The airline will accompany the Holy Father also for return in Italy next March 29. The departure from Havana is expected at 5:00pm and the arrival in Rome-Ciampino at 10:15am.

The papal delegation and journalists are present onboard. The crew is composed by three pilots and nine flight assistants, chosen for their professionalism and effort during their career; in addition also an operating team dedicated to the special flights by airline is present.

The collaboration, also with this travel, continues between the Holy See and Alitalia that in the last years has accompanied the Pope in Africa (Cameroon, Angola and Benin), Holy Land, Prague, Malta, Lisbon, Cyprus, UK (Edinburgh and London), Santiago de Compostela, Zagreb, Madrid and Berlin.

Alitalia is proud to be the airline chosen by the Holy See for Pope’s apostolic journeys abroad and to offer the reliability and quality of its own services to the papal delegation. (Avionews)
