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 — Global airline services company Anjuna has been appointed as Air Italy’s GSA representative in Canada.
Air Italy launched six weekly flights from Toronto (YYZ) to Milan (MXP) on May 6, with connections to its Italian domestic and international networks. The carrier also currently operates five weekly flights from Miami (MIA), seven weekly flights from New York (JFK), four weekly flights from Los Angeles (LAX) and four weekly flights from San Francisco (SFO).
“We are honored to lead Air Italy’s initiative to grow its footprint in the Canadian aviation markets,” said Mable Tang, Managing Director of Anjuna. “Our partnership will expand Air Italy’s world class global services, provide an enhanced customer experience for all passenger classes, and deepen Air Italy’s presence in the Canadian market.”
The exclusive agreement with Anjuna will promote Air Italy’s direct flight with competitive fares from Toronto. All flights will be operated with its latest long-haul Airbus A330-200, two class configuration aircraft which includes lay flat Business Class seating.
Says Air Italy Chief Operating Officer Rossen Dimitrov: “Following the launch of our new direct flights from Milan Malpensa to Toronto, it is critical that we have the support of our General Sales Agent Anjuna to help us grow and develop the market – and we have every confidence in Anjuna being able to do this.”
