WhatAir Italy has launched a nonstop flight between Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Milan’s Malpensa International Airport (MXP). This marks the first direct flight between the two cities and the first time the airline has provided service to LAX. Los Angeles is now one of four U.S. cities to provide direct service to Milan.
Why It MattersLast year, about 97,300 passengers traveled between LAX and MXP via connecting flights, making LAX the third-largest U.S. market for travel to and from Milan. And, in general, Italy continues to be hot for travel advisors’ clients — this new flight gives jetsetters another convenient option.
Fast Facts- The airline will use new, long-haul Airbus A330-200, which offers up to 24 seats in the Business Class cabin
- The Economy Class offers 228 seats
- The flight times are expected to be 12 hours to Milan Malpensa Airport, and 13 hours and 50 minutes on the return flight to LAX.
- Flights will be scheduled for Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays
What They Are Saying"Travel between Los Angeles and Milan has nearly doubled in the past two years, and we are pleased that the day has come for this first ever nonstop flight," said Deborah Flint, chief executive officer, LAWA. “This route will create new opportunities for international travelers to visit L.A., a diverse and thriving region, and for Angelenos to experience exceptional beauty, art, food, culture and vibrancy of Milan. Our cities have much in common, and with this flight we are more closely connected than ever before."
