Italian CAA Defined New Rules for travelling


Following the new amendment of Ente Nazionale Aviazione Civile (ENAC), the Italian CAA, all AZ’s passenger flights will be operated using the new method of passenger spacing.

The measure provides that the spacing of the passengers (1,0 meter or 40 inches) on board is no longer measured from one armrest to the other but from the center of the seat to the other.
