TravTalk - India - - AVIATION -

Al­i­talia is all set to re­turn to In­dia after it stopped op­er­at­ing into the coun­try in 2008. The Ital­ian air­line will start a new di­rect flight be­tween Delhi and Rome from Oc­to­ber 30, 2017. The new daily New Del­hiRome ser­vice will op­er­ate for the whole win­ter sea­son un­til March 24, 2018. The new con­nec­tion was launched to meet the in­creas­ing de­mand for flights be­tween the two coun­tries. Italy, is the sec­ond Euro­pean coun­try, after Great Bri­tain, for ar­rivals from In­dia. The new con­nec­tion would be Al­i­talia’s sec­ond new in­ter­con­ti­nen­tal des­ti­na­tion of 2017, after Male, Mal­dives (from Oc­to­ber 31), and the ex­ten­sion of di­rect flights to Los An­ge­les, USA, for the up­com­ing win­ter sea­son.

The flight will be on Air­bus A330, which is equipped with ex­clu­sive Made in Italy ameni­ties. Busi­ness Class guests can re­lax in lux­u­ri­ous Ital­ian brand Poltrona Frau leather seats that fully re­cline to a com­fort­able flatbed po­si­tion, and en­joy award-win­ning on­board din­ing featuring the best of Ital­ian re­gional food and wine. All classes fea­ture newly ren­o­vated cab­ins and in­clude Wi-Fi con­nec­tiv­ity for phone calls, in­ter­net and e-mail.

Pas­sen­gers ar­riv­ing at Rome Fi­u­mi­cino air­port from New Delhi will get easy con­nec­tions to 39 cities in Italy, Europe, North Africa and the Amer­i­cas served by Al­i­talia in­clud­ing cul­tural cap­i­tals (such as Florence, Pisa, Venice, Paris) and many more (such as four US des­ti­na­tions, New York, Bos­ton, Los An­ge­les and Mi­ami, as well as Ha­vana). De­par­tures from New Delhi op­er­ate ev­ery day at 4.40 am, and ar­rive in Rome at 9.00 am lo­cal time. Guests ar­riv­ing at Rome Fi­u­mi­cino air­port from New Delhi with con­nec­tions to other cities will have a Tran­sit Team to as­sist them and en­sure they reach their next de­par­ture gate on time. De­par­tures from Rome Fi­u­mi­cino op­er­ate ev­ery day at 2.40 pm lo­cal time, and ar­rive in New Delhi at 2.40 am lo­cal time the next day. This sched­ule is ideal for Al­i­talia pas­sen­gers to con­nect to many other cities across In­dia, such as Mumbai, Kolkata, Chen­nai, Jaipur and Ban­ga­lore thanks to special agree­ments be­tween Al­i­talia and Jet Air­ways, as well as with other major In­dian air­lines.
