New Italian Carrier ITA, Replacing Alitalia, Aims to Take Over Ticket Sales Soon

ITA, the new Italian carrier that will replace Alitalia, aims to get control of ticket sales from the old airline as soon as possible, its CEO said Thursday. ITA was supposed to begin operations in early APR, but was delayed when the European Commission asked it to give up half of Alitalia’s slots at Milan Linate airport, the old brand and the loyalty program. ITA now hopes to find a compromise with the EU in the short term and launch its business on 01JUL.
