ITA Airways confirms its commitments to growth for 2023

Entry of 39 new Airbus aircraft into the fleet and expansion of the intercontinental and international network.

ITA Airways has signed all the planned commitments for the increase of its fleet in 2023: 39 new generation aircraft will join the fleet next year, including 9 wide-body (A330-900) and 30 narrow-body aircraft, while at the same time, the previous generation aircraft will be phased out.

Compared to 2022, the development of the fleet will determine a 73% capacity increase in terms of seats offered per km (Available Seat Kilometre - ASK) on the entire network. An increase mainly driven by capacity on long-haul routes, which will grow by 107%.

In fact, new intercontinental destinations are expected to open in 2023, with direct flights operated from Rome Fiumicino to San Francisco and Washington in the United States starting from the summer season, and to Rio de Janeiro in South America from November, besides the confirmation of all long-haul connections launched in 2022.

With the entry in fleet of the A321Neo aircraft, ITA Airways will also plan the opening of new destinations in the Middle East: Riyadh, Jeddah and Kuwait City, expanding its network and strengthening its connectivity through its Rome Fiumicino Hub. The increase in the number of destinations in ITA Airways network demonstrates the Company's commitment to becoming the reference operator for the mobility of Italians, through the achievement of two fundamental objectives: the satisfaction of all customers’ needs - always at the core of the Company's business - and the growing increase in profitability.
