The personal data that will be provided by Members upon enrollment in the program must be correct and truthful in every aspect. Each individual will be associated with a single profile for the purposes of participating in the program and, as a result, each Member may have only one points portfolio.
The program is divided into two phases (Phase I from 15 October 2021 until 28 February 2022; Phase II from 1 March 2022 until the end date of the program), as better described below
Each Member can withdraw from the program at any time and without incurring any cost, using the appropriate section of the site www.itaspa.com or via the "ITA" app. Deleting the profile will take effect immediately and unused points will be lost.
ITA reserves the right to carry out the appropriate checks on compliance with these Regulations and to deny participation and/or exclude Members from the program and/or cancel any points and/or Awards requested, to subjects who do not meet the requirements set out in the Regulations or in the case of participations made , according to the unquestionable judgment of ITA or of third parties appointed by the same, not respecting the conditions provided for by the Regulation or with means, methods and/or tools that, at its sole discretion, are considered suspicious, fraudulent or in violation of the normal course of the initiative.
Members who join the Program by 15 November 2021 will be entitled to a welcome bonus of 10,000 Points ("Welcome Bonus") to be used within the Program once the usage features are active (Phase II). In particular, the welcome bonus will be credited to the Member's Points balance by 28 February 2022 provided that the Member has purchased a return flight or two one-way flights to be made by 31 December 2021.
These Points can be used starting from 1 March 2022 above (see Phase II, paragraph b)).
During Phase I, each Member will be able to view the history of the ITA flights purchased that will entitle the accumulation of Points starting from 28 February 2022 (see Phase II, paragraph a)).
Starting from 28 February 2022, the Member will receive the Volare Code corresponding to their “Volare” account. Using the Volare Code in their reserved area, the Member can:
- access their points portfolio;
receive in real time the points accrued as a result of each flight made by the Member and each purchase that gives the right to accumulate points (see Phase II, paragraph a));
receive the credit of the points accrued for ITA flights carried out from 15 October 2021 to 28 February 2022 (previously only tracked in the Member's personal area).
a) Accumulation of points
Each Member will have access to a personal account on which the points to which they are entitled will be accumulated and credited. Points will be credited automatically in each of the circumstances listed below, it being understood that it remains the responsibility of the Member to provide their Volare Code at the time of purchase of the goods/services promoted by ITA:
flights actually purchased and operated by the same subject with ITA. It is understood that flights purchased but not performed (even after cancellation and without prejudice to the application of the policy of ITA regarding the possible recognition of related refunds) do not give the right to accumulate points;
purchase and use of goods and/or services provided by ITA (boutique on board);
purchase of ancillary services available for a fee on ITA flights;
further methods of earning points communicated from time to time by ITA.
The amount of points accumulated is calculated on the basis of the customer's expense (revenue-based model, 1 euro = 1 Point). The accrual of points by virtue of the purchase of airline tickets may also take place based on the type of purchase made (class, destination, etc.), with the possibility of receiving bonus points in a manner that will be communicated by ITA from time to time.
b) Use of points
Starting from 1 March 2022, Members will have the opportunity to use the points accrued according to the criteria indicated in paragraph a) to request the following Awards:
purchase of ITA air tickets;
purchase of ITA ancillary services (lounge, upgrade of class, etc.);
purchase of ITA discount coupons.
The points will be used through a dedicated section of the site www.itaspa.com, through the ITA application, as well as in the manner defined and communicated from time to time by ITA. In particular, before concluding each purchase, the interested Member must enter his/her Volare Code and the transaction will take place automatically by deducting an amount equivalent to the price of the good/service purchased from the points balance. In the event that the Member's points balance is not sufficient to cover the full price of the good/service he/she intends to purchase, the price of the good/service will in any case be reduced by the amount of the points used. Upon completion of the transaction involving the use of the accumulated points for the purpose of purchasing goods and/or services offered by ITA, the Member will receive a personal communication confirming the use of the relevant points and updating the available points balance.
It is understood that the points and/or Awards that will be awarded to Members will not give any right to request their conversion into cash. The Member will not be able to accumulate additional points as a result of the award and use of an Award that was obtained by using the accumulatedpoints, unless otherwise specified and communicated to Members by ITA
