier, ceased operations only to give way to a new company that started operations the very next day. The new airline is ITA Airways. Where ITA stands for Italia Trasporto Aereo, or translated into English: Italy Air Transport.

ITA Airways inherited part of the old airline’s ground staff, cabin and flight crew along with approximately 60 planes. However there is a lot going on in terms of fleet. Many of those initial 60 aircraft are being replaced with more fuel efficient and modern jets. Also in coming months and years the fleet is set to be further expanded enabling ITA Airways to open new routes and strengthen its position in key markets such as the US, India and the far east.
