Press seats on Official Flights


Press seats on Official Flights

In an effort to encourage a broad range of foreign policy coverage, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation assures all the members of the Italian press travelling abroad to cover the Minister, Deputy Ministers or Secretaries of State and arranging for their own means of transportation, all possible assistance through its diplomatic-consular network, particularly with regard to accreditation and participation in joint press conferences or meetings with the national press.

When seats are available on official flights (reserved for the authorities of the Republic), it is customary to offer them as a simple courtesy to members of the press intending to follow the Foreign Minister abroad.

In its choice of members of the press, the criteria used by Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation are dictated by the need to ensure media diversification (news agencies, radio-TV, print press) and press organ alternation, in consideration also of national scale distribution and listener share. The limitations associated with eventual difficulties in reaching mission sites, complexities regarding internal flight schedules (e.g. the need to use military aircraft), the time available for the press and the eventual presence of correspondents on-site.
