“Such rumours are ungrounded, lack seriousness and serve other expediencies. At the same time, they cause confusion and doubt to the passengers intending to travel with the Company, affecting negatively the morale of its staff”.

“The Company in cooperation with its major shareholder, the state, and representatives of its private shareholders, does its best to secure not only its long-term viability but also its further growth so that it returns to profitability the soonest possible”.
