Alitalia adds more flights between London and Milan introducing a fifth daily service between London City Airport and Milan Linate, central city airport. With the new flight, Londoners will be able to reach the heart of Milan in less than two hours and make the most of their day in Milan, thanks to the earliest departure from London City at 6.35 am, with arrival in Milan at 9.30 am local time, and the last return from Milan at 8.30 pm local time, landing at London City at 9.25 pm.
All Alitalia flights to and from London City Airport are operated by Embraer E-190, which is one of the few planes allowed to land at London City. On these aircraft, seating is arranged in rows of two, thus eliminating the central seat and offering maximum comfort to all passengers. Two travel classes are available, Business and Economy.
Milan Linate airport is situated at approximately 8km from the centre of the city, and can be reached by bus or taxi. The airport mainly attracts a business clientele and, for this reason, offers infrastructures and areas dedicated to business and shopping.
In 2015, Alitalia carried over 163 thousand passengers between London City and Milan Linate. Alitalia also offers two daily flights between London Heathrow and Milan Linate, in addition to numerous connections with the hub of Rome Fiumicino, from which passengers can continue their journey with Alitalia towards more than 87 destinations in Italy, Europe, the Americas, North Africa, Middle East and Asia, among which the newly announced Santiago de Chile (started on 1 May), Mexico City (from 16 June) and Beijing (from 18 July).
