Planes: Schifani, ‘cartel’ Ita-Ryanair for flights to Sicily

(ANSA) – PALERMO, DECEMBER 10 – “It is a scandalous fact, there is a ‘cartel’ between the two companies Ita, with public capital, and Ryanair, which serve Sicily, a two-way monopoly under which prices have skyrocketed On Monday, and we are not yet at Christmas, those leaving from Sicily, Palermo or Catania, for a round trip to Rome spend over a thousand euros, while those leaving from Rome for Milan pay around 200. An anomalous market situation that we have denounced, for this reason we are turning to the Antitrust”.

This was stated by the president of the Sicilian Region, Renato Schifani.

“Sicily – underlined the governor – cannot pay this pledge, especially when a public capital company is involved which must implement social policies without making a loss, but must study corporate strategies that are suited to the need of the territory”.

“We denounce to the Antitrust the ‘cartel’ put in place by Ita and Ryanair who decide what the prices should be – explained Schifani – because in essence they have decided on a non-competition agreement between themselves”. .
