Delta and Alitalia customers have more choice of COVID-tested travel between U.S. and Italy
Delta Air Lines and partner Alitalia are now codesharing on COVID-tested flights, offering customers quarantine-free entry to the U.S. from Italy’s capital city. Effective immediately, essential travelers can book to fly from Rome’s Fiumicino Airport on Alitalia’s dedicated COVID-tested service to New York-JFK and Delta’s COVID-tested service to Atlanta’s Hartsfield Jackson International Airport.
“Offering codeshares on our COVID-tested routes between two of the largest airport hubs in the U.S. and Italy is the latest in Delta and Alitalia’s longstanding partnership of delivering choice and convenience for our customers,” said Perry Cantarutti, Delta’s senior vice president Alliances and International. “These pilot programs are creating a blueprint for COVID-safe, quarantine-free travel that combines rigorous testing with extensive cleanliness and hygiene measures to help reopen international travel on a broader scale and restart the global economy.”
To fly on Delta and Alitalia’s COVID-tested flights between New York-JFK and Atlanta and Rome, customers will need to test negative for COVID-19 both prior to departure and on arrival in Rome.
