- Alitalia’s subsidiary Air One has added a sixth international destination to its base at Milan Malpensa (MXP). Starting Friday 1 June, the low-cost airline introduced daily flights to Warsaw (WAW) using an A320. The route is already served by LOT Polish Airlines with up to three daily flights and was one of the routes Lufthansa Italia operated until its closure at the end of 2011. Indirect competition is also provided by Wizz Air, which operates four weekly flights from Milan Bergamo to Warsaw’s main airport until 16 July, when flights transfer to the new Warsaw Modlin Airport.
