Extraordinary commissioner to be appointed at Italy's Volare.
The chairman of low-cost Italian carrier Volare has said that he hopes the company will be able to relaunch flights following the appointment of an extraordinary commissioner.
Volare's flying licence was last week suspended by the Italian civil aviation authority ENAC for one month after it suspended its operations on 19 November 2004.
The Italian government approved a decree on Saturday (27 November) that allows a special commissioner to be appointed to oversee the Volare group, which includes Volare Airlines SpA and charter carrier AirEurope SpA.
The commissioner could be named within a few days, according to Italian state radio.
The government's decree will also provide assistance for the insolvent group's 1,400 employees, reports The Associated Press.
