Jat to get four Airbus aircraft
Airbus talks to resume in AugustSerbian media have reported that both Jat Airways and Airbus have agreed for the Serbian national carrier to receive four Airbus aircraft in exchange for the 1998 order for eight aircraft from the European plane manufacturer. The agreement was made recently at the Farnborough Air Show near London and signed by Jat CEO, Srdjan Radovannović, and the Airbus deputy for sales in Eastern Europe, Andreas Kramer. Although the aircraft type the airline will be receiving has not been specified by the agreement it is speculated that it will be the Airbus A319, agreed upon twelve years ago. Talks between Jat and Airbus, in regards to finally specifying the order, will commence this month. Jat is looking to use to its advantage the 23 million US Dollar deposit it has made over a decade ago.
