(10 May 2021) Neos Airlines has appointed APG as its GSA in the USA.
Through its sales offices across the US, APG will provide a wide-range of sales and marketing services for Neos Airlines as well as full customer and travel agent support.
Neos, Italy’s second largest Italian airline has received official approval from the US Department of Transportation to operate scheduled passenger flights to and from the United States.
The twice-weekly flights will begin on 27 June, connecting New York with Milan Malpensa Airport in northern Italy.
“The launch of Milan-New York service is a milestone for us,” said Carlo Stradiotti, CEO of Neos, “An opportunity for business growth and to expand connections between Italy and the USA. With this first American route, we will offer a new travel experience to the U.S. traveler, based on Italian style, wellness, and the most advanced aircraft. In 2022, we plan to increase New York flights, and to add additional U.S. gateways.”
Founded in 2002, Neos boasts one of the youngest airline fleets in Europe: including six Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.
The airline operates scheduled services with more than 50 routes throughout Italy, as well as to Africa, the Caribbean, China, Egypt, Greece, Iceland, Israel, Jordan, Maldives, Mexico, Oman, Spain and Thailand.
The approval of the US Department of Transportation will allow Neos to expand its portfolio of routes, continuing the growth path that in 2019 led it to carry two million passengers with a turnover of $563 million.
Julianna Hill, CEO of APG USA, said, “We are delighted to have been appointed as GSA by Neos Airlines in the US. We are also looking forward to introducing Neos’ modern and upbeat brand to the US and interest from the US travel trade has already been exceptional. With traditional Italian hospitality and ultra-modern Boeing 787 Dreamliners, Neos will certainly prove very popular for the 2021 travel season!”
APG recently assisted Neos to join ARC in the USA allowing all US travel agents to book and ticket the new flights.
