Alitalia to mark its return to San Francisco

Flights to resume between Rome and the Golden Gate City after 19-year hiatus

Alitalia is relaunching flights to San Francisco after a 19-year hiatus. Services to the City by the Bay will start on 1 June 2020 from Alitalia’s homeport of Rome Fiumicino.

The Italian carrier will offer a thrice-weekly service between the cities, utilising Boeing 777-200 aircraft which are configured with 30 seats in Magnifica Business class, 24 in Premium Economy and 239 in Economy.

“We are thrilled to welcome Alitalia back to SFO,” said San Francisco Airport Director Ivar C. Satero. “We are proud to be the international gateway airport of choice in the Bay Area, and this new service offers our customers first-ever nonstop access from SFO to Rome.”

Alitalia last flew to San Francisco in October 2001 out of Milan, but axed the route in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks.

Flights schedules are as follows:

ROUTE DEPARTURE (Local time) ARRIVAL (Local time) FREQUENCY
San Francisco – Rome 15:15 12:15* Monday, Thursday and Saturday
Rome – San Francisco 09:15 13:15 Monday, Thursday and Saturday
