easyJet and Neos: from June flights will be available from southern Italy to New York and Santo Domingo via Milan Malpensa
The partnership between easyJet, the first airline of Milan Malpensa, and Neos, the second Italian airline part of the Alpitour group, aims to increase the connectivity between southern Italy and the rest of the world, thanks to the complementarity of the network of the two companies.
easyJet and Neos have announced a partnership to further improve connections from Italy to some of the most attractive intercontinental destinations. From June 16, easyJet will offer connecting flights from Catania, Naples and Palermo to Neos passengers departing from JFK airport in New York and Santo Domingo La Romana airport, with a stopover in Milan Malpensa airport, easyJet’s main hub in continental Europe.
Thanks to this partnership, easyJet, the first airline of Milan Malpensa, will offer flights from Catania, Palermo and Naples to Neos and Alpitour customers to the United States and the Dominican Republic, allowing the Alpitour group, first tour operator from Italy, to further expand its product offering in southern Italy.
The partnership will improve connectivity between the southern Italian regions and the main non-European markets served by Neos, offering new travel options for passengers departing from Sicily and Campania, while facilitating access to these regions for foreign visitors. Additionally, it will increase passenger inflow, allowing Neos passengers to reach a wider range of Italian destinations by taking advantage of easyJet’s extensive network in Italy. Thanks to this partnership, customers will have the possibility to easily collect their luggage at the end of their trip directly at the destination airport.
The partnership, which will allow the distribution of easyJet and Neos connecting flights by Alpitour agencies, builds on the collaboration already in place on the Worldwide by easyJet platform on which Neos will continue to be present.
Lorenzo Lagorio, Country Manager easyJet Italy, mentioned:
“We are delighted to launch this partnership with Neos, which allows us to expand the range of connections from Italy to a growing number of destinations around the world. At a time of strong tourism recovery, easyJet is committed to making the travel experience easier for its Italian customers, even when traveling to faraway destinations, while encouraging tourists from other continents to visit the wonders of our country. The Neos-easyJet partnership is a step in this direction, transforming and enhancing the concept of travel through two of the most popular brands for those flying to and from Italy.”
Aldo Sarnataro, Neos Commercial Directormentioned:
“The partnership with easyJet begun with Worldwide over the past few years, allows us to introduce a new element to our business, further expanding routes to and from Milan Malpensa and enabling us to offer a wider and more more flexible for incoming leisure tourism. . Neos has been working for some time to enrich its network of destinations and to collaborate with other leading companies in the sector to offer its customers a wide choice of destinations that can be reached with the latest generation of aircraft.“.
Andrea Tucci, Vice President of Aerospace Business Development SEA, mentioned:
“We are very pleased to welcome this new partnership between Neos and easyJet, two of our main customers based in Milan Malpensa. For SEA, this agreement has a double meaning confirming the airport’s role as a connection hub for traffic flows in southern Italy for overseas routes and opening up new opportunities for the development of the traffic thanks to the dynamism and initiative of our partners who, with this partnership, integrate their respective networks and develop interesting commercial synergies“.
This is currently a first trial phase designed specifically for a small number of routes to validate and improve the integration and flow exchange processes between the easyJet and Neos systems, a necessary step to further improve the collaboration between the two airlines.
Initially, passengers will be able to travel to New York JFK from Naples, Catania and Palermo and Santo Domingo La Romana from Naples and Catania with a single ticket and a convenient stopover at Milan Malpensa. However, the aim is to further extend the collaboration to other routes and destinations.
The package will be available at all travel agencies through Alpitour’s B2B and B2C sales portals, the Neos website and Neos certified agencies, both in Italy and in the two overseas countries.
