ITA Airways: 9 weekly frequencies to fly from Rome and Buenos Aires in the 2024 summer season


Codeshare agreement with Aerolíneas Argentinas is enhanced.

ROME – ITA Airways announces two additional frequencies on the route to Argentina in the upcoming summer season. This will bring to 9 the total of weekly frequencies between Rome Fiumicino and Buenos Aires starting from June. The increase in the offer to the Argentine capital is a further confirmation of the excellent results in terms of load factor recorded in 2023 by the Rome Fiumicino – Buenos Aires nonstop flight.

Thanks to the new frequencies, ITA Airways will offer up to 30 weekly round-trip flights to South America in the peak of the 2024 summer season.

South America is not only a strategic market for business and cargo traffic, but also a favorite holiday destination for Italians and home to millions of people of Italian origin. The airline is indeed the carrier of choice for the many Italian and local communities in Argentina and Brazil who choose ITA Airways to feel “at home” from the moment they step on board.

In addition to connections to Buenos Aires, ITA Airways operates up to 14 weekly frequencies (28 flights) from Rome Fiumicino to Sao Paulo, Brazil’s most populous city, and 7 weekly frequencies (14 flights) to Rio de Janeiro.

To further emphasize its focus on the South American market, the Italian reference carrier, has also enhanced its codeshare agreement with Aerolíneas Argentinas, integrating nonstop connections between Rome Fiumicino and Buenos Aires Ezeiza International Airport in the framework of its partnership with the Argentinian flag carrier.

From now on, ITA Airways’ travelers will fly from Rome Fiumicino to Buenos Aires with a single ticket, benefiting from complete connectivity from passenger and baggage check-in to arrival at the final destination.

The codeshare flights between Italy and Argentina are already on sale on the two airlines’ websites, booking systems and travel agencies.

ITA Airways will apply its “AZ” code on flights from Rome Fiumicino to Buenos Aires Ezeiza as well as on 32 domestic destinations in Argentina (Bahía Blanca, Bariloche, Comodoro Rivadavia, Córdoba, Corrientes, El Calafate, Esquel, Formosa, Iguazú, La Rioja, Jujuy, Mar del Plata, Mendoza, Neuquén, Paraná, Posadas, Resistencia, Río Gallegos, Río Grande, Río Hondo, Rosario, Salta, San Luis, San Martín de los Andes, San Juan, Santa Fe, San Rafael, Santiago del Estero, Trelew, Tucumán, Ushuaia, and Viedma) and on 6 international destinations in South America including Santiago (Chile), Asunción (Paraguay), São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), Lima (Peru), and Montevideo (Uruguay).

Aerolíneas Argentinas, instead, will apply its “AR” code on ITA Airways’ flights between Buenos Aires and Rome Fiumicino as well as on connecting flights from Rome to 13 domestic destinations in Italy (Bari, Bologna, Brindisi, Catania, Florence, Genoa, Lamezia Terme, Naples, Palermo, Reggio Calabria, Trieste, Turin, and Venice) and on 7 international destinations (Athens, Brussels, Barcelona, Geneva, London, Madrid, and Zurich).

To date, ITA Airways counts 34 codeshare agreements, an accomplishment achieved in just over two years since the start of the Company’s operations.
