Italy would welcome Lufthansa taking stake in Alitalia - govt source

ROME, Oct 17 (Reuters) - The Italian government would welcome German carrier Lufthansa taking a stake in Alitalia, a government source said on Thursday.

Two other sources close to the matter said earlier that Lufthansa has expressed a willingness to join the rescue of the Italian loss-making carrier.

Alitalia received a commitment on Tuesday from Italian toll-road operator Atlantia and state railways Ferrovie dello Stato (FS) to each take a stake provided a number of conditions were met.

Italy on Thursday granted the troubled airline a new bridge loan of 350 million euros for six months.
