Alitalia will cease all flights from the southern Italian city of Reggio di Calabria in a move that will remove the majority of services from the city’s airport.
Alitalia has confirmed that from 27 March 2017 it cease all flight operations from Reggio Calabria to Rome Fiumicino, Milan Linate and Turin airports.
The airline currently operates 56 flights a week to and from Reggio Calabria airport, 38 with Rome, 14 with Milan Linate and 4 with Turin.
The decision to close the routes follows more than 12 months of negotiations between Alitalia and the local and regional authorities to try and find viable and sustainable ways in which the flights – that in 2016 brought losses equal to six million euro – could become profitable.
Alitalia customers already holding tickets for travels from 27 March should contact Alitalia at the toll free number 800.65.00.55 (within Italy) or +39.06.65649 (from abroad), or their travel agent where they purchased the ticket, to rebook their travels via Catania or Lamezia Terme or ask for a full refund.
