Officials of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority have lobbied in the past few years to get non-stop or one-stop service to Italy.

For the time being, their hard work has resulted in disappointment.

Alitalia, Italy's major international carrier, is scheduled to fly between Rome and Miami starting today. No stop is planned for Orlando. The airline has a marketing agreement with USAir, however, to transport passengers to more than 40 U.S. cities, including Orlando.

Earlier this year, authority officials were hoping that Alitalia would add Orlando as another destination after entering the United States through Miami or Atlanta. Alitalia, which also serves Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles and New York, was given permission to fly to Miami.

The new flights to Rome will depart Miami Monday, Thursday and Saturday evenings.

"We haven't given up yet," said Carolyn Fennell, spokeswoman for the authority. "We think there's a market for Orlando-Italy service. It may not happen immediately, but we'll continue to work on it."
