Alitalia on Wednesday could announce partnerships with both
Delta and EasyJet to bring Alitalia out of bankruptcy, according to Italian
newspaper Corriere della Sera.
The deal would have Alitalia maintain operational centers in
Rome and Milan, Delta manage long-haul service out of Rome and EasyJet lead
short- and medium-haul service from Milan, the Italian newspaper reported.
Italian commissioners last year approved a purchase offer from Italian rail
company Ferrovie dello Stato that is contingent on Alitalia finding an airline
partner to help with the turnaround.
