“In such an evolving phase for air-transport in Italy, it is of vital importance to provide our customers full mobility together with efficient and competitive services – declared Alessandro Notari, Financial and Commercial Director of Air Italy – Right from the beginning of Air Italy activity as a scheduled carrier, Verona has been a highly important terminal and with great satisfaction we are now able to operate even three daily flights to Rome, which is a crucial destination for the large catchment area around Catullo airport. The new frequencies to Naples and Bari will even strengthen our rule in Verona – continued Notari – where we are already the second carrier for number of passangers transported: and if further opportunities will become concrete, we’ll be ready to reinforce our precence even more”.
“Today we are announcing a further intensification in the Verona - Rome connection with the aim to benefit our passengers despite the present state of uncertainty and settlement that air-transportation is facing. This choice – explains general director of Garda Airports System, Claudio Boccardo – is part of a development plan, which has already been presented by airport Catullo and which will be completed in the coming years, if the present managing society will be confirmed (necessary condition more then ever considering the turbolent market conditions of today). I believe it is a top priority to consolidate the global project that president Bortolazzi has already introduced and this will mean to implement mobility and connections on the whole catchment area around the airport, to great advantage of the so many trade and business activities in our territory”.
