PARIS, Sept 17 (Reuters) - The French government is hoping for improved offers for insolvent airline Aigle Azur and that any offer from Air France will save as many Aigle Azur jobs as possible, junior transport minister Jean-Baptiste Djebbari said on Tuesday.
“I am hoping that the offers will be improved,” Djebbari told FranceInfo radio.
Privately held Aigle Azur was put under bankruptcy protection on Sept. 2 and eventually had to halt operations. Both Air France and EasyJet have expressed an interest in putting in rescue offers for Aigle Azur. (Reporting by Sudip Kar-Gupta)
