    According to Syteam´s website……………..

    “SkyTeam welcomes ITA Airways on board”. (Skyteam website)

    AMSTERDAM, 29 October 2021 – “SkyTeam, the global airline alliance, has welcomed ITA Airways – Italy’s new national carrier – into the alliance, replacing Alitalia. With ITA Airways on board, SkyTeam’s 700 million customers will continue to enjoy seamless connections to key destinations across Italy.”

    It that is the case how is it then that almost one month later (24-11-21) in the list of members ITA does not appear but Alitalia does appear? Or is that just plain sloppiness.

    Anyway from that we get the first signs of co-operation between ITA and Delta – now supposedly both members of Skyteam.
    “Delta Air Lines And ITA Apply For Codeshare Authorizations”, (Simple Flying, 24-11-21)

    Delta Air Lines And ITA Apply For Codeshare Authorizations

    ….These codeshares will enable ITA to fly into Cancun, Mexico City and Monterrey while Delta will fly into Cairo and Tunis

    Yet in the Business Traveller copy we quoted ITA Airways board member Alfredo Altavilla as saying the airline’s arrangement was signed for a period of one year.

    Of course airlines of rival alliances can and do code share from time to time.

    So we shall have to see how this develops.

    News that ITA Airways is to receive the first of four A350s in June 2022.

    One of the first routes on which they will be deployed will be Rome-Buenos Aires.

    The A350 can operate this route non-stop whereas the existing A330s in the fleet would have to stop en route.
