FOUNDED 75 YEARS AGO
Founded 75 years ago, Alitalia was once known to Italians as the “winged arrow,” according to CNN’s report. Their aircraft featured the popular logo with a large ‘A’ colored like the Italian flag. This logo was one of Italy’s most recognizable symbols overseas.
Alitalia was proud of its Italian style and food. In the 1950s, flight attendants wore elegant uniforms designed by fashion house Sorelle Fontana. In later years, an impressive staff of Delia Biagiotti, Alberto Fabiani, Renato Balestra and even Giorgio Armani created stylish outfits and comfortable seating.
BANKRUPTCY HAS BEEN IMPOSSIBLE
Alitalia has been grappling with financial problems for a long time. Over the last 30 years, the Italian government has donated billions of euros to save the airline from extinction and keep its employees in business.
The company declared bankruptcy in May 2017. In addition, the company was in trouble after the pandemic. The lack of flights for a long time in 2020, and the fact that the number of passengers could not return to old levels after the corona virus bans were relaxed, put the company in bankruptcy to an end.
