During the upcoming summer season, Air Serbia will increase the number of flights to New York and from June 18 to the beginning of September will fly seven times a week to that American city, that is, every day of the week, the national airline announced.
So far, the largest increase in the number of weekly Air Serbia flights to New York is the result of the recent expansion of the long-haul fleet. In addition to the Airbus A330-200 plane with the image of Nikola Tesla, the national airline has also had an Airbus A330-200 with the image of Mihajlp Pupin since November last year, it was stated in the announcement.
Air Serbia has been flying to New York for seven years. During that time, the number of weekly flights changed, but never exceeded six, reminded Džorž Petković, regional director of Air Serbia for North and South America.
Since 2016, more than 460,000 passengers have flown between Belgrade and New York on Air Serbia. It is one of the most sought-after destinations in the network of the national airline. During the winter season, Air Serbia flew between Belgrade and New York three times a week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
From May 17, 2023, Air Serbia will establish direct, regular flights between Belgrade and Chicago. Until June 11, flights to O’Hare Airport (ORD) will be operated twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and from June 12, three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
By increasing the number of flights between Belgrade and New York, as well as by introducing flights to Chicago, the Serbian national airline will offer up to 10 weekly flights between the Serbian capital and North America during the upcoming summer season.
Thanks to the partnership with the American Airlines company, simpler trips from Belgrade, through New York and Chicago, to the east and west coast of America are possible, according to the announcement.
