ITA Airways has launched scheduled flights with its first Airbus A320neo aircraft, the third new type the Italian carrier has debuted within the last year.

The airline, which launched flights as a successor carrier to Alitalia in October 2021, has already introduced A220s and A350s in the past year as part of major fleet renewal based around Airbus aircraft.

It today flew its first A320neo service, connecting Rome Fiumicino to Palermo’s Punta Raisi airport. ITA will deploy A320neos on domestic routes out of Rome, as well as on short-haul services to Brussels, Paris Charles de Gaulle and Madrid.

ITA, which Cirium fleets data shows has 66 aircraft currently in service, will take 39 new aircraft this year as it continues to renew its fleet. These include its first of another Airbus type, the A330-900, of which it expects to take nine this year.
