Consumer group says Alitalia to answer for accident


Rome, February 4 - Italian consumer group Codacons
said on Monday Alitalia would be questioned regarding a
Carpatair flight that veered off the runway in Rome on Saturday,
injuring three people.
The Romanian plane transporting 50 passengers arriving to
Rome from the city of Pisa was carrying out an Alitalia flight.
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.
Investigators are probing the accident.
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.
