On Monday (June 21, 2021), Air Dolomiti, the Italian Airline of the Lufthansa Group, announced the completion of their inaugural flight between Munich and Luigi Ridolfi Airport in Forlì, Italy. The flight took off from Munich at 07:50 and arrived on schedule in Forlì at 09:00. Upon arrival, the Embraer E195 was welcomed by a traditional water cannon salute from the ARFF (Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting) team at Luigi Ridolfi Airport.

In today’s announcement, Air Dolomiti’s President & CEO, Joerg Eberhart, said,
“The departure of flights from Forlì to the Munich hub is another step towards the return to normal operations that expands our offer and guarantee travelers and increasingly more composed and efficient range of alternatives. We are taking great strides towards resuming our activities and collaborations, hopefully now without further setbacks, to make it possible to reach not only Bavaria, but also all the destinations envisaged by the many connections offered by Lufthansa.”

F.A. s.r.l. would like to thank Air Dolomiti for the trust that they have shown in our airport – allowing us to connect the whole of Romagna to the world through the Munich hub. Romagna and Bavaria are two regions that have always been close to each other from a tourist point of view and this connection will further enrich the opportunities for commercial and cultural exchange.”
