Italian flag carrier ITA Airways will upgrade its Tokyo Haneda-Rome Fiumicino route to a daily service starting this month, increased from five flights a week currently offered.

ITA Airways says the Haneda route has seen “excellent results in terms of load factor” since it was inaugurated at the end of 2022.

From Haneda, ITA Airways departs at 1225 and the flights arrive in Rome at 2010 same day. They return from Rome to Haneda at 1455 and arrive in the Japanese capital at 1025 the following day.

ITA Airways deploys its latest-technology Airbus A350-900 aircraft on Haneda-Rome, including business class, premium economy and economy class seating options.

ITA Airways’ expansion into additional long- and medium-haul markets continues.

The carrier will launch a new service from Rome to Chicago in April, and from Rome to Toronto and Riyadh in May.

In June, the airline plans to launch routes to Accra and Kuwait, followed by Dakar in July, and Jeddah in August.

This summer, ITA Airways will operate flights to 57 destinations, including 16 domestic, 26 international and 15 intercontinental destinations.

ITA Airways, the former Alitalia, launched operations in October 2021 with a fleet of 52 aircraft. It has since grown to 83 aircraft, including 40 of Airbus’ latest-generation series of aircraft, including the A350-900, A330neo and A320neo family of aircraft.
