Airlines group Air France-KLM is reportedly withdrawing from the rescue plan for the Italian industry partner Alitalia. That decision was inspired by the diplomatic riot between France and Italy, writes business newspaper Il Sole 24 Ore on the basis of insiders. Deputy Prime Minister Luigi Di Maio denies that the quarrel has affected the negotiations around Alitalia.

Italian media reported earlier that the Franco-Dutch aviation combination together with the American airline Delta in the ailing Alitalia wanted to step. Together they would take a 40 percent stake, while state-run company Ferrovie dello Stato would remain the major shareholder on behalf of Italy.

The political riot between Paris and Rome would now have thrown in the works. France withdrew its ambassador to Italy on Thursday, out of anger about alleged interference in domestic affairs by members of the Italian government. The French found a meeting between Di Maio and ‘yellow vests’ a provocation.

Opposite the ANSA news agency, Di Maio rejects the idea that Air France-KLM is diverting its hands from Alitalia due to diplomatic turbulence.

“I have been following the Alitalia file for several months. The enthusiasm of Air France has not cooled down now. “
