Meanwhile, in a letter to the CEO of the airline, the Ministry for Infrastructure said that Jat would experience minimal disruption as a result of the creation of a new Serbian national carrier and Jat’s successor. The new airline, in which the Government will invest 400.000 American dollars, is expected to start up by the end of the year, taking over Jat’s brand, destinations, employees and fleet.
Jat’s HQ, known as the Jat Business Centre, was opened in May 1996. The entire building takes up 25.000 square metres although the airline sold 17.000 square metres to other companies several years ago in order to boost revenue.
Airspace across most of Europe, with the exception of Portugal, has reopened today after a weekend of disruption caused by ash emitted for the Icelandic volcano.
