Alitalia: Covid-screened flight offer extended

Alitalia extends the Covid-tested flight offer from Rome to Milan, and vice versa, which started in mid-September.

Until 31 October, two Alitalia’s air services departing from Rome Fiumicino and until 6 November two flights departing from Milan Linate - out of the 14 flights operating between the two cities - will continue to carry only passengers who have tested negative for Covid-19, after undergoing the rapid antigen test before boarding or after presenting a certification for a molecular swab (PCR test) or antigen swab performed within 72 hours before the flight departure time.

The flights included in the service are, from Rome to Milan: AZ 2038 at 1:30 pm (operating every day of the week) and AZ 2092 at 5:20 pm (operating from Monday to Friday, from 26 October it will depart at 5:30 pm). From Milan Linate to Rome Fiumicino, the Covid-tested flights are: AZ 2039 at 10 am (operating every day of the week) and AZ 2061 at 5 pm (operating from Monday to Friday).

Tickets for these air services are available on all Alitalia sales channels. The dedicated number +39 06.65859458 is also active for information and for assistance to those travellers, already booked on the Covid-tested flights, who do not want to undergo the preventive tests necessary to board and prefer to be rebooked free of charge to one of the other air services operating between Rome and Milan. For further details on the initiative, customers can also check the dedicated page on Alitalia.com website.

In compliance with the current national and international regulations issued to prevent against contagion, all Alitalia aircraft are sanitized with high-powered sanitizing products every day and, thanks to HEPA filters and vertical circulation, the air on board is not only renewed every three minutes, but it is also 99.7% pure, just like in a sterile medical room. All passengers are also required to complete a self-certification form before boarding, which certifies that they have not had close contact with people diagnosed with Covid-19. In addition, passengers must bring an adequate number of surgical protective masks, to be worn always during their journey, according to the duration of the flight, since it is necessary to replace the mask with a new one every 4 hours.
