Alitalia CCO: Long haul development prioritised over short haul due to LCC competition

24 October, 2017

Alitalia CCO Fabio Maria Lazzerini affirmed Alitalia aims to reinforce its long haul network ahead of its short haul network (BTN, 23-Oct-2017). "Our goal is to increase... long haul connectivity. That's the only way", he said, explaining: "We can still compete well with the low cost carriers, but we cannot do only that; it can be a portion to feed our long haul connections".
