Atlantia says no talks with foreign investors over Rome airport stake
MILAN Feb 4 (Reuters) - Italy's Atlantia, which controls airport operator AdR, said on Tuesday it was not in talks with foreign institutional investors to sell a minority stake in the group that runs Rome's airports.
In a statement, Atlantia said a bond issuance in December had given AdR all the financial muscle it needed to fund its five-year business plan.
Some Italian media reports had said Abu Dhabi-based carrier Etihad Airways, in talks to potentially invest in Italian carrier Alitalia, was also interested in buying a stake in Rome's biggest airport Fiumicino.
However, Etihad's CEO said last month the company was not planning to take a stake in Fiumicino. (Reporting by Stephen Jewkes, editing by Agnieszka Flak)
