Spotting Opportunities from Air Italy's Collapse

Posted on Tuesday, February 11, 2020 by Nick Benson

Air Italy's EI-GGR, an A330-200, arriving at MIA in February, 2019.

Air Italy has announced they're ceasing operations on February 25. No additional flights will be operated with Air Italy equipment, and the schedule for the next two weeks will be operated by other aircraft - if you haven't already documented Air Italy metal in the United States, it looks like it's too late.

In JetTip's coverage area in the US and Canada, Air Italy operated a pair of flights with A330-200s:

  • 901/902, MXP-JFK-MXP, daily, arriving at JFK at 2:45 PM, departing at 4:45 PM.
  • 969/970, MXP-MIA-MXP, daily expect Tuesday, arriving at MIA at 3:05 PM, departing at 5:20 PM.

As such, the last Air Italy flight to JFK will be on Tuesday, February 25; the last to MIA will be on Monday, February 24.

Edit: per sleuthing from FlightRadar24, it appears Wamos will be operating a few of their A330-200s for Air Italy. The following tails are heading in or out of MXP today:

  • EC-MJS
  • EC-MNY
  • EC-MTT
  • EC-NCK

In the last month, Wamos operated a pair of flights to JFK on behalf of Norwegian; they haven't made recent visits to MIA.
