Alitalia and Rome announce new COVID-19 tested flights from Rome Fiumicino to Tokyo Haneda

Alitalia and Aeroporti di Roma are still at the forefront of protocols for traveling in extreme safety during the pandemic. After the success of Covid tested flights to and from New York, the same travel method will also be introduced for flights to Tokyo, thanks to the resumption of Alitalia’s direct flights from Rome Fiumicino to the capital of Japan, operated by three times a week.
The nonstop Alitalia service between Rome and Tokyo will start at same time with the expected Olympic Games. All passengers traveling on the three weekly flights to and from Tokyo, including the Italian athletes, must present a certificate proving negativity to Covid 19 at boarding. Upon arrival at the airport in Rome, a further antigen test will be performed. The negativity found in this second test will exempt passengers arriving in Rome from Japan from having to observe the fiduciary quarantine period in Italy. A method that has reassured the market, in parallel with the progress of the vaccination campaign in our country. The resumption of Alitalia flights to Japan will also be characterized by the inauguration of services at the most convenient city airport of Tokyo Haneda, only 20 kilometers from the city.
