The first charter flight from Italy to China since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has been confirmed for July 12, according to a statement released by the China-Italy Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday. 

According to the statement, the flight was arranged by the China-Italy Chamber of Commerce, together with the Italian Embassy to China. It is scheduled to take off from Milan in Italy to Nanjing in East China’s Jiangsu Province. Flights in August and September are also being planned. 

A single ticket from Milan to Nanjing in economy class is priced at 1,300 euro ($1,544). A single premium class ticket is priced at an additional 250 euro. Members of the chamber can start booking as early as June 30. Non-members will be eligible to do so from July 4. 

However, the return charter flight from Nanjing to Milan is still awaiting final authorization by the Chinese authorities, the statement said. 

The chamber also noted that all passengers will need to present documents required during the pandemic before boarding.
