ITA Airways Confirms Order for 28 Airbus Jets


Toulouse, 2nd December 2021 | New Italian Carrier, ITA Airways, has confirmed an order for 28 new Airbus aircraft. These aircraft includes 7 A220s, 11 A320neos and 10 A330neos. They will also lease a few A350s to expand their long-haul fleet.

According to Airbus, these new aircraft will expand the initial ITA Airways fleet with a new generation aircraft with better environmental performance, equipped with latest technologies and state-of-the-art cabins to guarantee maximum operational efficiencies for the airline and the best comfort to travelers.

Also, it seems like ITA Airways prefers Airbus jets over Boeing jets for long-haul travel. Its predecessor, Alitalia, which provided some of the aircraft for the new ITA airways, used Boeing 777s for long-haul routes instead.

Alfredo Altavilla, Executive President of ITA Airways said:

Today the strategic partnership with Airbus takes an important step forward with the finalisation of the order we announced last September. In addition to this agreement, possibilities for further collaboration have emerged, in particular regarding technological developments in the aviation sector and digitalisation, where Airbus is the market leader. All this is part of the actions to achieve our environmental sustainability objectives
