Rome, 17 July 2015 – Alitalia today introduces Light, the new fare dedicated to those travelling with only carry-on luggage in Italy and Europe.
Light is a new way of traveling with Alitalia, with less luggage and convenient prices starting at € 79 for a round-trip flight, without giving up comfort and quality of service.
The new Light fare is available on selected non-stop round-trip flights operated by Alitalia from 14 September 2015 on its domestic network, and on International routes between Italy and Germany, France, Spain, England, Greece, Turkey, Poland, Romania, Georgia, Algeria and Egypt.
Light always includes the in-flight catering and allows mileage accrual. The seat on-board is assigned automatically.
“With the Light fare, Alitalia addresses the market in a completely new manner as never before” - says Ariodante Valeri, Alitalia Chief Commercial Officer -. “Light is a simple fare, clear and particularly convenient with average savings of 25% compared to base fares. Light is not a seasonal promotional fare but a fixed component of the new Alitalia offer: an offer that meets the expectation of passengers who seek quality above all, as well as convenient prices for young travelers and small and medium business”.
Passengers who travel with the Light fare must check-in exclusively online on Alitalia.com or through the Alitalia App for smartphones and tablets, or in airports at fast check-in stations only. Carry-on luggage must be within the size and weight requirements.
Those who should need to check a baggage after buying a flight at the Light fare, can still do so for an additional fee. The fee can be purchased at a special rate prior to going to the airport on Alitalia.com, through the call center or travel agency.
To members of the exclusive clubs (Freccia Alata, Ulisse and the SkyTeam, Etihad Airways and airberlin equivalent categories) Alitalia offers double advantage of checked baggage free of charge and seat selection when traveling on Light fare.
The Light fare is not available on domestic PSO (Public Service Obligation) routes governed by regulations already granting dedicated rates. Light is on sale on Alitalia.com, or by calling the Call center number at +39.06.65649, or through travel agencies and at airport ticket counters.
