Rio for Alitalia plus bag

Alitalia is to fly non-stop from Rome to Rio de Janeiro initially three times a week from next June, and stepping up to four in July.  The airline already operates daily to Sao Paulo.  A three-class Airbus A330 will operate the service.

The airline has also introduced a new long haul baggage policy bringing it into line with most other international airlines.  Maximum weight in Economy Class is now 23kg for a single bag whilst Premium Economy customers are allowed two bags.

Following a successful testing phase, Alitalia has also introduced a new baggage delivery service, called “Door to Door”, for passengers travelling on Italian domestic flights.  It offers home collection of the baggage and delivery at the chosen address.  Included in the service is on-line baggage tracking by phone or SMS – and confirmation of baggage delivery via SMS. www.alitalia.co.uk
