Does anyone know why all of Alitalia Express' 170s are on the Irish register rather than the Italian register?

Thanks Danny, but that doesn't really explain why they are on the Irish register. Lots of airlines lease aircraft from overseas lessors but have them registered in their home country. Why is this particular batch of aircraft not on the Italian register?

That depends on details of lease agreements which are not revealed. It's not just EMB170 - check this 767:

You will find Irish regs also in other airlines:

Also depends on the pilots that fly them!

Alitalia's B767 fleet was introduced as a "low-cost" fleet from a crew perspective - many of them were initially crewed by Ansett crews (VH- registered) then by Air 2000 crews, followed by Monarch crews (G- registered) before they were placed on the Italian register (I-)

I suspect the Irish registered aircraft may be operated differently from the rest of the fleet for a reason other than who owns them... Alitalia's current EI- registered B767s are leased from GECAS, which is of course American.

Registering some aircraft in Ireland will probably be because there is a financial advantage to do so, or possibly an operational one...
