AeroItalia is a relatively new regional airline based in Italy that operates scheduled domestic flights as well as international flights to select cities in Croatia, Greece, Romania, and the United Kingdom. It only recently launched in the middle of 2022 and is still in the process of expanding its route network.
In 2023, it initially planned to expand to long-haul flights (US and Latin America), but is currently focusing on consolidating domestic and European routes. AeroItalia increased its flights to Sicily in 2023, including additional flights to Trapani, Palermo and Catania with the support of the Sicilian government. At the end of 2023, AeroItalia acquired a majority stake in AirConnect, a Romanian regional airline.
The airline is being economically supported by Germán Efromovich (currently AeroItalia's president) who was previously the owner of the well-known Colombian airline, Avianca.
Carry-on baggage and checked baggage rules must be followed when flying with AeroItalia.
When flying with AeroItalia, you must ensure that your carry-on baggage can fit underneath the seat in front of you or in the overhead lockers.
With AeroItalia, your small cabin bag must be no larger than 40 x 30 x 20cm.
If you have purchased a fare that allows you to take a large cabin bag, this must not be larger than 55 x 40 x 20cm and weigh no more than 10kg.
The standard allowance for Economy fares on AeroItalia flights is one piece of checked baggage with a maximum weight of 23kg and dimensions not exceeding 158 cm (linear dimension).
For higher fare classes, a higher checked baggage allowance may exist, such as two pieces of 23kg per passenger.
With AeroItalia flights, you can check in online. You can do so via the AeroItalia check-in page.
Online check-in for AeroItalia flights is open 7 days before your flight is scheduled to depart - it will close 40 minutes before departure. Checking in online saves you time at the airport as you'll be able to avoid long check-in queues.
Depending on the airport, the opening times for airport check-in will vary with AeroItalia flights. Generally, AeroItalia's check-in counters will open 3 hours before the flight is scheduled to depart and close 40 minutes before takeoff.
We recommend arriving at the airport 2-3 hours before your flight - this is to allow yourself enough time to check in, drop of any checked baggage, clear security and reach your boarding gate.
AeroItalia operates a single-class configuration on all of its flights. This means that the only available cabin class is Economy Class.
Economy Class is split into 3 fare types - Basic, Plus and Smart.
This fare is the most affordable option and includes one small carry-on bag and one checked bag that must not weigh more than 23kg.
The Plus fare provides additional benefits to the passenger, such as priority boarding, seat selection and one larger cabin bag.
The Smart fare includes all of the benefits of the Plus Fare, along with flexible flight changes (fees may apply), one extra checked bag and access to the Fast Track lane at security in the airport.
AeroItalia offers 'add-on services' that can be used to enhance your travel experience.
AeroItalia operates short-haul domestic and European flights, therefore, in-flight entertainment is not provided onboard.
To stay entertained on your flight, we recommend bringing your own devices, downloading content beforehand, reading a book or magazine, bringing a travel game or taking in the view outside.
For short-haul flights (within Europe and less than 3 hours), passengers are given a complimentary snack and a choice of beverages including water, tea, coffee, juice and soft drinks. Additional snacks/drinks can be purchased from the in-flight menu.
For medium-haul flights (within Europe and between 3-6 hours), a complimentary tray with a cold meal may be provided - this could include sandwiches, salads or other light options. There may also be a wider selection of beverages to choose from.
For flights exceeding 11 hours (not currently offered but planned for the future), AeroItalia plans to offer 3 in-flight meals including breakfast, lunch and dinner. This will likely consist of hot meals such as pasta or meat options, along with snacks and beverages provided throughout the flight.
