Binding offers for Alitalia must be submitted by the end of October.
In its 70-year history Alitalia has rarely made a profit, and is currently losing €500,000 per day. It is unknown that the bridge loan of 600 million Euro to keep the airline afloat will suffice.
On a sidenote Alitalia will re-launch flights to Delhi, they are also starting seasonal flights to the Maldives while the flights to Los Angeles will go year round (from Winter 2017/2018).
