Airsupply:After struggling for 30 years, this famous airline still fell

Italy's Air Freight services company (Alitalia) recently announced that it will close its business on October 14, 2021 and will no longer sell tickets. Passengers who have purchased tickets can choose to refund tickets.

 

This also means that this 74-year-old airline will officially become history.

 

Once the "national image" that Italy was proud of, Alitalia was called "freccia alata (winged arrow)" by Italians, and had high hopes. Now this familiar red and green tail wing will disappear forever in the sky (slowly... it also costs money to change the paint).

 

Although the collapse of Alitalia may bring disappointment to Italians, it is not a surprise.

 

In the past 30 years, it has been on the brink of collapse many times, with government aid and loans reaching 10 billion U.S. dollars.

 

After the fall of Alitalia, a new company funded by the Italian Ministry of Finance, ITA (Italia Trasporto Aereo), will take over from October 15, 2021.
