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.
Founded in 2002, Neos boasts one of the

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

portfolio of routes, continuing the growth path that in 2019 led
it to carry two million passengers with a turnover of $563

delighted to have been appointed as GSA by Neos Airlines in the

very popular for the 2021 travel season!”
