Sustainability

Ethical fares


Alitalia has signed agreements with some hospitals, representing the excellence in our health-care system, in order to offer discounted rates to patients who want to reach those hospitals for impatient health care on domestic flights.

These hospitals are part of the network:  

  • San Raffaele in Rome (all the hospitals which are part of this Group)
  • I.E.O. Istituto Europeo di Oncologia in Milan
  • Istituto Nazionale Tumori in Milan
  • Gruppo Ospedaliero San Donato in  Milan (all the hospitals which are part of this Group) 
  • Istituto Clinico Humanitas in Milan 
  • Istituto Giannina Gaslini in Genoa  
  • ISMETT Istituto Mediterraneo per i Trapianti e Terapie ad Alta Specializzazione in Palermo   

 
Patients may obtain a 50% reduction on the fare of any Economy class reservation of a domestic round trip ticket. Promotional fares, taxes and flights from Sardinia are exempted. 
The same reduction can  be extended to one accompanying person, provided that they travel together.
No penality will be applied for changes if the hospital has  rescheduled the visit.
In order to  use facilities and buy tickets, patients may refer directly to the dedicated hospital service   

Wildlife


Alitalia, along with Etihad Airways equity partners, has signed the Buckingham Palace Declaration, committing to major steps to fight illegal wildlife trafficking and efforts to help protect many of the world’s iconic  wildlife species. 

United for Wildlife is an unprecedented alliance of conservation organizations and The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry. The initiative aims to address current conservation issues with an initial focus on supporting efforts to prevent the growing trade in illegal wildlife and products around the world. The Transport Taskforce, launched  in December 2014, has identified specific actions that the transport industry can take in supporting the race against extinction.

Alitalia has  already refused to transport hunting trophies on his  planes for some years, but now with the signing of the Buckingham Palace Declaration we have further reinforced our commitment to the protection of species threatened with extinction. Having the Etihad equity partners as signatories ensures a more extensive and impactful result over 348 destinations. The Declaration includes eleven commitments developed to support global efforts to prevent illegal wildlife smuggling, which encourage the transport industry to specifically help shut down the routes exploited by wildlife traffickers. Airlines  will  support in a number of ways including increasing passenger awareness, providing capacity building at airports and working closely to support the efforts of customs and law enforcement authorities.
