Alitalia, the national airline of Italy, has expanded its international network, introducing five weekly flights between its hub in Rome and Los Angeles.

This nonstop Boeing 777service will open a new range of options for travel to Europe via the US, where Australian's can join Alitalia in Los Angeles.

Once in Europe, Alitalia passengers can take advantage of the airline's 2008 European Airpass, enabling them to access Italy and Europe's most sought after destinations with convenience and flexibility.

Starting at EUR144 net (approximately AUD233) plus taxes for one coupon, up to five coupons can be purchased from just EUR483 ($792), with taxes varying depending on destinations and flights.

The Airpass enables passengers to travel to up to five of 24 destinations in Italy and 40 European destinations on the Alitalia network.

Alitalia's hub at Rome Fiumicino Airport is centrally located for travel throughout Europe and the Mediterranean, both increasingly popular travel destinations for Australians.

Beyond Italy, passengers can fly as far west as Lisbon in Portugal, south to Malta, north to Copenhagen and east to Poland or Romania.

The Airpass is available for sale until 31 October 2008, for travel until further notice.

Alitalia offers 12 weekly flights from Australia to Rome via Kuala Lumpur, in codeshare with Malaysian Airlines. Passengers can then access 83 worldwide destinations throughout Europe, North and West Africa, the Middle East and North and South America.

In Australia, Alitalia is represented by World Aviation Systems, a Stella Travel Company. For more information or for bookings please visit
