ALITALIA CONFIRMS FLIGHT SCHEDULE BETWEEN MILAN BERGAMO AND ROME FIUMICINO AIRPORTS

Alitalia’s return to operation in Milan Bergamo Airport, with the scheduled connection with
Fiumicino, continues to see a high load factor on all four daily return flights, which have been active since 27 July. This is a positive trend that, based on bookings, is predicted to continue in the upcoming months during Milan Linate’s closure due to works.
Faced with this success and the increase in demand from passengers, of whom many are
on intercontinental flights in transit from Fiumicino, Alitalia has decided to confirm the route
between Milan Bergamo and Rome Fiumicino with three daily return flights, including in the 2019-2020 winter schedule, starting from 27 October, and in the 2020 summer schedule as of 29 March.
“We are pleased with the decision made by Alitalia to continue to put its trust in our airport
and in their clientele - stated Emilio Bellingardi, Director General of SACBO - The response from the market, especially in relation to the needs of business travellers, has been exceedingly positive. We are convinced that passengers, drawn to the airport’s accessibility, convenience and the level of its services, will increasingly appreciate Alitalia’s flights from and to Milan Bergamo Airport. The continuity of the flights is a testament to the ability to maintain a long-term vision and allows for a consolidation of this resurrected relationship between Alitalia and the land surrounding Milan Bergamo Airport.”

PERSONALE OPERATIVO BIS DEL GRUPPO SACBO E' PLASTIC FREE

BGY International Services, la società di handling del Gruppo SACBO, ha messo in atto un programma radicale di adesione all’obiettivo “plastic free” nelle aree operative airside che coinvolge interamente il personale composto da agenti di rampa, addetti ai mezzi e alle operazioni di piazzale e assistenza agli aeromobili.
Il processo di eliminazione delle bottiglie di plastica, iniziato lo scorso anno con l’installazione di due erogatori d’acqua (a temperatura ambiente e refrigerata) nelle due salette break airside a disposizione del personale, è stato implementato con la distribuzione di 200 borracce in alluminio in dotazione a ciascuno dei dipendenti BIS.
BIS prevede di incrementare ulteriormente i punti di erogazione di acqua nelle aree operative e nei propri uffici per permettere a tutti gli oltre 300 dipendenti di optare per questa scelta di sostenibilità.

MILAN BERGAMO AIRPORT SEES THE ACTIVATION OF THE FIRST 6 E-GATES

Milan Bergamo Airport has opened the first six e-gates, the passenger passport and identification electronic control gates positioned in the non-Schengen arrivals area and aimed at facilitating the flow of incoming passengers.

The e-gates provide an automated border control system for passengers with electronic passports and citizenship in one of the countries of the European Union, European Economic Area or Switzerland, and who are of more than 14 years of age. On disembarking and arriving in the non-Schengen arrivals area, passengers go to one of the six gates and position their passport on the dedicated reader, which checks their biometric data. Following the initial control, which takes just a few seconds, they are granted access through the turnstiles for a check of their facial data before being allowed to enter the Schengen area. A fast and secure procedure that reduces waiting times to a minimum and facilitates the processing of arriving passengers.
