(Reuters) - Budget airline EasyJet <EZJ.L> said on Wednesday that it had submitted a revised expression of interest for a restructured Alitalia, in response to the new Italian government's ongoing sales process.

EasyJet had said in September that it was still talking to the Italian government over Alitalia's short-haul operations, adding that any deal needed to make commercial sense.

Alitalia, a symbol of Italy's post-war economic boom but now struggling to compete against low-cost carriers and high speed trains, was put under special administration last year.
