Air Serbia has received a China permit and is ready for winter expansion

Air Serbia is preparing to announce the expansion of its destination network for the upcoming 2022/23 winter season, which starts on October 30. Last Friday, the airline received an operating license from China’s Civil Aviation Authority to launch a weekly passenger and cargo service from Belgrade to Tianjin as a temporary solution until connections to Beijing and Shanghai are possible once Covid-19 restrictions are lifted. In addition, the airline plans to begin seasonal winter operations to Havana, which is expected to start in December. In addition, the Serbian airline is expanding its European route network this winter. The new destinations will be successively put on sale in the coming weeks.

Air Serbia has started changing its flight schedule for the coming winter. In addition to planning additional flights to New York, which will operate between three and five times a week from late October to late March 2023, it has also rescheduled some of its flights to Zagreb. For the first time, the airline will offer night flights to the Croatian capital on select days, as well as an early morning return to Belgrade, to allow passengers better connectivity to its growing long-haul network. In addition, Air Serbia has offered winter flights on some of the new routes it inaugurated over the summer, including Valencia, Lyon, Bologna, Hanover and Nuremberg. Further adjustments are expected in the coming weeks.

The Serbian airline has also started teasing the arrival of its second wide-body aircraft, the Aibus A330-200, with advertisements at Belgrade Airport (pictured above). The 268-seat jet is scheduled to enter commercial service in late October on behalf of the airline. The Serbian carrier will also add an additional A320 jet to its fleet by the end of the year, while two more ATR72-600 turboprops will arrive between September and December, replacing the remaining older versions of the aircraft still in service. The airline has said it will add another five units to its ATR fleet, while the older turboprops, now being phased out, could be converted to cargo planes if ongoing feasibility studies show sufficient demand.
