A flight that also supports the timid recovery of the tourism sector directed to Sicily
MILAN – EasyJet announces new routes from Milan Linate city airport to Sicily starting next 11 June. On that date, 2 daily connections will be inaugurated with Catania and Palermo. In the meantime, the Luton carrier announces that in the summer it will operate on all Milanese airports, connecting Lombardy with over 58 national and European destinations for a total of 66 routes.
The routes between the city airport of Milan and the Fontanarossa airport of Catania and with the Falcone Borsellino airport of Palermo are on sale from today on all channels.
“We welcome the new connection operated by easyJet, which we thank with enthusiasm – comments the managing director of the SAC, Nico Torrisi. Milan Linate is a very popular destination and the increase in flights and companies will undoubtedly guarantee an increase in competition which, as repeatedly stressed and already successfully tested last summer, is the main factor in allowing prices to fall. Being able to reach the center of Milan in a short time undoubtedly represents an added value for all passengers, in particular for those, and there are many, who travel for work ”.
“The launch of connections with Linate by easyJet is commendable – adds the president of the SAC, Sandro Gambuzza. Despite the difficulties of the moment, the airline continues to invest in our airport, helping to guarantee mobility to and from Sicily and to increase tourist flows. A very obvious choice in a period of market contraction which represents a great and encouraging sign of a restart ”.
The new connection with Milan Linate also supports the timid recovery of the direct tourism sector in Sicily.
“We know that Italians will prefer holidays in Italy this summer and for this reason we continue to adjust our offer for the domestic market and offer our customers even more options and flexibility to plan their summer in peace and safety. These new connections from the center of Milan to Sicily confirm our commitment to the island not only for those who choose Sicily as a destination for their holidays but also for those who have to move between the two regions for work reasons. We look forward to the next summer season and we hope that the expected progress in vaccination programs, as well as the widespread use of tampons, will encourage the Government to work on a roadmap for the reopening, which finally defines the times and ways in which restrictions can be gradually loosened and Italians are thus allowed to book their travel peacefully. – commented Lorenzo Lagorio, easyJet Italia Country Manager.
