Air Serbia can count on state assistance

Serbian flag carrier Air Serbia, whose losses have been estimated at over €40 million, can count on state assistance, Construction Minister Zorana Mihajlovic told Prva TV station in an interview on Saturday (16 May), adding that compared to many large companies abroad facing bankruptcy, the national flag carrier is “resilient enough to adapt”.

“Air Serbia is small, not over-indebted and owns 20 planes, while the state is there to create conditions for the company to work,” the minister said, recalling that, during the state of emergency, the company brought back Serbian citizens and flew in medical supplies.

The minister also recalled that the European air transportation sector had lost more than €160 billion. (
