In relation to the tender for the acquisition of the maintenance branch of Alitalia in Extraordinary Administration expiring today, 14 March 2022, Gianni Lettieri, Chairman of Atitech, announces that he has signed a preliminary maintenance contract with the company ITA Airways.
The company Atitech has completed due diligence and will submit by today a binding offer for the purchase of the maintenance branch of AZ and, in case of award, the preliminary contract signed with ITA Airways, will be consolidated into a long-term commitment that identifies services and rates inherent to the activities acquired in the tender.
The agreement is based on the general terms and conditions of the Standard Agreement (published by IATA – Editions 2013 and 2018), with all the exceptions, derogations and special conditions indicated within the regulations dictated by the EU in this regard.
In the event that Atitech is not awarded the tender issued by Alitalia under extraordinary administration, the preliminary contract will be terminated.
“The signing of this preliminary services contract with ITA Airways – said President Lettieri – is the basis on which to work for the future of the two companies. Atitech will support the company with maximum commitment and professionalism, guaranteeing priority services and high quality; moreover, it will aim to bring back to Fiumicino an audience of international airlines, as it did in the past with its relaunch of Naples – Capodichino airport”. The Chairman also adds that “the commitment will be to provide Italy with a strategic infrastructure for aircraft maintenance, from line to base maintenance, from engines to components, as it exists in the main European countries”.
