Alitalia’s new A330 Airbus, known as “Michelangelo Buonarroti”, its tenth new A330 since 2009 and the twentieth new plane introduced by the Italian air company at the beginning of 2012, is already operative.
Alitalia has begun a process of renewal of its aircraft with the disposal of its MD80s and its Boeing 767s, which will entail the Italian carrier having a completely renewed fleet by January 2013. Not only will its aircraft thus be amongst several of the youngest in the world, boasting an average age of between 5/6 years, but they will also rank amongst the most efficient, offering an extremely low environmental impact.
The Italian air company will thus be able to offer a high-quality onboard service on all long-haul flights, both on its new A330s as well as on its Boeing B777s. In fact, starting from July of this year, all cabin configurations have been upgraded in the same three travel classes of the new planes.
The new Airbus A330s can carry up to 224 passengers on intercontinental flights and offer three travel classes: “Magnifica” business class with full flat seats and internationally-recognized high-quality service, “Classica Plus” premium economy with increased on-board comfort and “Classica” revamped economy class.
