Alitalia dies after 75 turbulent years, hands over to ITA

Alitalia, a one-time symbol of Italian style and glamour brought low by economic mismanagement, will operate its last flight on Thursday after 75 years, before handing over to its downsized successor Italia Trasporto Aereo (ITA). The traditional choice of popes, prima donnas and Italy’s political elite, Alitalia has been run by state-appointed administrators since 2017 to avoid being liquidated. As has often been the case during its lifetime, Alitalia’s last rites were surrounded by political dispute, with the far-right opposition party Brothers of Italy blaming Prime Minister Mario Draghi’s government for its demise.
