Ancona, 22 May 2020
More Frecce and InterCity trains shall travel the Adriatic line from 3 June.
Two more Frecciargento trains will operate: the FA 8802 departing from Ancona at 5:20 am arrives in Milan at 9:15 am whilst the FA 8825 departing from the city of Madonnina at 6:50 pm gets to Ancona at 10:39 pm.
There will then be four Frecciabianca trains: FB 8803 Milan (7:35 am) – Bari (3:27 pm), FB 8815 Venice (2:52 pm) – Lecce (11:45 am), FB 8816 Lecce (7:06 am) – Venice (4:08 pm) and FB 8830 Bari (4:30 pm) – Milan (12:30 am).
These six Frecce services are in addition to the four Frecciabianca already circulating on the Adriatic line, where four more InterCity trains will also recommence circulation as of 3 June, thus bringing the total number to six.
Trenitalia (Gruppo FS Italiane) thus increases the number of trains available from the second step of Phase 2 of the health emergency to have commenced as of May 18.
The Trenitalia offering - which from early June includes 74 Frecce and 48 InterCity trains nationally, along the main routes of the country - increases with a number of connections congruous with the demand for mobility throughout this period, taking into account the 50% seat availability due to the “chequerboard” reservation system that guarantees the respect of social distancing.
As of today, tickets for all the new offers for medium- and long-distance trains are available through Trenitalia’s sales systems, with the priority being to safeguard people’s health in the utmost respect of the regulations in force.
Passengers can thus start to arrange their train travel not only for business purposes but also for leisure and tourism in the coming summer season, being essential for reviving national and local tourism, especially in small- and medium-sized towns with high cultural and landscape appeal.
