“With the arrival of the new Airbus A320 YU-APS, our company will have three planes of this type in its fleet. Continued modernization of our fleet, management system, technical support, and crew training are the Serbian national airline’s strategic goals. In the past year, we expanded our fleet by adding eight new aircraft. Our turbojet fleet saw an addition of one Airbus A319 and A320, our regional fleet was rejuvenated with the addition of five ATR 72-600s, and as of December, our second Airbus A330-200 has taken flight, bearing the image of the famous Serbian scientist and inventor Mihajlo Pupin. This is the second addition to our fleet since the start of 2023 and we are very proud of it", said Marijan Kocić, Chief Operations Officer, Air Serbia.
The second Airbus A320, and the first one with sharklets, joined the Serbian national airline’s fleet on 13 October 2022. The aircraft bears the registration code YU-APO.
