Turkish Airlines, which has shown interest in purchasing Jat, seems to have “cooled off” from the idea. However, on Monday the Turkish Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan pledged in Belgrade that talks between the two national carriers will speed up. "We are ready for steps that will make that cooperation possible. I am promising to do my best so that the people of Serbia have links to every corner of the world through our two companies", Erdogan told a news conference in Belgrade. The Serbian Prime Minister, Mirko Cvetković, only said that he and Erdogan "tackled aviation industry issues".
A high ranking delegation from Turkish Airlines was scheduled to travel with Mr. Erdogan but their visit was cancelled. Officials from Serbia say that their visit will be rescheduled for another time.
