Hainan Airlines has formed a new partnership with Alitalia that will provide Chinese travellers with connections to multiple destinations across Italy.
The Chinese carrier already flies to Rome from Xi’an and Chongqing, and passengers on these services will now be able to connect onwards to nine Italian destinations: Bari, Bologna, Catania, Florence, Milan, Naples, Turin, Venice and Verona. Hainan Airlines will also codeshare on Alitalia’s direct Rome-Beijing flights.
In return, Alitalia will place its code on Hainan Airlines’ domestic flights connecting Beijing with Chongqing, Guangzhou, Shanghai and Xi’an, Chongqing with Guangzhou and Shanghai, and Xi’an with Chengdu, Guangzhou and Shanghai.
Alitalia will also codeshare on Hainan Airlines’ Rome flights, enabling single-ticket travel on a host of new routings between Italy and China.
