Alitalia chief plays down Air France-KLM merger talk

RHO, Italy, Nov 2 (Reuters) - The idea of a merger between Alitalia and Air France-KLM is not one that is backed by shareholders, Alitalia's chairman said on Tuesday, playing down an option raised by the Italian carrier's CEO.

Air France-KLM has a 25 percent stake in Alitalia, which was bought by a group of Italian investors after it went bankrupt under the weight of a heavy debtload, persistent strikes and high costs. The French carrier has long been considered likely to seek full control of the Italian airline over the long term.

Earlier on Tuesday, extracts from a book by an Italian journalist quoted Alitalia CEO Rocco Sabelli saying he planned to recommend to shareholders a merger between the two airlines.

But Alitalia chairman Roberto Colannino dismissed the idea.

"It may be a thought of Sabelli's, but it's not shared by shareholders," Colaninno told reporters.

Alitalia Chairman: Not Ruling Out Possible Merger With Air France
11 November 2010

SINGAPORE (Dow Jones)--CAI Alitalia SpA Chairman Roberto Colannino said Thursday that he isn't ruling out a possible merger of the Italian airline with Air France-KLM (AF.FR), a prospect raised by Alitalia's chief executive in comments published last week.

"In business, you can exclude nothing. It's the market that suggests to us what we have to do," Colannino told Dow Jones Newswires.

"Alitalia's No. 1 priority is to make profits. After that, we wait and see," he said.

According to extracts from a book published last week, Alitalia Chief Executive Rocco Sabelli plans to recommend to shareholders a merger with the French carrier in 2013, when Alitalia shareholders are free to sell their stakes.

Colannino, responding to Sabelli's comments, said last week that the idea of a merger "is definitely not shared by shareholders."

Air France-KLM owns 25% of Alitalia, which is unlisted.

Colannino, who is also the chairman and chief executive of Italian scooter maker Piaggio & C SpA (PIA.MI), said Alitalia's shareholders are committed to hold their stakes until 2013.

"Based only on this fact, I naturally won't be able to predict what will happen two years from now," he said, adding it was "not appropriate" to comment on what the airline might do in the future.

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, who engineered Alitalia's rescue from bankruptcy in late 2008 by a group of private investors led by Colannino, said last week that the airline needed to remain Italian.

Alitalia is expected to break even at the operating level next year, and will probably turn a profit in 2012, Colannino said.

"The market is going very well, giving good results," he said, adding that the airline plans to open new routes to Beijing and Shanghai next year.

Last month, Alitalia announced a third quarter net profit of EUR39 million, up from EUR1 million a year earlier.

Alitalia Chairman: Doesn't Exclude Anything, Not Even Air France Merger
24 November 2010

MILAN (MF-Dow Jones)--Alitalia SpA Chairman Roberto Colaninno Wednesday reiterated he did not exclude anything, not even a potential merger with Air France-KLM (AF.FR), a shareholder in the Italian airline.

Colaninno was speaking to reporters on the margins of an event at which Jet Airways (532617.BY) announced the opening of a route to New Delhi from Milan.

Alitalia Chief Executive Rocco Sabelli has said he planned to recommend to shareholders a merger with the French carrier in 2013, when Alitalia shareholders are free to sell their stakes.

Colaninno led a group of private shareholders in the takeover of Alitalia in 2008 with the help of the government.

Air France-KLM Chief executive Pierre-Henri Gourgeon said recently only that the cooperation between the two airlines has been going very well since Air France-KLM took a 25% stake In Alitalia in 2008.

Alitalia Picks Embraer Over Sukhoi To Lease Planes
18 December 2010

ROME (Dow Jones)--Alitalia Friday said it would lease 20 regional planes from Brazil's Embraer rather than Russia's Sukhoi because its preferred candidate had gotten mired in delivery problems.

Alitalia Chief Executive Rocco Sabelli said the airline had initially favored Sukhoi but delays in the development of its new Sukhoi Superjet 100 made it decide to choose Embraer instead.

"The problem is that the Superjet is still not in the air," he told reporters on the margins of an event with the airline's unions, according to MF-Dow Jones. "A flight is foreseen in Russia for January but there are even uncertainties about that date."

Alitalia will lease five E190 planes and 15 E175 planes from Embraer, he said.

"Five or six will arrive in August 2011 and the rest by mid-2012."

"We are particularly surprised by Alitalia's choice given its recent positive feedback on Superjet," a source close to Alenia Aeronautica, a partner of Sukhoi Design Bureau Co. in the SuperJet International joint venture, told Dow Jones Newswires.

"We are ready to start delivering the planes to Alitalia in summer," the source said.

Alitalia will also receive next year the new Airbus planes it had previously ordered, he added. "By 2012, the fleet will be completely new," Alitalia's Sabelli said.

Alitalia has a fleet of 147 planes.

Sabelli also said he expects Alitalia to at least halve its operating loss this year. In 2009, the loss stood at EUR274 million.

Alitalia aimed to increase capacity by 6-7% next year, most of which on international and intercontinental flights, he said.

Revenue could rise by 13-14%, he added.

The Superjet, which is still undergoing tests, is the first new passenger plane to be made in Russia since the Soviet Union's collapse in 1991.

Its developer, Superjet International, is jointly controlled by Russia's state-run Sukhoi Design Bureau and Alenia Aeronautica, a unit of Italian defense and aerospace group Finmeccanica SpA.

It submitted a bid to Alitalia in October, putting itself in competition with Embraer and Canada's Bombardier Inc.

Finmeccanica declined comment, while Embraer was not immediately available for comment.

Montreal-based Bombardier continues to be in talks with Alitalia, a company spokeswoman says.

"We are committed to offering Alitalia a fleet renewal solution that offers the best value proposition for regional jet efficiency with our CRJ900 and CRJ1000 aircraft," says Bombardier's Marianella delaBarrera.

Alitalia is 25% owned by Air France-KLM (AF.FR). The remainder is held by a private group of investors called Compagnia Aerea Italiana SpA.

Alitalia Boosts Number Of Seats Flying Out Of Egypt
31 January 2011

ROME (Dow Jones)--Alitalia said Monday it has increased its capacity to fly Italian nationals out of Egypt by operating its three daily flights from Cairo with 200-seater Airbus A321 jets rather than smaller A320 planes.

No flights have been canceled, although some have been delayed a bit to allow passengers to reach the airport, said the Rome-based company, in which Air France-KLM SA (AF.FR) is a significant shareholder.

The ANSA news agency reported that Italy's Foreign Ministry has advised citizens against taking holidays in Egypt, calling it "imprudent" to embark on such tours now. An estimated 15,000 Italians are currently in Egypt, according to the ministry.

21 March 2011

SAO PAULO (Dow Jones)--Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer S.A. (ERJ, EMBR4.BR) Monday announced the sale of 20 regional jets to Italian flagship carrier Alitalia.

The package includes 15 ERJ-175 models and five ERJ-190 models. The ERJ-175s will be configured for 88 passengers, while the ERJ-190s will take 100 passengers.

Embraer did not reveal financial terms of the deal. Based on previous sales, the package would be worth about $620 million.

Embraer said Alitalia will use the jets as part of a program to update its fleet and widen its network of regional flights.

Alitalia starts flights to Beijing and Rio

Italian national carrier Alitalia has launched services from Rome to the capital of China and Brazil’s second largest city. Alitalia can claim a first with the introduction of direct flights between Rome and Rio de Janeiro, a route not currently served by any other airline.

In June, the airline will operate Rome-Rio flights three times a week, before adding a fourth service in July. The new Rome Fiumicino-Beijing flight operates four times a week, with an additional flight to be added in October taking it to five times per week.

Alitalia already codeshares with China Eastern on flights between Rome and Shanghai.

Giancarlo Schisano, Alitalia’s director of operations, said China and Brazil represent “target markets” for expansion. Alitalia’s international growth strategy “focuses on areas of the world with the highest growth rate for leisure and business traffic,” he added.

The new flights are operated using new A330 Airbus aircraft, with a 3-class cabin configuration: Magnifica (business), Classica Plus (premium eceonomy) and Classica (economy). Alitalia has taken delivery of four new Airbus A330s in the past year.
