Do you need to request an ITA Volare match?

There are many questions and answers about the ITA Volare program.

It is not clear how status will be transferred to the ITA Volare program.

I don't even know what ITA Volares elite tiers look like, or what the benefits are.

Volare frequently flyer accounts may not immediately issue a membership number. It is odd that your membership number is not required to request a status match. I wonder if the program has considered this or if information will be matched on the basis of names, email addresses, etc.

SkyTeam does not yet consider ITA a member airline, but those behind the airline claim that ITA will join them.

It's worth it to check your ITA Volare match status. It's not clear if it will help you fly ITA or if you are flying a partner airline. Or maybe it will just be cool to be an ITA Volare elite Member.

Bottom line

Italy's new national airline offers a status match campaign to elite members of other frequent flyer programs. Although there are many questions, this seems like a fun and easy way to get a status match.
