ROME: Italy’s new ITA Airways has ordered 28 Airbus planes, the German-French conglomerate said in a statement on Wednesday, confirming an MoU signed in September.

The order includes seven compact A220 jets, 11 of the company’s blockbuster model A320neo and 10 A330neo widebody jets.

“In addition, the airline will pursue its plans to lease A350s to complement its fleet modernisation,” the company said.

ITA started flying in place of Alitalia in October, after the airline that was once a symbol of Italian style and glamour was finally grounded due to years of losses and failed rescue attempts.
