Ryanair-ITA obstacle: Big flight terminal slots at stake

Irish low-cost service provider has an interest in the ports at Milan Linate and Rome Fiumicino flight terminals Alitalia ports should be offered

for tender with a European tender– this is what Ryanair executives asked in a letter sent to Ministers Stefano Patuanelli (Economic Growth)and Paola De Micheli(Infrastructure and Transportation ), making use of the EU’s referral on clear sale of all the possessions of the old Alitalia. Irish low-cost carrier is interested in the slots at Milan Linate

as well as Rome Fiumicino airports. Strong interest in those slots had actually been manifested over the last two years with duplicated courtship and also currently validated in the letter dealt with to the Italian government. The stakes are extremely high both for Ryanair, in sharp decline after the COVID-19 situation, as well as for Alitalia’s transition from to Newco ITA (Italia Trasporto Aereo ), which need to take off as quickly as possible and also under the very best operating conditions.
