Air Serbia’s Belgrade to Zagreb
On 12 December, Zagreb Airport welcomed with a special event the resumption of Air Serbia’s flights from Belgrade following a 23-year hiatus. While the sector will be served twice-daily utilising the airline’s ATR 72s, the inaugural flight was operated by Air Serbia’s A319 “Novak Đoković” aircraft, named after Serbia’s most famous tennis player and piloted by Air Serbia’s COO, Davor Mišeljić, while the First Officer was Biljana Savić, one of Air Serbia’s three female pilots.
- Air Serbia, formerly known as JAT Airways, increased its European offering with the addition of a new destination on 12 December – Zagreb (ZAG), from its Belgrade (BEG) hub. The 348-kilometre sector to the Croatian capital was resumed following a 23-year hiatus, and will be served twice-daily utilising the airline’s 62-seat ATR 72s. No other carrier serves this airport pair. Commenting on the route launch, Dane Kondić, CEO, Air Serbia, said: “Zagreb is Air Serbia’s fourth destination in Croatia, after Dubrovnik, Split and Pula, which have thus far operated as seasonal routes. Just this past summer, we were pleased to have carried close to 50,000 guests to these attractive summer destinations. With the introduction of Zagreb, our intention is to further develop year round inbound tourism, by offering our guests all of these destinations in Croatia, especially through our equity partner Etihad Airways.” See how Zagreb Airport’s FTWA compares to others from around the world.
