ITA Airways, Italy’s new national carrier, has firmed up an order with Airbus for 28 aircraft, including seven A220s, 11 A320neos and ten A330neos – the latest version of the most popular A330 wide-body airliner. The order confirms the Memorandum of Understanding announced on September 30, 2021. In addition, the airline will pursue its plans to lease Airbus A350s to complement its fleet modernisation.
“Today the strategic partnership with Airbus takes an important step forward with the finalisation of the order we announced last September. In addition to this agreement, possibilities for further collaboration have emerged, in particular regarding technological developments in the aviation sector and digitalisation, where Airbus is a market leader. All this is part of the actions to achieve our environmental sustainability objectives, ” said Alfredo Altavilla, Executive President of ITA Airways.
