ITA Airway’s first flight from New Delhi to Rome Fiumicino departed on December 4, 2022 at 03:50 am local time. The new route marks a step forward in the expansion of the company’s network towards the Asian market.

“We are happy to inaugurate ITA Airways’ Rome Fiumicino-New Delhi connections, the only direct flights between these two capitals,” said Emiliana Limosani, Chief Commercial Officer ITA Airways and CEO, Volare.

“With the opening of this new route for the transport of passengers and cargo between Italy and India, ITA Airways is further contributing to the cultural integration and development of the economic relationship between the two countries, which have developed a solid political and commercial collaboration in recent years, with the presence of more than 600 Italian companies in India and a bilateral interchange that in 2021 reached a record value of more than 10 billion euros. We have thus taken an important step forward in the project of expanding our intercontinental network towards a fascinating destination and a market full of opportunities. In addition, thanks to the flight departing from New Delhi to Rome, our Indian customers will be able to visit not only Italy but also all of Europe, thanks to convenient connections offered from our Rome Fiumicino hub,” concluded the Chief Commercial Officer.

The new route will be operated with an Airbus A330, three times a week, departing from New Delhi, every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at 03:50 am and landing in Rome Fiumicino at 08:10 am. Return flights from Rome Fiumicino will depart every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 2:10 pm and will arrive at New Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport at 02:00 am, local time. With the new intercontinental connection, ITA Airways is further expanding into the Asian market, while it continues to strengthen the ability to attract connecting customers, tapping into the flows between India and North America, Germany, Spain and France.

ITA Airways’ Indian operations will be enhanced by flights operated in interline agreement with Vistara. Thanks to the collaboration with the Indian full-service airline, customers on ITA Airways’ Rome-New Delhi flight will be able to fly on connecting domestic and international flights from Vistara’s hub at Indira Gandhi International Airport. These include Mumbai, Amritsar, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Kochi, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune, Chandigarh and Dabolim in the Indian market and Bangkok, Kathmandu and Dhaka at international level.

To support the new intercontinental flight from New Delhi to Rome and to enhance local awareness of the new Italian flagship carrier, ITA Airways has also launched a multi-channel advertising campaign in India.
