Alitalia adds Cyprus to its international network

Published on : Tuesday, May 10, 2016

alitaliaThe distance between Italy and Cyprus will soon seem a little shorter, thanks to the new direct flights linking Rome and Larnaca from 8 June. The new service represents an important launch pad for the further development of trade and tourism. Italy is one of Cyprus’s main trading partners, and according to figures issued by the Italian Statistics Institute Istat, trade between the two countries, encouraged by common interests in the Mediterranean, continued to grow in 2015, with Italian exports standing at €263 million and imports at €32 million.

 

There will be two Rome-Larnaca flights a week, scheduled to ensure convenient connections at Alitalia’s Fiumicino hub to 89 destinations in Italy and Europe, the Middle and Far East, North Africa, Asia and the Americas, including Santiago, Mexico City (from 16 June) and Beijing (from 18 July). Passengers will also be able to take advantage of the new Transit Team, which will provide assistance to accompany them quickly to the departure gate for their connecting flight.

 

Flights to Larnaca will depart from Rome Fiumicino every Wednesday and Saturday at 10:35 pm, arriving at 2:40 am (local time) the following day, while Alitalia aircraft will take off from Larnaca on Thursdays and Sundays at 4.50 am (local time), arriving in Rome at 7.15 am. The service will be operated with Airbus A320 aircraft featuring two classes of service, Business and Economy. Alitalia’s MilleMiglia loyalty programme members will be able to earn and redeem miles on these new flights.
