Aeroflot Is Now Looking At CSA

Tue Oct 30, 2007 1:49 pm

RIA news agency quoted vice-premier Sergei Naryshkin as saying that Russia was planning to buy into the Czech firm, although he did not name the Russian company that could act as a buyer.
"We are interested in the European market and are examining it closely. We of course are looking at Czech Airlines in particular, but for the moment we are not considering buying it," Aeroflot spokeswoman Irina Dannenberg told Reuters.

The Russian carrier, which has long been seeking to enter the European market, earlier said it might bid for the struggling Italian airline Alitalia and Serbia's JAT Airways.

The last thing CSA needs is to be managed from Kremlin. That's even worse than the local Czech political CEO appointee (Mr. Tvrdik) from the past.

Alitalia, Jat, CSA... Why is Aeroflot so desperate to control another European airline?
