Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
TORONTO — Air Italy passengers can now reach Athens via a seamless connection through Milan Malpensa Airport (MXP).
Air Italy’s new Special Prorate Agreement with Aegean Airlines opens up Greece for Air Italy passengers, says the airline.
Air Italy passengers travelling from Toronto as well as the airline’s four U.S. destinations (L.A., San Francisco, Miami and New York) can fly on from Air Italy’s Malpensa hub on flights direct to Athens on Aegean Airlines.
Air Italy launched its six times weekly service from Toronto (YYZ) to Milan (MXP) back in May.
“This partnership between Air Italy and Aegean Airlines offers significant new travel opportunities for the passengers of both carriers, adding a wide range of options and attractive destinations to both airlines,” says Rossen Dimitrov, Air Italy’s Chief Operating Officer.
Air Italy uses long-haul Airbus A330-200 aircraft on its Toronto-Milan route, with Business and Economy Class service.
“Complementing our new product, we have our new dine-on-demand service, meaning our Business Class customers can select from our extensive à la carte menu at any time, and in any order, to create their own unique dining experience,” added Dimitrov.
Air Italy’s customers can also take advantage of the Wi-Fi service and an extensive inflight entertainment service.
