Alitalia To Temporarily Suspend Milan Malpensa Operations

Alitalia is suspending all operations at Milan Malpensa while limiting Milan Linate to domestic services as the Italian coronavirus outbreak continues.

Alitalia is suspending all operations at Milan Malpensa while limiting Milan Linate to domestic services as the Italian coronavirus outbreak continues. The announcement was made on Sunday by the Italian flag carrier. The northern Lombardy region of Italy is experiencing a high number of coronavirus cases.

“Following the today Decree of the Italian President of the Council of Ministers, which includes new measures for the containment of Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Alitalia informs that it has implemented a plan to reorganize flights to and from Milan (Linate and Malpensa) and Venice airports. The plan comes on the heels of the reductions already undertaken by the Airline in recent days as a consequence of the drop of passengers due to the increased number of restrictions and travelers’ lower propensity to circulation.” -Alitalia press release

In fact, according to Flight Global, the last Alitalia flight into Milan Malpensa (MXP,) before the suspension comes into effect, is flight AZ605 from New York. This flight will land at 10:40 in the morning.

Alitalia normally offers services to New York JFK, Tokyo Narita and Rome from its hub at Malpensa, in addition to a long list of European destinations.
