Alitalia: scheduled appointments in crisis
It is essential to clarify before a new Government
By the end of August, representatives of Delta Airlines, Ferrovie dello Stato (Italian State Railways), Atlantia and the Italian Treasury should meet in Atlanta to discuss the rescue of the Alitalia airline in Atlanta, headquarters of the American carrier.
The end of the Government also puts in crisis the agenda of appointments of the giants engaged in relaunching the Italian society in serious danger that awaits by September 15 an offer from the consortium (see AVIONEWS) and that must face the thorny problem of the redundancies of about 2000 employees, the restructuring of services, the serious liquidity problems in the absence of a buyer: to date of August 26 has not been set the date of the transfer yet.
It is therefore feared that the meeting will be postponed, which instead turns out to be crucial for the fate of the carrier and it is fundamental to be able to shed light even before a new Government, considering that the Alitalia theme is a factor of division between the Italian political parties PD and M5S.
