Starting next week, Alitalia will offer a complimentary chauffeur car service for its business class customers who fly to 35 destinations served directly or via Abu Dhabi.
The chauffeur car service is available for Alitalia flights to Abu Dhabi (from Rome , Milan and Venice) and New York JFK from Rome and also to destinations served in conjunction with Etihad Airways, such as Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Mumbai, Delhi, Hong Kong and Johannesburg.
The service will be extended from May when Alitalia launches new long-haul flights to Santiago and Mexico City.
Once a business class ticket has been purchased and the service booked, on the day of departure a chauffeur meets and greets customers and accompanies them to the airport. After the flight with Alitalia, another chauffeur meets the traveller at the arrival airport and takes them to their chosen address.
The same arrangements apply for the return trip.
Marco Martinasso, Vice President Marketing at Alitalia, said: "Alitalia’s revamped long-haul business class belongs to the premium classes élite because of its quality and attention to details, including wi-fi* and a new ‘dine anytime’ service.
“And the chauffeur service, to a range of destinations through Abu Dhabi, can only enhance the high standards of service for our premium customers.”
Alitalia is in the midst of transforming the whole travel experience for its customers on long and medium-haul flights thanks to an on-going fleet renewal with new cabin interiors and new service.
