Alitalia is currently having a 25% fare sale on their site, now through October 26,2012. It’s valid for travel between November 5, 2012 and March 27, 2013, but excludes holiday travel from December 20, 2012 and January 6, 2013. The promo code is SPECIAL, and the best results I have found is to search on the regular Alitalia USA site, as when booking through the promo code site it doesn’t seem to be working. But, once you find the flights you want, then on the final booking page there is a box for an E-Coupon and enter SPECIAL, and it will reprice your flights with the 25% discount.

Alitalia is offering a 25% discount on all their flights.

Alitalia is a member of the SkyTeam alliance, so you can credit all of your flights to Delta, if you are looking to rack up some extra Medallion Qualifying Miles as well. As a reminder, all Alitalia fares earn at the following ratios:
Sample Fares:

Normally New York (JFK)-Rome (FCO) is around $900 on Alitalia.

JFK-FCO for 928.30.

Taking 25% off this fare, brings this fare down to only $696 for economy class.

However, with the promo code of 25%, it brings it down to under $700.

It’s pretty typical to see cheap Business Class fares over Thanksgiving, and Alitalia is no exception. Business Class from New York (JFK)- Rome (FCO) is running about $2400.

JFK-FCO over Thanksgiving in Business Class is around $2400.

Since the 25% off also applies to Business Class fares, this brings the price down to $1819-which is a great deal!

However, using the 25% off code, Business Class comes down to $1800 over Thanksgiving.

This sale isn’t just limited to Alitalia’s non-stop flights, so anywhere in Europe that Alitalia flies is fair game. You can head over to one of my favorite countries in Europe, Spain, for only $470 bucks from New York.

Madrid is one of my favorite cities, and can be had for under $500 from JFK with this sale.

Not the best fares I’ve ever seen, but pretty darn good. Feel free to share your experiences getting fares as low as possible- and remember to book by October 26, 2012!

    Folks, via the Japanese Alitalia site you can apply coupon code PROMOJP for a JPY25000 discount (USD315) This works ON ALL FLIGHTS. Any flight under USD315 can be booked for free, more expensive ones have the $315 discount!

    I too am having an impossible time booking any flights from LAX or SFO to Rome via Alitalia’s web site…

  • John

    They don’t have flights from SFO or LAX at all

  • Unruely

    I used the Japanese site to book JFK-FCO for a long Presidents’ Day weekend for about $570. Worked out to a 35% discount. If booking a business class ticket, the 25% discount is the better deal.

    BTW I have an eticket# but I don’t think the ticket was issued yet.

    On just choose Japan as the country on the top right corner.

    About earning SkyMiles …. I booked my flight to Madrid for $470 using the SPECIAL code, but I can’t find the fare class on my itinerary. How can I be sure that the $470 fare is not excluded from SkyMiles earning. As you note, the earning ratio chart states “if class is not listed no miles are earned.”

  • kristie

    I called Delta’s PM line to verify which fare class I had, I’d recommend doing the same. Alitalia is extremely unaware of fare classes, miles,etc.
