Almost a one month after its launch, Routes checks in on the status of the Italian carrier's network.

It has been almost one month since ITA Airways launched on 15 Oct., becoming the new Italian flag-carrier replacing Alitalia.

Led by president Alfredo Altavilla (pictured), ITA is building up its network to operate 61 services to 45 destinations. By 2025 this will have expanded to 89 services to 74 destinations.

Its bases in Rome Fiumicino (FCO) and Milan Linate (LIN) together account for 57.1% of its capacity at 295,712 and 269,748 departure seats respectively.
