Alitalia (2): easyJet confirms that it has submitted an offer
"Interest in a renovated carrier"
In waiting of the proposal of Ferrovie dello Stato for Alitalia to be announced, the low-cost carrier easyJet has confirmed that it has submitted a bid in consortium with the US Delta. This was announced by the British company, which reiterated "the interest in a restructured Alitalia, and the offer reflects both the terms of the sales process and is consistent with the strategy of easyJet in Italy". But the contents of the envelope delivered to the three extraordinary commissioners remain unknown, being "subject to confidentiality constraints". It remains to be seen what will be the offer of Ferrovie dello Stato and which of the two will be deemed the best to start a real negotiation, unless you decide to find a solution that includes the victory of FS and the subsequent entry of easyJet. Although the British company would primarily like a restructured company (therefore also with layoffs) and secondly to focus on the Milan-Malpensa airport -its Italian hub-; two issues that go against what was expressed on several occasions by the representatives of the current government.
