Gualtieri: “First step for a quality carrier” – Ansa /Courier TV
With a decree signed by four ministers, Economy, Transport, Development and Labor, the Newco “Alitalia Ita” was born. The board will be led by Francesco Caio as president and by Fabio Maria Lazzerini, in the role of CEO. “The newco is the first step towards the establishment of a quality carrier,” said Minister Gualtieri. “She will be Italian because she will have to bring Italy to the world”, tweeted Minister De Micheli. Therefore, Alitalia’s commissioner management ends, but not the obstacles to overcome. It will take 30 days for the decree to go to Parliament. Then the new industrial plan will have to be presented, which will have a time span of five years. The next step is the evaluation by the EU Commissioner for Competition, Margrethe Vestager. It will have to determine whether the choices made are considered state aid and therefore not compatible with European legislation. The discontinuity with respect to the old company will also be assessed, as well as the assets, the employees, the company composition.
