Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Transport, Infrastructure and Communications identified several variants of air transport that will allow the return of Romanian citizens, non-residents, who are seasonal workers, affected by the drastic restriction of the economic activities in which they were engaged in Italy, as well as of the Romanian citizens who are in Italy in special situations, without real possibilities to continue their presence on the Italian territory, which requires their repatriation in the shortest time.
The details regarding the organization of these charter races will be communicated in due time to the Romanian citizens who meet the criteria mentioned above.
A first race will be organized from Turin on March 21, 2020.
