Welcome back Alitalia14.11.2014
From 15 December 2014, Alitalia will once again fly from Berlin Tegel. As part of a codeshare agreement with airberlin, the Italian airline will offer daily connections between the capital region and the airports Milano Linate, Venice and Rome. All routes will be served by an 88-seater Embraer 175 type aircraft. Travellers can choose between two classes: the Economy Class ‘Classica’, offering passengers the standard inflight service of snacks and beverages, and the Business Class ‘Ottima’, for more space and comfort. Two items of baggage and access to the SkyTeam Lounges are also included in the price. Business travellers and holidaymakers benefit from convenient connecting flights to southern Italy, too, e.g. Palermo. The current flight schedule features daily flights to the three destinations at the following times:
|Destination||Flight number||Departure TXL||Arrival|

With a population of 1.3 million, Milan is Italy’s second-largest city after Rome and is known as the fashion capital. The city in northern Italy lives up to its reputation as a cultural metropolis with an abundance of fine art such as ‘The Last Supper’, which can be marvelled at in the Santa Maria delle Grazie convent.
The lagoon city on the Adriatic Sea is a popular holiday destination for around 20 million tourists a year. With its narrow alleys and countless bridges over numerous canals, the car-free city is ideal for strolling around. Relax and enjoy a cappuccino on St Mark’s Square while watching the hustle and bustle of the city and marvelling at two of its landmarks – St Mark’s Basilica and the Doge’s Palace. Venice has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987.
According to legend, ‘The Eternal City’ was built on seven hills in 753 BC. Flourishing as the capital of the Roman Empire, Rome became the capital of Italy in 1871. Its many historic buildings make it a popular destination not only for tourists. Numerous pilgrims also flock to the Holy City to visit the Pope in the Vatican. As an enclave within the city of Rome, Vatican City is the smallest internationally recognised independent state in the world.
