ITA Airways expands its “train + plane” offering to enhance passenger convenience


ITA Airways have announced a new addition to the intermodality project sponsored jointly by Aeroporti di Roma. This further incentives sustainable transportation to the airport whilst simultaneously prioritising convenience for passengers.

As of today, passengers arriving at Rome Fiumicino airport by train with Trenitalia and holding an onward ITA Airways ticket to any domestic or international destination (excluding only the USA and Israel) may check in and drop off their luggage at the station. This will be possible at the dedicated FCO Connect desks serviced by Swissport.

This builds upon the airline’s integrated, sustainability focused “train + plane” package which simplifies the travel experience for passengers, combining rail with air travel on a single ticket.

Marco Troncone, CEO of Aeroporti di Roma said:

“The path toward decarbonization of the aeronautical sector will have to provide significant innovations of service, as well as technological innovations, and can produce important advantages for the passengers and for our country and the Italian transportation system as a whole.”

In the pursuit of reducing environmental harm, ITA Airways has taken a broader view of the travel experience leveraging partnerships across this journey. The airline’s goal is to have a ticket counter at every airport connected to the Frecciarossa rail system, allowing the incentive to thrive across Italy.
