Alitalia cancels several routes in Europe
Alitalia gives up European routes!
Alitalia is going through a difficult time. At the end of last year, Alitalia management approved the second phase of development of the company. It provides for: the development of the long-courier route network; streamlining operations and reducing costs; optimization of commercial agreements with other companies; increasing productivity.
But the most controversial point in the second phase of development is related to the layoff of a significant number of employees. Alitalia unions are rebelled and are opposed to this action.

At the same time, Alitalia is considering optimizing operations in Europe. According to routesonline.com, Alitalia will cancel dozens of European flights, and some routes will be closed. Among the routes to be abandoned are also Rome - Bucharest, the date of the last flight being scheduled for 31 January 2017.
