ITA Airways is continuing its network growth as it expands to India, with plans to serve New Dehli from December.

The new route will start from the 3rd of December 2022, connecting Rome Fiumicino to the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi three times a week.
Planned operations are:
DEPART FCO 14:10 ARRIVE DEL 02:00+1 MONDAYS, WEDNESDAYS AND SATURDAYS DEPART DEL 15:50 ARRIVE FCO 08:10+1 TUESDAYS, THURSDAYS AND SUNDAYS Commences 3rd December from Rome, 4th December from New Dehli. Operates three times a week as above. Booked Equipment: Airbus A330-200
ITA Airways will operate an Airbus A330-200 on this route which operates in a three-class configuration of 20 business class seats, 17 Premium Economy seats and 219 economy cabin seats.
Further expansion ahead
With New Dehli ahead for ITA Airways, it is continuing to build out its network from its Rome Fiumicino hub, with a route starting to Tokyo, as well as Malè, the Maldives in December.
It’s still finding its feet in the market as it attempts to build new traffic flows and attract both passengers and investment. The arrival timing of the New Dehli flight should allow passengers to connect at Rome Fiumicino onto well-timed connections into Europe and North America.
ITA Airways will offer nine long-haul destinations, with its intercontinental network offering Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, New York, Boston, Miami, and Los Angeles.
As the airline continues to grow out of the shadows of its past, as well as trying to attract a new suitor to invest in the airline, the airline isn’t crazy about adding long-haul routes – rather adding them in a measured manner, within the fleet capacity and growth levels.
And with world events as they are, slow and steady growth may hold ITA Airways in good stead.
