Deadline for Ferrovie's Alitalia plan set to be extended to April 30


MILAN, April 4 () - A deadline for Italy's biggest railways group to present a rescue plan for troubled carrier Alitalia is set to be extended by one month to end-April, a source close to the matter said.

Ferrovie dello Stato, the state-owned operator of Italy's railways, is in talks with Delta Air Lines over the rescue of Alitalia but could not present a business plan for the carrier by the previous deadline.

Alitalia was placed under special administration in 2017 after workers rejected the latest in a long line of rescue plans, and Ferrovie has been struggling to find partners ready to inject fresh funds and revamp the airline.
