Alitalia will grow its international route network in October and strengthen its Spanish presence with a new twice-weekly direct service between Rome and Tenerife. The service, which starts on 30 October, will provide an excellent opportunity for Italians to enjoy winter sun as the Canary Islands enjoy a mild year-round climate.
New Rome-Tenerife flights will be operated twice a week, with schedules designed to allow Alitalia passengers departing from various Italian and international cities to take advantage of connections at Rome Fiumicino airport, Alitalia’s hub, on their way to the Canaries.
Passengers will also be able to take advantage of a new Transit Team, designed to provide assistance to accompany them swiftly to the departure gate for their connecting flight.
Flights from Rome Fiumicino to Tenerife North airport will depart every Saturday and Sunday at 09.30 am, arriving at 1.15 pm local time. The return flight from Tenerife will take off at 2.05 pm local time, arriving in Rome at 7.30 pm. The service will be operated with Airbus A320 aircraft with two classes of service, business and economy. Alitalia’s MilleMiglia members will be able to earn and redeem miles on the new flights.
Tickets can be purchased online at alitalia.com, by calling the Customer Centre on 89.20.10 (+39.06.65 649 from overseas), in travel agencies and at airport ticket offices.
Alitalia currently flies to eight Spanish destinations; Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Malaga, Bilbao and, during the summer period, Palma de Mallorca, Ibiza and Minorca.
