MINSK, April 25 (Itar-Tass) — Belarus’ state-run air carrier Belavia has not confirmed the information on preparations for selling shares to Russia’s Aeroflot.
“We have no such information. We do not know about any proposals made by Belavia to any air carriers, including Aeroflot,” Belavia deputy director-general, Igor Cherginets, told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
He made this statement following reports that appeared in Russia’s mass media on Tuesday on alleged preparations for selling Belavia. Russia’s flag carrier Aeroflot was named as possible buyer.
Cherginets recalled that earlier Belarusian senior officials really made statements about possible privatization of Belavia.
On April 12 Transport and Communications Minister Ivan Shcherbo told reporters that the government was eying the company’s privatization. He noted that Belavia was put on the list of companies the shares of which will be sold to investors.
“But this will not happen this year,” he said. “In principle, all republican unitary enterprises, except the Belarusian railway, will be sold out until 2015,” he said.
