Alitalia is putting bigger aircraft on its services between Genoa and Rome during November and December.  A 200 seat Airbus A321 will replace a 165 seat Airbus A320 on the airlink between the two cities, a 10 per cent rise in the number of seats available for travellers.


More than 8,000 extra seats will now be available on the route until the end of the year. Alitalia flies six times a day from Genoa to Rome on weekdays, four on Saturdays and three on Sundays.  The flight times are scheduled to ensure that passengers travelling from Cristoforo Colombo airport have convenient onward connections at Alitalia’s Rome Fiumicino hub to 89 destinations in Italy and Europe, the Middle and Far East, North Africa, Asia and the Americas.


Liguria represents one of the Italian regions with the highest percentage of members of Alitalia’s MilleMiglia loyalty programme – some 100,000 – and more than 1,000 frequent flyers belong to the prestigious Club Freccia Alata by virtue of the high frequency of their flights.
