Alitalia joins four other carriers on busy Rome-Heraklion route

  • Alitalia commenced a thrice-weekly service on the 1,334-kilometre sector between its home hub of Rome Fiumicino (FCO) and the Greek holiday destination of Heraklion (HER) on 26 July. As expected with this type of route, it is a seasonal operation, flying up until 31 August only. The service, flown by a variety of equipment, will be up against four incumbents – easyJet (flying five times weekly), Blue Panorama Airlines (four times weekly), Vueling (twice-weekly) and Meridiana (weekly).
