Windjet passengers suffer more delays amid takeover trouble


(ANSA) - Rome, August 10 - Passengers travelling with the
Sicilian low-cost carrier Windjet suffered further disruption
Friday after the near-bankrupt airline cancelled four flights.
Over 460 passengers were left stranded at Rome's Fiumicino
airport after Windjet cancelled flights to Catania and Palermo.
Alitalia, which is in negotiations to purchase the airline,
managed to accommodate most but not all of the passengers on
special substitute flights.
Delays have also been anounced on two Windjet flights to
Palermo and Catania on Friday evening.
On Friday representatives of the struggling low-cost carrier
founded by Catania football club owner Antonino Pulvirenti
failed to attend a meeting with Italian civil aviation authority
officials for the second consecutive day after being summoned to
demonstrate that the airline's operations plan is adequate "to
prevent cancellations and prolonged delays to flights and
consequent disservice to passengers" while negotiations for the
takeover by Alitalia contine.
Alitalia is still waiting for Windjet to hand over necessary
documentation, including certificates pertaining to the
maintenance of its fleet of 12 Airbuses, which is required to
establish a purchase price for the airline.
