ANCONA – London, Paris, Brussels, Vienna, Düsseldorf are just some of the many destinations at Ancona airport that make you dream. And for the new connections departing from October 1st there are promotional trips available for many purses. For one way, Aeroitalia makes 5 thousand seats available at 49.99 euros for the territorially continuous routes Milan, Naples and Rome and from 59.99 euros for Barcelona, ​​Bucharest and Vienna. A commercial operation, certainly, but which should also be read as recognition of the new strategic value of the Marche airport.

Interconnected network

The Raffaello Sanzio is no longer framed only as an access portal to many horizons or as an indispensable emblem of contemporary mobility, but as a high-speed connection capable of generating that interconnected network that changes the role and perspectives of our region. An essential and fruitful asset for the social and economic development of the Marche and it succeeds too. Just look at the traffic data from last July. The balance of air traffic linked to the summer season is not yet available. But those registered by “Aeroporti 30”, the association which aims, among other things, to enhance airport companies and to promote, in a dynamic and proactive way, their sustainable, intermodal, innovative and digital development.

This is because despite the general decline in tourists in Italy and the Marche region, estimated between 20 and 30%, the Falconara airport recorded 59,839 passengers, i.e. only a 7% decrease compared to 2022. Indeed, while the number of passengers (18,389 people) to and from Italian airports by 15.3%, international ones increased by 7.5%. That is, almost 41 thousand people, exactly 40,958, passed through Sanzio in July.

International flights

Which means that, since January 2023, passengers coming from Italian airports have been a total of 73,668 (-3.5%) and those from international airports have been 197,742 (+19.9%) of which 91,489 (+14.9 %) from the European Union including Switzerland. And it is precisely this opportunity that the Aeroitalia company led by CEO Gaetano Intrieri has seized. Founded two years ago, it has extended its network starting from Forlì, to Bergamo, Florence, Rome Fiumicino, Sardinia and Sicily and today Ancona by winning the tender financed by the government and the Marche Region for the routes from Ancona to Milan Linate, Naples and Rome Fiumicino under the regime of territorial continuity. And again in Ancona it has launched three other international routes and, by the end of the year, it is working with Atim and the Region in order to guarantee Amsterdam.

«The Adriatic area – explains CEO Intrieri – is not very connected and therefore we see in the Ancona port the possibility of creating a strategic hub in this area». On the choice to move the departure dates of the new flights abroad to October 1st he replies: «An organized communication campaign on the Marche was needed which took a little more time». However, the trend predicts that in Ancona, traffic, stimulated by the pricing policies practiced by the companies, should increase in autumn.

For example, on Wednesday 27 September with Ryanair you can go to London for 21.45 euros, to Catania for 20.65 euros; with Albawings in Tirana for €57.38 and with Wizzair for €19.99 the next day. Or again with Ryanair you can stop in Brussels on 5 October for €16, on 30 September in Düsseldorf for 27.43 euros and on 10 October in Krakow for 38.67 euros.
