How To Reach Reggio Calabria
The Italian national operator Alitalia announced that per 27 March, 2017 they will stop all flight operations from Reggio Calabria to Rome Fiumicino, Milan Linate and Turin airports. As Alitalia "remains available to discuss with the relevant authorities any new scenario and measures to be implemented immediately in order to restore sustainable services to and from Reggio Calabria airport”,we suggest, that all participants should delay booking flights to Reggio Calabria.
The second-closest airport (126 km from Reggio Calabria) is Lamezia Terme International Airport. Besides Alitalia, many other airlines operate with both domestic and foreign connections at this airport. Alitalia is flying 4 times a day from Rome to Lamezia.

The shuttle service is free of charge for ARES participants and companions, a pre-booking is needed. A detailed time table will follow soon.
