In June, Air Serbia will be introducing direct flights to no less than nine new cities, which is the biggest number of new destinations since 2013, when the company started operating under its current name. With the introduction of regular year-round flights to Kiev, Madrid, Barcelona, Rijeka, Krasnodar, Helsinki and Cairo, as well as seasonal routes to Nice and Zadar, the national airline is increasing the number of its destinations by almost 20%.
The inaugural flights to Helsinki and Barcelona are scheduled for 1 June, after which the company will operate three weekly flights to the Finnish capital and two weekly flights to the famous destination in Spain. The very next day, Air Serbia airplanes will take off for no less than three new destinations, connecting Belgrade with Nice and Madrid with two weekly flights, and Belgrade and Kiev with three weekly flights. The first flight to Krasnodar will take place on 3 June, after which, airplanes will fly towards the city in the south of Russia three times per week. The introduction of Rijeka and Cairo flights, which the company will operate two times a week, is scheduled for 4 June. With its last inaugural flight on 21 June, from Belgrade to Zadar, Air Serbia will mark the establishment of the connection to this Croatian city, which will be operated by the company two times per week, during the summer season.
“With the introduction of no less than nine new routes in just one month, Air Serbia has once again confirmed it is the regional leader in commercial air transport. We are very happy because we managed to significantly improve the functionality of our network, through careful selection of destinations, and in accordance with our passengers’ desires and the strategic plans for further expansion. The new routes that are being launched are a result of hard work by numerous departments of the national airline, over several months, which makes us extremely proud”, said Air Serbia's CEO Duncan Naysmith.
By connecting the Serbian capital with nine new, strategically selected destinations and by expanding the Air Serbia international network to 49 destinations, our national airline provides strong support for our economy and drives tourism growth.
