Anama's applause for the airlines scheduled flights for Italian goods

Albertini: well Alitalia that decides the conversion of a flight pax in all cargo

The Anama (National Association of Air Goods Agents, section Fedespedi and Confetra) expressed gratitude against all carriers that, at this time of chronic lack of airspace, are rescheduling flights to and from Italy in all forms: all cargo planes, mixed aircraft and aircraft passengers converted into cargo planes. At this moment -- he underlined the association -- every little signal helps because with the shortage of hold and high noli the air route is suffering and risk losing market share in favour of other modes.

"We therefore welcome - explained the President by Anama, Alessandro Albertini - today's communiqué from Alitalia with which he reports the conversion of a B777-200 into full cargo version. As a category we will have to make the most of this new capability offered by these aircraft re-adapted. It's an interesting challenge, but the imagination shipping companies are not lacking and soon we will find the appropriate solutions."

"Rimarco," Albertini continued, "how this is a Alitalia's first response that goes in the direction we hoped showing interest and attention to the air transport industry strategic for our country. In fact, as I have already had the ability to declare, with stagnation or regression of private consumption and public investment, only exports guarantee our country's automatic and significant growth margins. Remember as long as our exports contribute 30% to GDP Italy and that since 2009 the weight of exports on GDP has been increased by more than seven percentage points. By air it moves 26% of EU exports and a quarter of Italian goods they use the airway to get to the outlet market outside European Union.'

"We must - concluded the President of Anama - keep hold capacity to support our companies and this Alitalia's step bodes well for us. Now we hope that in the reconstruction of our flag carrier will continue in the direction undertaken, creating a division dedicated to transport cargo aircraft with all-cargo aircraft that have as a base Malpensa departure."
