Air Italy: Solinas Relaunches Qatar Commitment But Airline Denies
“I stick to official data, that is to a letter signed by the CEO of Qatar Airways, Akbar Al Baker, which expresses our interest not only in reasoning with the Sardinia Region but in evaluating support investments”. Thus, answering a question in the press conference following the table on Air Italy, the governor Christian Solinas confirms the interlocutions with Qatar to maintain 49% of the company. Words immediately deny, however, by those directly concerned who have made it known that they no longer have any interest in the Sardinian carrier.
The president then explained that he was aiming for a shareholder base with public participation. “We will try to carry on the interlocutions with the Lombardy and Sicily Region that have expressed an interest in this sense, but I would add with Corsica that one of its companies already structured on this model – explained Solinas – Air Corse is a company that guarantees the connections between the island with 60% owned by Corsica and the rest of the team with the equivalent of our Cassa Depositi e Prestiti and in part Air France and the Chambers of Commerce “.
