After its successful launch in Palermo at the beginning of the month, Welcome carries on its growth with its launch in Catania, its 8th destination in Italy.

Founded in the 8th century BC, Catania is Italy’s first economic and industrial hub and the second-largest city in Sicily. The ancient town brings in just under 1 million visitors yearly and has seen a 210% growth between 2021 and 2022. 

And from today, travellers can book their premium Catania transfer service connecting them to Catania city centre or to any major surrounding cities, such as Palermo, Valletta or Gozo. Welcome Pickups provides high-end transfer services between Catania airport and local hotels and holiday rentals, with modern air-conditioned vehicles, ​​local, hand-picked, English-speaking drivers, and all at a fixed competitive price.

Furthermore, Welcome builds partnerships with local businesses such as hotels, vacation rentals and travel agents, providing them with tools to automate their transfer arrangements, thus, personalising their visits while generating extra revenue.
