ROME/MILAN, Oct 3 (Reuters) - Italian infrastructure group Atlantia has asked the country’s industry ministry to radically revise the rescue plan for Alitalia if negotiations to salvage the ailing carrier are to go on, a source familiar with the matter said.
The source was confirming a report in Thursday’s Corriere della Sera newspaper.
Atlantia is part of a group of investors led by Italian railways Ferrovie dello Stato behind a possible rescue of the loss-making airline which also include Delta Air Lines.
Delta has agreed to increase its investment in Alitalia to 120 million euros, giving the U.S. airline a stake of 12%, up from an initial 10%, Corriere della Sera added in the report. (Reporting by Stefano Bernabei in Rome and Gianluca Semeraro in Milan; editing by Valentina Za)
