As Official Global Carriers of Expo Milano 2015, Alitalia and Etihad Airways will support the event’s special ‘Made of Italians’ programme by offering exclusive discounts to Italian expatriates who are travelling to Italy for Expo.

The airlines will offer people who enroll in the ‘Made of Italians’ programme a 15 per cent discount on return airfares to Italy from a number of countries worldwide, including Australia, Argentina, Brazil, Bahrain, China, India, Japan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and the UAE.

To take advantage of the promotion, which is available until 31 October 2015, eligible travellers should simply enroll in the ‘Made of Italians’ programme through the madeofitalians.expo2015.org website and purchase a ticket for Expo Milano 2015. They will then receive a discount code to book flights on either alitalia.com or etihad.com for travel between May and November 2015, subject to terms and conditions.

In addition, subscribers to the ‘Made of Italians’ programme can benefit from a 15 per cent discount on flights within Alitalia’s domestic network between 1 May and 30 November, allowing them to visit other parts of the country during their visit.

Premium cabin passengers of Alitalia and Etihad Airways, including top tier members of the MilleMiglia and Etihad Guest loyalty programs, will also enjoy access to the exclusive VIP Lounge on the second floor of the joint Alitalia and Etihad Airways Expo Pavilion in Milan.
