Seems like Italy is sprouting cargo airlines recently. Off course we wonder if they will have better luck then Ocean and CargoItalia.

ALIS Aerolinee Italiane, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Airbus, for the acquisition of five A330-200 freighter aircraft, plus three options. An engine choice has not been made yet.
With an important cargo market potential, Alis Aerolinee Italiane, intends to establish direct links between Northern Italy and long haul markets such as North America, India, China, Japan and South East Asia.
"By opting for the A330-200F for our operations, we start with the most modern cargo aircraft available on the market in its category. The A300-200F offers superior economics, operational flexibility and overall better value for money is what made it the logical choice for Alis and its shareholders," said Alcide Leali, founder and chief executive officer of Alis Aerolinee Italiane.
