Abu Dhabi is the first new route opened by Alitalia since the January launch of operations following Etihad Airways acquisition of a 49% stake in the company.
The Venice-Abu Dhabi flight will take off this Sunday and Alitalia will also launch a new flight from Milan Malpensa Airport to the capital of the United Arab Emirates, tripling the number of its flights for Abu Dhabi.
From Venice’s Marco Polo airport, the first Alitalia flight for Abu Dhabi will take off at 9:55 pm, landing in Abu Dhabi at 5:55 am (local time) on the following day.
Flights from Abu Dhabi to Venice will depart at 9:05am to arrive at the Marco Polo Airport at 1:35pm. The service will be operated using a 250-seat Airbus A330 aircraft, arranged in three service classes: Magnifica (business class), Classica Plus (premium economy) and Classica (economy).
