ITA, the replacement for Alitalia has stuck to their roots and are now an official part of the Skyteam alliance.
Just this morning, business insider reported that the airline will indeed join the alliance. Executives of the airline said that they “agreed with Alitalia Loyalty to continue the partnership that will enable the six million members of the Mille Miglia frequent flyer program to earn and redeem miles on selected Skyteam members’ flights, offering a wealth of opportunities and exclusive services”.
“Joining Skyteam is a natural step, enabling us to continue to deliver a global network and seamless experience that customers flying to and from Italy expect,” said Alfredo Altavilla, executive chairman of ITA Airways.
“We look forward to close cooperation with our Skyteam partners to support the start-up of our company, the Italian flag carrier.“
I am interested to see where this will bring ITA in the realm of aviation, and if this works out for them.
