Alitalia adds Marrakech service to Rome Fiumicino hub

Alitalia Marrakech

Massimo Iraci, Alitalia’s Director of Network and AdR’s Route Manager America and Africa, Marco Gobbi were on hand to cut the ceremonial new service ribbon marking the start of the SkyTeam carrier’s twice weekly service to Marrakech.

  • Alitalia started its second service in a week from its Rome Fiumicino (FCO) hub, having already resumed a twice-weekly A330 service to Caracas on 1 September, this time commencing twice-weekly (Wednesdays and Saturdays) operations to Marrakech (RAK) on 3 September. Flights are run using the airline’s 148-seat A320s. Commenting on the new route, Massimo Iraci, Alitalia’s Director of Network said: “This is another element in the growth of destinations and of North Africa, which strengthens the importance of Leonardo da Vinci as a reference hub for Alitalia flights.” AdR’s Route Manager America and Africa, Marco Gobbi added: “We are hoping that this link to Marrakech, which in itself represents an important event, will be the first in a long series of new connections to North Africa, which is a strategic market for Rome and for the Leonardo da Vinci hub.” While there is no direct competition on the 2,128-kilometre airport pair, the city pair is served by Ryanair from Rome Ciampino four times weekly.
