EasyJet will offer additional flights from Scotland to Rome for the Six Nations Rugby Championship in 2023.
Italy host Scotland on March 9 at the Stadio Olimpico.
Additional flights from Glasgow and Edinburgh to the Italian capital will reportedly be offered for the game The Herald.
A spokesman for easyJet said: “We are delighted to be able to offer additional flights from Edinburgh and Glasgow to Rome next March.”
“Our customers have more choice when booking a trip to the Italian capital to support Scotland at the 2024 Six Nations Championship and we look forward to welcoming them on board.”
Kate Sherry, Edinburgh Airport Chief Commercial Officer, added: “We are big fans of Scottish rugby at Edinburgh Airport so it’s great that all flights are going to Rome this weekend so the Scots can support our rugby team. “
“Let’s hope it’s the result of a great World Cup!”
It comes just days after Jet2 launched its Winter City Breaks program for 2024/25.
Three city break destinations are now on offer to Kraków, Prague and Rome, all of which depart from Glasgow Airport.
