EasyJet Still Keen on Parts of Alitalia
MILAN (Reuters) - EasyJet (EZJ.L) is still keen on parts of Alitalia after an Italian minister said this week the government wants the majority of the carrier under state control, the chief executive of the British low cost airline told daily Corriere della Sera.
Asked about the minister’s comments at the Farnborough air show, EasyJet CEO Johan Lundgren reiterated the company’s interest for parts of Alitalia, but has to speak with Italy’s new government, which came into power in June, to “understand what they are thinking,” he added.
Earlier this year, EasyJet, Lufthansa (LHAG.DE), and budget carrier Wizz Air (WIZZ.L) submitted expressions of interest in at least parts of Alitalia, but the lengthy formation of a new anti-establishment government in Italy delayed the process.
