The new slimmer board should lead the company along a more agile privatization path, which could last about two months. The Mef will negotiate with one of the two consortiums previously interested: the Italian-German MSC-Lufthansa or the US investment fund Certares (together with the carriers Air France and Delta Air Lines). Among the objectives of the Executive there is also that of avoiding the payment of the third installment of aid: 250 million euros in 2023.
