Italy's Eurofly to start direct flights to India

New Delhi: Italian airline Eurofly will start the first direct commercial flights between Rome and New Delhi in 2007 to tap demand from a burgeoning class of globetrotting Indians, company officials said on Tuesday.
The company will fly 282-seater Airbus A320s between the two capitals three times a week each way from January 15, with tickets selling from 20,000 rupees ($450) during the launch period, Executive Vice President Armando Brunini told reporters.
The company estimated about 150,000 people fly between the two countries annually, about two-thirds of them being Italians.
But the number of Indian tourists visiting Italy was growing by 30 percent annually, Eurofly said, and the introduction of direct flights was expected to add another 10 percentage points to that figure.
