Three new A320s from the Airbus premises in Toulouse have now joined the Alitalia fleet. Named "Torquato Tasso," "Niccolo Machiavelli" and "Giovanni Pascoli," the three new aircraft will be mainly used on the Milan-Rome-Milan route.

The number of new A320 Airbuses in the fleet now rises to 35. The three now operational A320s replace three MD80s (leaving the fleet) and join the six that arrived in March and the 26 that joined the fleet in the past two years. A further five A320s will be delivered by the end of the year, making the Alitalia fleet one of the most modern in Europe.

The new A320 has been operating daily on the Warsaw-Rome-Warsaw route since Oct. 2. Poland is one of the very few European countries chosen by Alitalia where this newly received aircraft operates.

The fleet renewal plan will see the arrival of a further 55 A320 Airbuses for short- and medium-haul flights and 12 A330 Airbuses for long-haul flights by 2013.

The new Airbus A320s, featuring the green "environmentally friendly" company logo, meet the most advanced international standards; they are equipped with the latest technology and the most efficient engines, with reduced noise and improved fuel consumption.

The new Alitalia Airbus fleet is also top of the range in terms of comfort and design. All the "slim" leather seats are equipped with individual LCD screens offering personalized onboard entertainment; they have also been ergonomically designed to maximize comfort and increase the space between passengers. Always aiming to improve its service, Alitalia is also replacing all the seats on the 48 Airbus aircraft already in the fleet with new ones, matching the new Airbus A320 seats. Already by spring, 80 percent of the short- and medium-haul aircraft will be equipped with the latest and most comfortable seats.
