Air Serbia announces Oslo, soon after Wizz Air; now, 3 airlines will operate Belgrade – Oslo-area
Air Serbia has added Belgrade to Oslo, with its first flight taking off on 16 July.
This comes a week after Wizz Air announced its new Belgrade routes, including to Oslo Torp, which will start two days after Air Serbia’s new service.
And it follows Norwegian’s lower-than-usual frequency before it is ramped up from October.
Last year, Belgrade – Oslo had around 50,000 two-way point-to-point passengers, including about 7,000 flying indirectly. Only Norwegian flew non-stop.

Air Serbia’s new Oslo service will be operated by 144-seat A319s.
Given this route’s timings, OAG Connections Analyser shows that two-way connectivity over Belgrade, with competitive connecting times, will be available to the following eight destinations, which collectively had around 95,000 passengers to/from Oslo last year.
