After 70 years, Alitalia could leave Milan Malpensa Airport
Italy's national carrier, Alitalia, could leave Milan Malpensa Airport on October 1, according to the Italian news agency ANSA.
It would be the first time since the inauguration of the airport in 1948 when Alitalia will not operate flights from Malpensa, adds ANSA. The news has not yet been officially confirmed by Alitalia, according to the Italian newspaper The Newspaper.
Currently, Alitalia only operates flights to Rome Fiumicino, which will be suspended on September 30. Nor will they be redirected to the other airports around the metropolis of Milan.
On March 9, Alitalia stopped all domestic and international flights from Milan Malpensa Airport, with the blockade due to the new coronavirus. In April, Alitalia resumed operations in a restricted form. However, Alitalia has not re-established long-haul flights from Malpensa to New York and Tokyo.
On this occasion we remind you that Wizz Air has opened its Milan Malpensa base and easyJet has announced the expansion of Milan Malpensa's operations, including direct flights Milan - Bucharest from March 2021.
