Alitalia dismisses reports of inability to operate

Alitalia dismissed (31-Oct-2013) media reports the carrier could be potentially unable to operate its scheduled services. The carrier stated: "Alitalia, in reference to some misleading news appeared today in the “Fatto Quotidiano” newspaper, noting that the capital increase of €300 million which is currently underway has already been secured for €130 million, and is guaranteed by Poste Italiane SpA and by two of Italy’s major banks: Intesa Sanpaolo SpA and UniCredit SpA, confirms the continuity of its flight operations."  [more - original PR]
