Alitalia has resumed connecting Rome and Boston today. The first Alitalia flight from Fiumicino to Boston’s Logan airport departed at 10:20 this morning. The connection with the city of Massachusetts is added to that with New York, restored at the beginning of June, and is made three times a week (from Italy every Monday, Thursday and Saturday, from the United States every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday) .
The flight will land in Boston at 1:40 pm (local). From the American city, the departure of the Alitalia plane to Rome is scheduled at 20:40 local (Sunday at 17:40 local) with arrival in Fiumicino at 10:40 the following morning (Monday morning at 7:40).
In compliance with current legal provisions, all Alitalia aircraft are sanitized every day with products with high sanitizing power and, thanks to Hepa filters and vertical circulation, the air on board is not only renewed every three minutes, but is pure at 99.7%, as in a sterile room. All passengers are then required to hand in a self-certification before boarding, stating that they have not had close contact with people with Covid-19 disease. In addition, passengers must wear protective masks to be worn compulsorily from their arrival at the airport and during the flight, taking into account that they carry an adequate number for the duration of the flight, since it is necessary to replace the mask with a new one every 4 hours of flight.
