ITA Airways and the National Italian American Foundation (NIAF) have signed an important agreement to ensure air connectivity with preferred fares to the Italian American community members. The United States represents ITA Airways' number one international market and destination, the most strategic one after Italy, as well as the country with the largest number of Italian origins citizens.

Therefore, direct flights from North America to Italy are not only means for leisure and business travel but also "bridges" connecting the broader Italian community in the U.S. More in detail, the Italian flagship carrier is providing to NIAF members traveling between the United States and Italy an ongoing dedicated discounted offer and several flash discount promotions within the agreement term.

The first flash promotion exclusively dedicated to NIAF members, and their companions consists in a 20% discount on business class fares (excluding surcharges and taxes) on selected routes, including New York - Rome, New York - Milan, as well as Boston – Rome direct flights. The selling period will last until July 07, 2023 and travel period will end on August 31, 2023.

NIAF members and their companions will also benefit of an ongoing 10% reduction on fares (excluding surcharges and taxes) for all routes within ITA Airways' network connecting the United States and Italy, as well as the entire Italian domestic network (excluding Sardinia). This special discount (non-cumulable with flash promo) is available for travel until December 31, 2023 and applicable to all cabins: economy, superior, and business.

"By entering into this partnership with ITA Airways, we are delighted to offer our members exclusive discounts when traveling to Italy," said Robert Allegrini, NIAF President. "We believe this collaboration will further enhance the connection between Italy and the United States and will make it more economical for our members to experience Italy firsthand," added Allegrini.

"The partnership further strengthens ITA Airways' commitment beyond tourism flows development by fostering the political, economic and cultural relations between the two Countries, which were recently enhanced by the opening of ITA Airways new Washington Dulles - Rome Fiumicino route. The new direct flight between the Italian and U.S. capital operating five weekly roundtrip flights that will become daily from August 1 to cover the high season demand, integrates the ITA Airways services already operating between Rome Fiumicino and New York (JFK), Boston, Miami, Los Angeles and, as of July 1st 2023 between Rome and San Francisco and from Milano Malpensa and New York (JFK)" stated Emiliana Limosani, ITA Airways Chief Commercial Officer.

With direct flights to New York, Miami, Boston, Los Angeles, Washington, and San Francisco (launching on July 1) ITA Airways will operate 122 weekly roundtrip flights between North America and Italy in the height of the summer season.
