Air Italy has announced two new routes to North America, bringing the airline’s number of North American destinations from four to a total of six.

Starting in May 2019, Air Italy will begin non-stop flights to Chicago and Toronto from its base at Milan Malpensa Airport. The new route to Chicago will be operated three times a week, whereas flights to Canada are scheduled four times a week.

Toronto is an extremely welcome addition to the Air Italy route map and clearly reflects the importance of the North American market to us. There is enormous potential in extending our reach to Canada, thanks to its economic relevance and strong global relations. Air Italy Chief Operating Officer, Rossen Dimitrov

In addition to the existing US routes to Miami and New York, the airline’s current intercontinental network consists of flights to Bangkok, Mumbai and Delhi. Furthermore, services to Los Angeles and San Francisco have been announced earlier this month.

All long-haul services from the airline’s hub at Milan Malpensa Airport are being operated by Airbus A330-200 aircraft, which were previously owned by Qatar Airways. The flag carrier of Qatar holds a 49% stake in Air Italy. Besides the A330s, Boeing 737 (both MAX and NG versions) and Boeing 767-300 airplanes are part of the Italian airline’s fleet.
