September 04, 2012

AirAsia Bhd. (AIRA), Asia’s biggest discount airline, may take over JAT Airways, Serbia’s state- owned flag carrier, Vecernje Novosti newspaper reported, citing an unidentified Serbian government official.

AirAsia representatives are meeting with Serbian officials in Belgrade this week and may bid for the unprofitable airline as it may choose the Serbian capital as a regional hub for flights to Asia, the report said.
