DR&G Representing Adria Airways in Challenge to Serbia's State Aid for Air Serbia

DR&G Representing Adria Airways in Challenge to Serbia's State Aid for Air Serbia

Deals and Cases

Doklestic Repic & Gajin is advising Slovenian airline Adria Airways in relation to its challenge to State aid granted to Air Serbia.

According to DR&G, the state aid provided to Air Serbia is a violation of Serbian law and a violation of the country’s international obligations under the Stabilization and Association Agreement with the EU. The firm reports that Adria Airways contacted the Serbian Commission for control of state aid but received no reply, and has now initiated proceedings in EU institutions.

DR&G Partner Dragan Gajin commented: “Adria Airways is worried over the aid that Serbia has illegally provided to Air Serbia and feels that it is inappropriate because it disrupts freedom of competition on the market.”

The Serbian government owns 51 percent of Air Serbia, with the remaining 49 percent held by Etihad Airways from the United Arab Emirates.

The DR&G team is led by Partner Dragan Gajin.
