Emirates has launched its fourth Italian gateway today, following the arrival of the airline’s Boeing 777-300ER in Bologna.
As the capital of the Emilia Romagna region, Bologna has one of the world’s largest and most well-preserved medieval historical centres and is rich in art, culture and commerce. Located in northern Italy Bologna is an excellent stepping off point for access to Florence, Pisa and the stunning vistas of Tuscany.
Highlighting the airline’s connectivity with the East, passengers on today’s inaugural flight travelled through to Bologna from a diverse mix of destinations including; Dubai, Sydney, Kuala Lumpur, Shanghai and Taipei.
As one of the most industrialised cities in Italy access to the airline’s network of more than 50 destinations in the Far East, Middle East and West Asia is expected to further foster business opportunities across the region.
