Air Serbia is continuing to expand its network amid recovering demand with the airline to add more routes and frequencies. Furthermore, the carrier operated sixteen charters yesterday, including eight flights to Hurghada, five to Antalya, two to Bodrum and one to Chania. Over the coming weeks, the Serbian airline will restore operations to Milan and Barcelona, and will also increase frequencies to Paris, London and Ljubljana. From June 28, operations to the French capital will grow to twelve per week, while services to Heathrow will increase to four weekly rotations starting July 1. In addition, From June 21, frequencies to Ljubljana will grow to six weekly, increasing to daily from July 2.
Commenting on its operations, Air Serbia’s General Manager for Commercial and Strategy, Jiri Marek, said, “Given that demand for air travel is on the rise, we have decided to introduce additional flights to several popular destinations in our network and provide passengers with even better connectivity. We are very pleased with the increased demand and we are proud of the fact that we are currently the only airline that connects Belgrade with Ljubljana, as well as with Paris Charles De Gaulle Airport”. He added, “We remain focused on every opportunity that presents itself on the market, in order to be able to continue producing good results and to be able to offer our passengers the greatest possible selection of destinations during the vacation season”.
Last month, the carrier said it was “cautiously optimistic” about the upcoming peak summer travel period. At the time, Mr Marek noted, “We would like to position ourselves, and we are positioning ourselves, as a regional leader in the wider Balkan region, or let’s say the majority of ex-Yugoslavia. We have multiple scenarios which we are constantly developing and finetuning to be ready for the market opportunities to enter the niches and secure our strong position in the region”. This June, Air Serbia will operate over 1.650 scheduled flight operations, making it the biggest airline operating out of any single former Yugoslav market.
