Order Granting Exemption and To Show Cause

By this order we (1) grant the request of Alitalia – Società Aerea Italiana S.p.A. for an exemption under 49 U.S.C. §40109, subject to conditions; (2) grant the request of Alitalia Società for transfer and reissuance of statements of authorization previously granted to Alitalia – Compagnia Aerea Italiana S.p.A. to conduct certain code-share operations with Aerovías de Mexico, S.A. de C.V. (, Société Air France, S.A. , and Delta Air Lines, Inc.; (3) grant the request of Alitalia Società for transfer and reissuance of the statement of authorization previously granted to Alitalia to engage in long-term wet lease operations to Alitalia subsidiary C.A.I. First, S.p.A. ; and (4) tentatively grant the application of Alitalia and Alitalia Società for the transfer of Alitalia’s foreign air carrier permit to Alitalia Società.

The Joint Applicants state that, effective immediately upon completion of the transaction implementation agreement between Alitalia and Etihad Airways P.J.S.C. , a foreign air carrier of the United Arab Emirates, most of Alitalia's assets and liabilities related to Alitalia's air transport services will be transferred to Alitalia Società through a contribution process under Italian law, which effectively entails the continuation by Alitalia Società of Alitalia' s business operations without interruption. The Joint Applicants further state that upon the closing of the Transaction, Alitalia, which is majority owned by EU Member State interests, will ultimately hold a 51% controlling equity stake in Alitalia Società. The Alitalia-Etihad Airways Transaction will close on or about December 31, 2014, at which time Alitalia Società will assume Alitalia's air transport services.

Alitalia Società requested that we grant it, in addition to authority currently contained in the U.S.-EU Agreement, authority to conduct scheduled and charter transportation authorized by any additional route rights made available to EU carriers in the future. We are granting the request of Alitalia Società for this authority by exemption. We are requiring Alitalia Società, before it commences any new service under this authority, to provide us with evidence that it holds a homeland license for that new service, unless it has already provided such evidence.
