JAT Airways in strategic partnership talks with Turkish Airlines

JAT Airways CEO, Sroan Radovanovic, confirmed the carrier is in negotiations with Turkish Airlines over a strategic partnership, with talks progressing well (Tanjug, 30-Mar-2010). The CEO also noted that the Serbian Government would not be covering the carrier’s debts, unless a strategic partner requests it. Serbian Deputy Prime Minister, Bozidar Delic, stated there is a case that JAT would be able to prove itself as a competitive entity and the country would be disadvantaged without the presence of a national carrier (Tanjug, 30-Mar-2010).
