Air Italy's Chief Operating Officer Rossen Dimitrov said the airline is to enter into an interline agreement with full-service carrier Vistara.
Earlier, the official had erroneously mentioned it was to enter into a codeshare arrangement.
An interline agreement refers to a pact to issue and accept tickets for flights that are operated by the partner airline.
"The launch of our India-Italy sector represents another major step forward for Air Italy and reinforces our commitment to our network expansion plans in Asia," Dimitrov said at a press briefing here.
He noted that India is a great market and there are "very high expectations" as there is an opportunity to grow.
Delhi is the fourth intercontinental route for Air Italy this year after flights to New York, Miami and Bangkok.
Air Italy is 51 per cent owned by AQA Holding and the remaining 49 per cent is with Qatar Airways.
