Alitalia to start service from London City to Rome
Flights are being launched from London City Airport to Rome as Alitalia increases its offering from Docklands.
The service to the Italian city, which begins on April 1, will run six times a week using an Embraer 190 aircraft. They will land at Fiumicino, the busiest airport in the country.
Meanwhile, the airline's other route, to Milan Linate, will see six additional evening flights from March 31.
This means there will be 17 flights from London City to Milan, rising to 18 when an extra weekend flight is introduced.
Another route to take off next month is to Kristiansand in Norway.
Premium start-up Flynonstop will run the five flight a week service from April 25.
