Updates on the 2021 summer season from the Milan Airports

Passengers return to fly from Milan airports to seasonal destinations of summer 2021 and to some destinations that had previously been suspended due to the pandemic. Among the many news there is also the arrival of the Spanish airline Volotea which for the first time will operate from the Milan airports.

The positive news about the connections goes hand in hand with those on the softening of the measures for passengers arriving in Italy. The latest ordinance signed by the Minister of Health, Roberto Speranza, provided for the abolition of the 5-day quarantine upon arrival in Italy from May 16th for travelers from the countries of the European Union and the Schengen area, Great Britain and Israel who swabbed with negative results. Therefore, the obligation remains to show a molecular or antigenic swab with negative result upon arrival, carried out in the 48 hours preceding arrival in our country. With the same ordinance, the restrictive measures against Brazil were extended until 30 July 2021.The same ordinance also extended the experimentation of Covid tested flights, until now active on the route between the United States and Italy. The testing of Covid tested flights, in line with the ordinance, was extended to Malpensa on the route to and from the United Arab Emirates on which Emirates (Malpensa-Dubai) and Etihad (Malpensa-Abu Dhabi) operate.
