Belgrade airport chief detained over Wizz Air deal
Wed Jul 2, 5:35 PM UTC
BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — Police have detained the head of Belgrade Airport on suspicion that he made a sweetheart deal with Wizz Air.
Police said Wednesday that Vladimir Radosavljevic is suspected of abusing his position in 2010 when he allowed the low-cost Hungarian-based airline to use Belgrade's Nikola Tesla Airport at lower rates than were in effect at the time.
Police say Radosavljevic's arrangement with Wizz Air cost the airport 1.7 million euros ($2.3 million). It was not immediately clear if Radosavljevic himself is suspected of taking any money and it was not possible to contact him while in detention.
Wizz Air has denied allegations it was granted a preferable position.
