Not all airlines are shrinking
This piece of news stood out in a sea of airline network and frequency cutbacks.
Regional airline Lufthansa Italia began operations last month from Malpensa airport in Milan, flying to Paris and Barcelona. This week they have added services to Brussels, Madrid, Budapest & Bucharest, and when the summer schedules start at the end of the month they will launch their routes to Lisbon and London Heathrow.
Now they have announced that "advanced bookings for the coming months have developed so favourably, we are already in a position to expand our services" (Lufthansa Executive VP, Karl Ulrich Garnadt), so they are adding three Italian destinations: Rome, Naples and Bari.
The new services start on 1st April.
