Alitalia: “Airlines are actively involved in promoting the security of air transport, they have reported milestone achievements in mitigating the environmental impact of air traffic growth – but the key for sustainable success is twofold: establishing the trust of our passengers that we will deliver consistently, and developing products that the market needs. There is no way airlines can expect a return to pre-crisis conditions. The crisis has fundamentally changed the way we do business,” Rocco Sabelli, President and CEO. Source: Alitalia, 25-Jan-2010.
