Alitalia through the years
Alitalia has served as Italy’s national airline for 74 years, but experienced more than its share of financial challenges and troubles over the years. It has been in extraordinary administration for the past 4 years. In August, Alitalia announced it would cease operations in October, with Italia Trasporto Aereo (ITA) becoming the successor airline.
