- Air Serbia, the former JAT Airways, continued to expand its European network with two new routes on 10 December. Both services are operated daily from the airline’s main base at Belgrade (BEG) to Bucharest (OTP) and Ljubljana (LJU). The two airport-pairs are operated by the carrier’s 62-seat ATR 72s and face direct competition on both services. The 460-kilometre sector to Romania’s capital will face direct competition from TAROM’s daily services, while the 483-kilometre route to Slovenia’s capital will be flown in direct competition with Adria Airways’ five weekly flights. Commenting on the launch of the service to Slovenia, Dane Kondić, Air Serbia’s CEO, said: “We are delighted to announce the addition of Ljubljana to the Air Serbia flight network, a move that will create significant benefits for our passengers, as well as the economies of Serbia and Slovenia. While we believe that there is great potential for tourism flows between the two countries with this new route, business and leisure travellers alike can now take advantage of convenient daily flights.”
