Alitalia to operate medical freight services from China to Italy

Alitalia has prepared, in coordination with the Department of Civil Protection, the first of a series of freight flights with China for the transport of medical material necessary for the management of the Covid-19 emergency by national hospitals.

For this first humanitarian flight, Alitalia will use a Boeing 777-300ER, the airline with the largest load capacity of the Company, which will take off next Wednesday to Shanghai and return to Rome on Thursday 26 March with stowed 160 cubic meters of medical supplies, including approximately 3 million protective masks.

The delegation of 37 Cuban doctors and 15 nurses for whom Alitalia has organized the journey from Havana to Italy will land today at 18:10 in Milan Malpensa, accepting the request of the Prime Minister and Civil Protection.
