Faced with the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic underway in Europe, Alitalia is “innovating” by launching “Covid-19-free” flights between Rome and Milan! Passengers of the Italian airline in difficulty will either have to perform an antigenic test by nasal swab before boarding or present a test certificate carried out within 72 hours before the flight. Two flights, connecting Rome Fiumicino airport to Linate airport in Milan, are affected: one leaving at 1.30 p.m. every day of the week and the other at 5.30 p.m., Monday to Friday.

“Depending on the results obtained, this proposal could be subsequently extended to other flights, in particular to international and intercontinental flights to and from countries whose epidemiological situation is the subject of greater attention”, specified Alitalia in a press release. The objective is to “launch a route for a resumption of traffic, in particular on the most important flows for the country, and more generally to strengthen the confidence of travelers in the plane”.

According to Alitalia, the airplane remains “the safest means of transport thanks to all the protocols and solutions adopted by the aeronautical sector (…) such as the HEPA filters on board which allow a complete change of air in booth every 2 to 3 minutes “, the modulation of spaces to ensure social distancing, the presence of hydroalcoholic gel dispensers and thermo-scanners. In Fiumicino, the test can be carried out in a “drive-in” operational since August 31 in a parking lot. The structure, open seven days a week with a wide schedule, can accommodate up to 130 cars.

Passengers can also take the test in a dedicated area at Arrivals Terminal 3. This zone, in service since August 16, can accommodate up to 480 passengers at the same time. The tests are free and guarantee a result in less than 30 minutes.
