(WASHINGTON, D.C. – July 3, 2023) The National Italian American Foundation (NIAF) is pleased to announce its new partnership with ITA Airways, Italy’s flagship carrier. This collaboration aims to provide NIAF members with exclusive discounts when traveling between the United States and Italy. Effective today, the two dedicated offers currently include a flash promotion and an ongoing basic offer.

To kickstart this alliance, ITA Airways is launching a flash promotion exclusively for NIAF members and their companions. Members have access to a 20% discount on business class bookings (excluding surcharges and taxes) for select routes. The routes applicable to this dedicated offer encompass flights connecting New York and Rome, New York and Milan, as well as Boston and Rome. The sale period will last for three weeks from the activation and travel period will end on August 31, 2023.

In addition to the exclusive offer mentioned above, NIAF members and their companions will also receive an ongoing 10% reduction on fares (excluding surcharges and taxes) for all routes within ITA Airways’ network connecting the United States and Italy, as well as the entire Italian domestic network (excluding Sardinia). This discount will be available for bookings made until December 31, 2023, with a travel period extending until the same date and applicable to all classes: economy, superior, and business.

Current NIAF members can immediately unlock the offers only by logging into their NIAF account at and clicking the login button in the top right corner to access the ITA Airways dedicated landing page. To view the discount, it is necessary to:

“By entering into this partnership with ITA Airways, we are delighted to offer our members exclusive discounts when traveling to Italy,” said Robert Allegrini, NIAF President. “We believe this collaboration will further enhance the connection between Italy and the United States and will make it more economical for our members to experience Italy firsthand,” added Allegrini.

“The United States are a very strategic market for ITA Airways, and the second after Italy, our domestic market. The development of the intercontinental network is one of the key pillars of our strategy. A strategy that will be consolidated thanks to the opening of new routes to the United States this summer – to Washington launched on June 2 and San Francisco opening July 1 said Massimo Allegri, ITA Airways Regional Manager Americas. “This partnership with NIAF will ensure a strategic contribution to the promotion of economic relations and cooperation between Italy and the United States.
