Alitalia suspends Carpatair flights after runway skid


Rome, February 4 - Alitalia on Monday suspended all
flights with Romanian partner carrier Carpatair after a flight
carrying Alitalia veered off the runway in Rome on Saturday.
The Romanian plane transporting 50 passengers arriving to
Rome from the city of Pisa was carrying out an Alitalia flight
when it lost control and injured three people on board.
A passenger told ANSA that the plane touched down twice
before the landing gear bent out of shape and the aircraft ended
up off the runway.
One of the three people hospitalized was said to have
non-life-threatening spinal injuries and the other two pelvic
In a statement on Saturday Alitalia said that "strong
winds" drove the plane off the runway.
Alitalia's suspension of Carpatair connections will last
throughout an investigation, the Italian carrier said.
Several incidents have raised questions about the Alitalia-
Carpatair partnership.
Last month a Carpatair flight from Ancona to Rome made an
emergency landing soon after take-off and in December a flight
from Pisa's airport was stopped on the runway before takeoff
when ground crew noticed it was dangerously leaking fuel as it
taxied in preparation for flight.
