Transport Ministry denies delaying Slovak Airlines privatisation

The Slovak Transport Ministry considers Austrian Airline's (AUA) statement about the privatisation of Slovak Airlines (SA) to be "misinformation",

the ministry's spokesperson Tomas Sarluska told the news agency TASR. He was reacting to the statement made by AUA in which it said:

"The Slovak Transport Ministry has delayed the privatisation in order to stabilise the financial situation of the company."

Sarluska told TASR that the privatisation schedule was being followed and that the Transport Ministry has submitted a draft privatisation plan to

the Economy Ministry, which will announce the tender for the sale of a 90-percent stake in SA. AUA is so far the only company to express an interest in buying SA, and it is ready to provide the company with financial assistance worth around €5 million.
