In an interview with a local radio station, Iceland Prime Minister Katrin Jakobsdottir disclosed the government may consider taking a stake in Icelandair Group if there is an injection of funds into the airline.

“If there will be specific support, we need to weigh if it is natural that the state gets a share in it or if the state’s interest is better guarded with another solution,” Jakobsdottir said in the interview.
