Serbia is completing all necessary paperwork to take over the remaining stake in Air Serbia from Etihad Airways, announced Finance Minister Siniša Mali.
“Air Serbia is the largest airline in the region. From a company that was bankrupt, we have created a leader that now flies to four continents, in a large number of countries. We have become an example of how, through a successful airline, you can further contribute to the economic development of your country,” Mali stated during a press conference at the Ministry of Finance, expressing gratitude to Etihad Airways:
“I want to thank the people from Etihad Airways, who have been our partners and co-owners of Air Serbia since 2013. They are exiting Air Serbia due to their business decisions, and it is up to us to develop our company.”
According to him, the state will give full attention to the further development of Air Serbia, including acquiring large aircraft and opening new destinations.
