Welcome to the third Alitalia Virtual IFC event:
Celebrating 1 year since our founding!
For this special event, we are excited to present to you a Fly-In at our headquarters and main hub, Rome-Fiumicino Airport (LIRF). What makes this even more special is that we will be commemorating the Italian “Day of the Republic” (Festa della Repubblica), which is celebrated every year on June 2nd. We are a bit late ;)
The day marks the formation of the Italian Republic in 1946, after the results of a referendum indicated the Italian people were in favour of reforming the country from a Kingdom to a Republic. This year’s celebration is of particular significance, as it is the 75th Anniversary of the original event taking place!
Airports: Rome-Fiumicino (LIRF) | Catania (LICC) | Venice (LIPZ) | Alghero (LIEA)
Time: 2021-06-13T18:00:00Z → 2021-06-13T20:00:00Z

Alitalia Virtual and its pilots will be highlighting three domestic routes from the AZVA network into Rome (LIRF), with three group flights departing from lesser known, but historically important Italian cities:
