Supported byspot_img

Air Serbia has added five new destinations to its network over the past ten days, with all performing strongly in their first week.

On April 6, Air Serbia restored operations between Belgrade and Tel Aviv after more than three years. The service also marks the carrier’s return to the Middle East. It will compete against Arkia Israeli Airlines on the route. “Tel Aviv is one of the most modern centres in the Middle East. By bringing this cosmopolitan city back into our network of destinations, we have opened the doors of Israel to everyone who wants to visit it”, Air Serbia’s Head of Network Planning and Scheduling, Bojan Arandjelović, said.

On April 7, Air Serbia commenced operations to the Turkish capital of Ankara. The carrier will operate the service alongside Turkish Airlines’ lower cost unit AnadoluJet. “The introduction of nonstop flights between the two capitals will enhance the already great economic, social and cultural cooperation between Serbia and Turkey, and further improve the mobility of people and cargo. During the summer season, we will also be offering charter flights to Antalya, Alanya, Bodrum and Dalaman”, Air Serbia’s General Manager for Commercial and Strategy, Boško Rupić, noted.

On April 14, Air Serbia added another Italian destination to its network by inaugurating services between Belgrade and Catania. “Italy is one the most popular destinations for tourists. Our company operates scheduled flights to Rome, Bologna, Milan, Venice, Bari, and Trieste, and now we have commenced a seasonal service to Catania. In the coming period, we will expand our presence in Italy by adding flights to another three cities in our growing network. Nonstop flights to Catania will allow passengers to more comfortably and quickly reach the largest island in the Mediterranean”, Mr Arandjelovic said.

On April 15, Air Serbia added its third scheduled destination in Turkey by launching flights to Izmir. “With the addition of Izmir to our network, we have further expanded Air Serbia’s presence in Turkey and brought the Balkans and Anatolia closer together. Not far from Izmir are some of the most popular summer resorts and historical monuments, which makes it even more interesting to tourists. We believe that nonstop flights will be one of the deciding factors when choosing the next destination to visit in the East”, Mr Rupić said. Air Serbia will maintain services to Izmir alongside AnadoluJet, which itself launched flights between the two cities on April 13.

Also on April 15, Air Serbia launched flights from Belgrade to Lisbon, adding the Portuguese market to its network. The airline currently faces no direct competition on the route, however, it will be joined by Wizz Air from July 25. “There has been lots of interest for launching flights between Belgrade and Lisbon”, Mr Rupić added.
