Alitalia to ‘redefine’ Air France-KLM, Delta Air Lines JV: CCO

    Alitalia CCO Fabio Lazzerini said the carrier is in the process of “redefining” its JV with Air France-KLM and Delta Air Lines (TTG Italia, 24-Oct-2018). Mr Lazzerini said Alitalia will negotiate a “new alliance” to provide “greater flexibility in opening new routes and increasing capacity towards the US“. The US is the carrier’s “second most important market”, he said, adding the carrier is evaluating other openings and capacity increases alongside planned Rome Fiumicino-Washington service in summer 2019.
