Air Italy’s first nonstop service from Los Angeles to Milan Malpensa was inaugurated on April 3, taking off from Los Angeles at 6.50 pm, adding a third direct service to North America following last year’s launch of Milan-New York JFK and Milan-Miami.
The new Los Angeles-Milan IG944 service which will operate four times weekly was inaugurated by Air Italy’s Chief Operating Officer, Rossen Dimitrov, who thanked Joe Buscaino, Council Member Los Angeles City, Keith Wilschetz, Deputy Executive Director Los Angeles World Airport, Max Reyes, Office of Los Angeles Mayor Garcetti Infrastructure Manager and Silvia Chiave, General Consul of Italy in Los Angeles and gave a warm send off to the departing passengers and media representatives.
In celebration of this new service, there was a traditional cake and ribbon cutting ceremony as the departure of the A330 aircraft was marked with a celebratory water cannon.
Air Italy’s next and fourth US service to be inaugurated will be the four-weekly services between San Francisco and Milan, which will commence on April 10th with flights each Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Tuesday.
The new flights from Los Angeles are four times weekly (Wednesday, Friday, Sunday, Monday) and are operated by Air Italy’s new Airbus A330-200 offering 24 seats in Business and 228 in Economy class.
All international flights to and from Milan Malpensa, including the new LAX service, can connect with domestic flights served by Air Italy between Milan and central and southern Italy, namely Rome, Naples, Palermo, Catania, Lamezia Terme, Cagliari, and Olbia.
