Vienna / Rome – The newly launched Italian national carrier is desperately looking for partners. This is in common with its predecessor, Alitalia, which closed last week at the Italia Transporto Areo (ITA). ITA Airways launched 24 flights and 56 international flights. The squadron consists of 52 machines and that number is expected to increase to 105 by 2025. By 2025, the workforce is expected to grow to 5,700. Alitalia, which has been in arrears for nearly two decades, recently employed 10,500 people.
