ITA Airways, Alitalia’s successor, is expected to get its first Airbus A350 widebody in June 2022.
According to Italiavola, ITA Airways’ chief executive Fabio Lazzerini revealed the timeframe for the airline’s first Airbus A350-190 aircraft delivery in an interview with Il Messaggero. The airline’s new widebody, according to Lazzerini, would arrive in time for the inauguration of ITA’s new Rome to Buenos Aires route.
ITA Airways, Italy’s new national airline, began commercial operations on October 15, 2021, replacing the loss-making Alitalia. It has a network of 44 destinations and 59 routes. By 2025, the airline plans to expand to 74 destinations and 89 routes.
ITA Airways currently has a fleet of 52 aircraft, consisting of 27 Airbus A320-200s, 18 Airbus A319s, and seven Airbus A330-200s.
ITA Airways, on the other hand, expects to increase its fleet to 78 aircraft in 2022 and 105 aircraft in 2025.
