Italian government to resume talks on privatising Alitalia.
The Italian government is expected to resume talks this autumn to privatise all or parts of Alitalia.
The government is seeking to privatise the carrier to prevent Alitalia from being sidelined from possible European alliances. Alitalia has a small cross-shareholding with French partner Air France and there has been talk that the carriers could aim for a more comprehensive merger.
However, the government is split between proponents of an Air France deal and those who want to keep the airline Italian, reported Reuters.
