Flights from its base at Milan Malpensa to Boston Logan and Chicago O’Hare will start in June and operate as part of a codeshare agreement with United Airlines. The two new routes will be a first for passengers travelling from Milan, with the carrier exploring the opportunity of more US services.
The Boston and Chicago routes are two of 11 announced by Air One after the airline stepped in to take over slots at Malpensa from struggling rival Alitalia. The airline has pledged 138 new services from the airport and has shorter-haul services to Brussels, Athens, Thessalonica, Bari and Lamezia Terme due to start next month.
Malpensa has been boosted by recent announcements including new flights to Malta by Volareweb and Air Berlin‘s decision to transfer 25 of its weekly flights from Bergamo Orio al Serio in June, including services to its Berlin-Tegel and Dusseldorf hubs.
