Alitalia’s long-haul flights enrich the travel experience with unique comfort and services
AN ITALIAN EXPERIENCE
The essence of travelling is getting to know places, people and cultures. A fundamental part of this vital and exciting experience is in the journey itself. It is no coincidence that one of the most powerful narratives, common to all literary traditions, photographs the hero’s journey to accomplish his or her mission and achieve the goal. Even today, modern men and women explore and experience the world, for work or pleasure, paying particular attention to the conditions that will lead them to their destination. Alitalia, the main Italian airline, by vocation and tradition can only respect and fully embrace this sensitivity: the journey for Italians is always a total and all-encompassing experience and, in flight, the echoes and suggestions of the journey are amplified and colored with extraordinary nuances. This is why Alitalia, especially for its long-haul flights, has studied a range of services and solutions that offer passengers the possibility to access a greater dimension, in which atmosphere and sensations reverberate perfectly in line with the soul of the BelPaese, home of hospitality, sharing of knowledge and flavors, a place for travelers.
Italy is no longer just a point of departure or arrival for Alitalia flights, but a very pleasant travel companion, always present in every detail and comfort on board.
Every flight is already a journey, an experience. “Magnifica” is rightly the name chosen to designate Alitalia’s long-haul Business Class: all Italian hospitality concentrated in a space designed and organized to meet every need. To start the adventure, all you have to do is sit back, literally melting into the comfortable embrace of the leather seats upholstered by Poltrona Frau, winners of the prestigious “Best Business Class Seat Design” award for the second consecutive year by Global Traveler. In addition to reclining to 180°, for an impeccable sleeping position, and direct aisle access from every seat, these seats, the result of Made in Italy know-how, also offer a massage function to relieve the muscles of any tension.
ITALIAN MADE COMFORT AND FLAVORS
For Alitalia, flying rhymes with Italy and, consequently, great care and attention to detail are dedicated, in Magnifica Class, to the preparation of delicious dishes, served on elegant Richard Ginori porcelain.
On flights that connect Italy with the USA and Canada, the traveler will be able to taste the best recipes of the Italian gastronomic tradition, which have earned the company, for 10 consecutive years, the title of “Best Airline Cuisine” awarded by Global Traveler.
The menus, created by Alitalia together with the professionals of Gambero Rosso, speak the sweetest and tastiest of languages, that of goodness and quality. Passengers have the possibility, through the “Dine Anytime” service, to choose when to eat, recreating at high altitude the experience of a special meal. And every truly Italian meal is paired with the best wine combination. An excellent “onboard wine cellar,” is available in Magnifica Business Class. The precious selection of Italian labels is chosen in collaboration with Gambero Rosso. And if a fresh and sparkling glass of Villa Sandi Prosecco brightens the flight as an opener, the four blends of Lavazza Coffee, with their aromas, are a fragrant conclusion to an Italian meal—high standards served at an altitude of 30,000 feet.
TRAVELLING ALITALIA: THE GIFT OF TIME
Long haul flights can be daunting to the less experienced travelers, but a wide selection of Italian and international films, themed programs, TV series, video games and a collection of musical pieces make up the entertainment bouquet available to all passengers. There is space on each flight for everything, except boredom. Young travelers get extra-special attention with content dedicated just to them. Even in the clouds, on select aircraft, fliers feel connected to loved ones on the ground thanks to Wi-Fi and international roaming, as well as the possibility to conveniently charge electronic devices.
With Alitalia, travelling stylishly all’Italiana is within anyone’s reach thanks to a diversified and impeccable offering.
The Premium Economy Class, which provides extra comfort, with a reserved cabin and seats with 40% more space than those of the Economy Class, a welcome drink, Italian meals, guaranteed relaxation thanks to noise-cancelling headphones, priority services to make check-in and boarding easier. Or, there is the Economy Class, which does not mean compromising comfort, but is the perfect combination of convenience and service, to conquer every part of the world, without limits and feeling perfectly at ease, as true citizens of the world.
CASA ALITALIA: A DOOR TO THE WORLD
For the best Italian welcome, Alitalia could not fail to offer its passengers a point of reference, a very specific place where they feel at home. In Rome, Fiumicino and Milan Malpensa, “Casa Alitalia,” the company’s flagship lounges are a masterpiece of design and hospitality Made in Italy. They offer a full Italian experience, from cuisine to lifestyle. The heart of the lounges is the kitchen area, where skilled chefs offer, twice a day, a series of menus based on pasta and pizza, while guests can always enjoy a
buffet and bar area, not to mention the reading areas, the exclusive VIP room and complimentary Wi-Fi connectivity. If the flight is to be an integral part of a journey, Alitalia goes further and offers its passengers an unforgettable welcome, even before departure. You can toast with delicious international drinks and cocktails or be enchanted by Lavazza espresso coffee blends.
In addition, passengers travelling in Magnifica Business Class, in the medium-haul business class, members of the Freccia Alata Plus, Freccia Alata and SkyTeam Elite Plus Clubs and Alitalia American Express Platinum card holders can access the Alitalia lounges available at various airports. Casa Alitalia is, in short, welcome, warmth and family: like the family in the MilleMiglia loyalty program, which offers many advantages to its members. After all, every trip is an opportunity to make every minute special, accompanied by the professionalism of an airline able to bring the identity of its country in all aspects of its business, to make the world richer and more connected, without forgetting the strength of its personality and tradition.
