While Lufthansa and EasyJet have bid to purchase assets of Alitalia. The airline that had gone into administration in May last year told that it has received seven offers to buy Alitalia.
Though Lufthansa expressed its intention to bring in a ‘new Alitalia’ it is hoping to buy only part of it.The decision may have changed after Italian Government channeled 300 million euros to Alitalia to maintain the current status till next year. The announcement came hours before the dead line (6 pm local time 16 October 2017) to make bidding offers.
Alitalia said now it would start assessing the offers.
