Government's Talks With Allitalia For Air Malta PArtnership Terminated

In the wake of the long drawn out collapse of the government’s talks with Alitalia - Compagnia Aerea Italiana S.p.A. over a strategic partnership with national airline Air Malta plc, the airline now appears to be flying on nothing more than a wing and a prayer. That the talks with Alitalia were destined to failure had been a given for quite some time and the writing had been on the wall in big, bold letters for practically months before the government informed the unions, and then the press, of the talks’ failure. The national airline has rarely been clear of turbulence over recent years. From its near bankruptcy and the €130 million bailout in the form of the state aid it had been given in 2012 under the previous government, to the current government’s failed bid to entice a strategic partner in what would effectively have been be another bailout for the long-suffering airline.
