Info

"Another place we've made a real difference is Milan, where we celebrated another milestone this week: 10 years of our Malpensa base.  We've carried 50 million passengers in the last decade to and from Milan and linked the city to Europe by providing 60 routes to 20 countries and we employ more than 800 people. We recognised Milan's potential; we've invested significant amounts of resources into making it our second-largest base in Europe.

So again, we've contributed to the city and its growth. We celebrated all of this in a series of events throughout the week with press, corporate accounts, travel management companies and of course our crew during Milan Week, where we opened the #Milaneasy lounge in the heart of the events area - which I hear was absolutely amazing. You also might spot some members of our crew in our new marketing campaign.

On top of this, while in Italy, it's great news that we've announced we're extending the flight club program to Italian high value, high frequent flyers. So passengers will start receiving emails on that in the summer and inviting them to join the benefits of this program. So a big thank you to the Italian team whose one-team working has helped us show and celebrate our continued commitment in Milan."
