Italy’s new flag carrier ITA Airways introduces flights between London City airport and Milan Linate from March 28. It will wet lease two Embraer E190 aircraft from German Airways to serve this new route.

According to ITA, “These are airports and destinations where profitability and operating conditions are guaranteed by smaller aircraft, which fully explains the choice for the German carrier’s Embraer E190, an aircraft not currently available in the ITA Airways fleet”.

The London-bound services will depart Milan at 0700, 1220 and 1740, with the return legs leaving at 0825, 1345 and 1905. This new route is launched following British Airways’ decision to switch its London City-Milan flights from Linate airport to Malpensa.
