Alitalia has resumed direct services between Rome and Boston today. The first Alitalia flight to Boston Logan airport departed from Rome Fiumicino at 10:20 am (local time) this morning.
The service to Boston is in addition to the one to New York, resumed in early June, and will be operated three times a week (from Italy every Monday, Thursday and Saturday, from the United States every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday).
The flight will land at Boston Logan airport at 1:40 pm. The departure of the Alitalia flight from the American city is scheduled at 8:40 pm (at 5:40 pm on Sundays) with arrival in Fiumicino airport at 10:40 am (local time) of the following morning (at 7:40 am on Mondays).
In compliance with the current laws, all Alitalia aircraft are sanitised with high-powered sanitizing products every day and, thanks to HEPA filters and vertical circulation, the air on board is not only renewed every three minutes, but it is also 99.7% pure, just like in a sterile medical room. All passengers are also required to complete a self-certification form before boarding, which certifies that they have not had close contact with people diagnosed with Covid-19. In addition, passengers must bring protective masks to be worn from their arrival at the airport and during the flight, taking into account that they have to bring an adequate number of protective masks according to the duration of the flight, since it is necessary to replace the mask with a new one every 4 hours.
