Alitalia in danger, authorities say

September 23, 2008|From Times Wire Services

Italian aviation authorities warned that Alitalia could be grounded within days if no deal was reached to sell the troubled airline.

Alitalia's bankruptcy administrator said the airline's chances for survival looked bleak. "There are no prospects for a rescue in a reasonable time," Augusto Fantozzi said.

Without a rescue plan, the national civil aviation body, ENAC, may be forced to ground the airline, said the agency's chief, Vito Riggio.
