DALLAS – La Compagnie (BO) has launched a new service connecting New York’s Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) and Milan Malpensa Airport (MXP). The all-business-class airline started flying from New York to Paris and Nice in 2014 and 2019, respectively.
The new service launched today will operate five times a week, from Thursday through Monday, departing at 9:40 pm from EWR and landing at midday the next day at MXP.
Passengers can expect lounge and priority access, as with all BO flights, for a seamless pre-flight experience. The new A321neo aircraft features 76 full-flat-bed seats, entertainment options, and free Wi-Fi.
The onboard experience will include amenity packs with Comfort Zone products, a Davines skincare brand with effective and sustainable formulae created in Italy using renewable energy, as well as specialized collaborations that showcase Italian culture.
The boutique airline will also introduce a new Italian-infused food and beverage program, inspired by local products and curated by Michelin-starred chefs such as Isabella Potì and Floriano Pellegrino of restaurant Bros in Lecce, and the Vicenza-based Lorenzo Cogo of El Coq, and DAMA restaurant in Venice.
According to travelagentcentral.com, wine pairings with selected labels from Italian organic wineries will also be available.
La Compagnie is a French boutique airline founded in 2013 as DreamJet by Frantz Yvelin and based at Orly Airport (ORY) in Paris, with headquarters in Le Bourget in the Paris metropolitan area.
