Alitalia To Submit Authorization To Raise Capital By EUR 300 Mln

Alitalia's board has decided to submit to its next general assembly of shareholders an authorization to increase its capital by 300 million euros. The directors appointed by Franco-Dutch airline Air France - KLM's (AFLYY.PK,AFRAF.PK) have approved this emergency plan to enable continued operations at Alitalia.

The board voted on the measures a day after Alitalia sought help from the government to convince shareholders and creditors to put up more money for an airline that has failed to make a profit since coming out of bankruptcy five years back, according to the Wall Street Journal.
