Rome - Fifteen months of receivership has made it possible for Alitalia to improve its balance sheet. In the first half of the year, revenues from online ticket sales increased by 19.7% compared to the first half of 2017.
Alitalia itself announced this in a press release explaining that its passengers are increasingly inclined to use digital tools to fly: visits to the company’s website have increased by 10%. In the traditionally difficult month of July, Alitalia achieved 99.6% regularity.
In other words, Italy’s former flag carrier explained in the press release, it is the company that has made the least cancellations and delays in Europe. This is certified by data from Flightstats, an authoritative independent company in the United States, which compiles its ranking every month by analysing data from the world’s leading airline companies.”
