Lufthansa Italia Cleared for Take-Off

The first scheduled service to be operated by the new Lufthansa Italia is scheduled for take-off on February 2.  The maiden LH1790 flight is from Milan to Barcelona. A second flight, LH1770, will take off for Paris 35 minutes later.

Customers from Milan and the Lombardy region will have a choice of eight new nonstop connections within Europe from Malpensa. The initial first two flights will be followed in early March by additional connections to Brussels, Budapest, Bucharest and Madrid. London (Heathrow) and Lisbon will be added to the network in the 2009 summer flight schedules at the end of March.

Flights with Lufthansa Italia can already be booked from $130 for  roundtrip, including taxes and fees. Special inaugural fares are available to Lufthansa customers at lower cost to mark the start of the new connections. These flights, which are tied to a limited number of seats, can be taken on dates of a passenger’s choosing.

The inaugural specials can be booked at www.lufthansa.com or at a travel agency.
