Lufthansa outlines plans for Alitalia hubs post take-over

Lufthansa Group would develop Rome Fiumicino into its fifth major European hub should it be successful in its bid to acquire parts of Alitalia (AZ, Rome Fiumicino). The group currently operates hubs at Frankfurt Int’l and Munich (for Lufthansa), Zurich (for Swiss), and Vienna (for Austrian Airlines).

Speaking during the presentation of the Group’s 3Q17 financial results, the German carrier’s chief executive Carsten Spohr also told journalists that low-cost carrier Eurowings (EW, Dusseldorf) may also assume Alitalia’s Milan Linate and Milan Malpensa operations in such a scenario.
