Alitalia will reduce costs by €1 billion by 2019 and the majority of savings – two-thirds – will come from non-labour related costs while one third will be related to labour and productivity.

Achieving profitability by 2019 means Alitalia can implement positive growth that includes six new long-haul aircraft joining the fleet between 2019 and 2021. This is in addition to two aircraft joining in 2017 and 2018. The airline is also planning to launch ten new long-haul routes between 2019 and 2021 and to recruit up to 500 new crew members by 2019.

Headcount will reduce by up to 2,000 permanent and temporary roles in the business, which is a 50 per cent reduction in office staff and a 20 per cent reduction in non-flying operational roles.

Alitalia will rebalance its fleet of aircraft by 2018, reducing its narrow-body fleet by 20. The airline will increase aircraft utilisation with a particular focus on short and medium-haul aircraft. Alitalia plans to grow its number of flights from Italy to the Americas – one of its most underserved markets – and build its presence at Milan Linate, Sicily and Sardinia. The airline will re-evaluate its transatlantic options to try and fly more often on existing routes and to add new cities in the Americas.

Alitalia under bankruptcy protection

This was a long time coming, and now I think there will be no white knights to rescue the company.

Air France-KLM are good candidates to buy parts of the company and take hold of the Fuiumicino and Malpensa hubs...

The government has granted a 600 million euro loan to the company so that the carrier does not have to stop its flights.

The government said that the company will not be fractionated but sold to the best buyer. National press spoken about Lufthansa or Delta.

Delta cannot buy a European airline due to capital regulations.

Yeah, Delta is American. But they spoken about the chance to adopt a solution similar to the one recently implemented for Meridiana.

Personally, I think it would be great if Air France-KLM buys Alitalia, and then makes Fiumicino its third European hub after CDG and AMS (with less emphasis on Malpensa and relegating Linate to a regional/minor role). It would prevent Lufthansa-Swiss-Austrian getting too big and too dominant in Central Europe routes, which would be bad for competition.

Nobody will touch AlItalia. They are three times the size of Aer Lingus with 12600 employees. Aer Lingus has 4000 employees after dramatically restructuring itself in the 1990s/2000s and has a similar sizes fleet as AlItalia today. AlItalia staff refused a 10% cut in the workforce to trigger this latest bankruptcy.

Structurally Al Italia is a much less important flag carrier than most. It carries only 10% of international traffic to Italy. This is it I am afraid. Con Te Partiro.

The special administrators appointed by Italian government launched the sale process for Alitalia. Potential investors can express their interest in June, followed by the presentation of non-binding offers in July and their final offers in October. The new industrial plan will be prepared in July, they said. "If in the old plans there's something good, we will keep it, otherwise we will not: we are free in this respect" said Stefano Paleari, one of the three state-appointed administrators of Alitalia.

This would be a good option. It would make a strong Star Alliance (Lufthansa), a strong One World (BA/Iberia/Aer Lingus) and a strong Sky Team alliance.

I have always wondered why there isn't more of a coverage in the European side of things as theres too many hubs, and not enough regional hubs going to/from each other to take away traffic from the hubs.

Personally id like to see Linate take one or two more routes on as id like to see Alitalia fly to Scotland, even on a single flight a day basis. Same for Rome as well, as there is a large Italian community here and also a large amount of folk who would like to see Italy. Im sure there is also many other regional areas that Alitalia don't service that would be good additions to their Regional portfolio.

It makes me wonder why carriers don't get shot of some routes, or even reduce capacity on some routes and take on some new routes, even on a single flight a day basis. Same could be said for Scandinavian airlines, there is zero coverage here in Scotland.

There really is a lack of competition on the Hub and Regional Hub side of things, yes the flag carrier in that nation is going to have a larger presence, however if there is a gate or two set aside for the regional carriers on a alliance basis, and stagger the arrivals at for a hourly basis. I don't mind one stopping, many don't, but going from GLA-AMS-LIN or MAL-NAP would drain me. I have always wondered why carriers don't go to new routes, or try them. Or do the flag carriers just not care and just pass over trade for the low cost carriers? And they just don't have the connections i would like from here.

I do know it takes at least 3 years for a route to become profitable, but I'm sure there is other reasons we all don't know.

Italian financial daily Il Sole 24 Ore reported that Alitalia received 32 non-binding offers from different companies and consortia of the US, Europe, Middle East and Asia.

Rumors suggested that among those who sent a letter there might be Delta Air Lines, Hainan Airlines, Air China, Air France-KLM, British Airways, Turkish Airlines, Ethiad Airways, as well as private equity funds like Tpg, Cerberus, Indigo Partners.

The submission deadline of non-binding offers was set for June 5 at 6PM. However, this represent just a first step of the process. Binding offers have to be received by September/October, said one of the three Commissioners, Enrico Laghi.

Bids can be made to buy the whole company, restructure it or acquire assets and contracts, according to the tender document signed by Commissioners appointed by Italian government.

Lufthansa on Monday presented an offer for Alitalia, indicating its "intrest in the creation of a 'New Alitalia'", a statement from the German airline said a few hours before the deadline for offers for the Italian airline.

Lufthansa underlined that Italy is the second most important market for the company, after the US. Lufthansa, however, has decided not to make an offer for the whole company but has shown interest only for "some parts of the airline's global traffic and its domestic and European point-to-point activities", the statement said.

Lufthansa has offered 500 million euros ($590 million) to acquire the planes, airport runway slots and air crew. Lufthansa has also proposed halving Alitalia's workforce of 12,000 employees.

Il Corriere della Sera daily said the offer was likely to be rejected by the state commissioners. Rome wants to sell the whole of Alitalia in one package and avoid a split of its aviation and ground service activities.

why are AirBerlin and Alitalia bankrupt, because they had a business modell which wont work, not efficient, too high costs, bad structure

the only possible outcome is sell all value and terminate the old company, nobody will buy this broken one complete, the arabs was stupid enough to give the last years a lot of money to keep them alive for feeding their long haul, they stopped because there is no future

Lufthansa would be for Italia the best possible deal, they operate already 2 regional branches called "Austrian" and "Swiss", it feels like a national airline but it is Lufthansa, same story local airline crashed and reorganiced with a working system by Lufthansa

EasyJet on Monday presented an offer to buy "some assets" of a restructured Alitalia, the British low-cost carrier said in a statement. The offer came a few hours before the deadline for offers at midnight local time.

Meanwhile the Italian government postponed the deadline for making a final decision over the sale. The sale will now be finalised by April 2018.
