BEG | Belgrade Nikola Tesla International Airport

Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport (Serbian: Аеродром Београд - Никола Тесла, Aerodrom Beograd - Nikola Tesla) (IATA: BEG, ICAO: LYBE) is Serbia's busiest airport, also known as Surčin (Сурчин), after a nearby Belgrade suburb.[1]

Named after Nikola Tesla, the airport is situated 12 km (7.5 mi) west,[2] of central Belgrade, in the Municipality of Surčin, surrounded by Syrmia's fertile lowlands. Passengers on the right hand side of planes descending from the east have a view of downtown Belgrade, especially the districts of Čukarica and Novi Beograd. In the past, when weather conditions were poor, aircraft were diverted to Niš Constantine the Great International Airport, which is 230 km (143 mi) south.

However, since late 2005 a CAT IIIb runway system has been introduced and aircraft can land and depart in the heaviest of fog, which in past years led to the airport’s closure in late December and early January.[3]

Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport is managed by the government-owned company Public enterpise “Aerodrom Nikola Tesla Beograd”. The company is a profitable public enterprise in Serbia with a recorded profit of 21.5 million Euros at the end of 2010.[4]

National flag carrier Jat Airways uses Belgrade Nikola Tesla as their hub airport. It is also one of the hub airports for low cost airline Wizz Air. Aviogenex charter airline, VIP airlines Air Pink, Jat Airways AVIO taxi, Prince Aviation and Pelikan Airways[5] also call the airport their home.[1]

In recent years, the airport has transformed itself into a transit destination for the former Yugoslav region with regular transit passengers coming from Bosnia, Macedonia and Montenegro.

T1+T2

T1- 2.5M capacity


Terminal 1 (T1) was the original and the only terminal when the airport was opened. The terminal handled domestic flights during the SFR Yugoslavia. Since the dissolution of the Union of Serbia and Montenegro in 2006, the gates of the terminal have been used for international flights by both international and domestic carriers.




T2- 5M capacity


Terminal 2 (T2) was constructed during the 1980s for the airport's growing passenger numbers. After 2 years of reconstruction, T2 reopened in May 2006 with 33 check in desks.[13] The terminal has a capacity of 5 million passengers.[14] The arrivals and departures areas of the terminal were completely reconstructed. The terminal has six gates, C1 to C6. The terminal contains airline offices, transfer desks and various retail shops.

2011 BEG overhaul begins

The business class lounge, used by all airlines offering a business class product to their passengers from Belgrade, is being expanded and modernised. Located near the A transit area gates, the lounge will be completed in September. Following its completion, work will begin on the expansion of both terminals 1 and 2. The expansion project entails the construction of a new floor above the current terminal buildings. It will be used by passengers arriving on incoming flights, thus separating them from the departing passengers.



Construction will take place in four phases. The first one will see the expansion of the C1-2 gate and the expansion of gates from A1 to A5. As a result, an extra 2.750 square metres will be added. Gates C3-4 and C5-6 will be expanded in the second phase. The third phase will involve the expansion of the A6 gate and onwards with the fourth and final phase seeing the construction of the completely new floor which will stretch over 4.900 square metres. Another apron will be built next to terminal 2 which will be able to handle four medium sized aircraft. Once the project is completed, a total of 9.900 square metres will be added and the terminal 1 air bridges will be replaced.



Belgrade Airport is one of Serbia’s most profitable state owned companies, turning a multi million Euro profit annually. The airport’s terminal 2 was spruced up several years ago, although the gate transit areas were left untouched.

When you look back what was built in the Central and Eatsern Europe before the fall of communism, this is a very respectable airport.

^ Nothing to worry about. They already purchased the land for the future development. Keep in mind, that airport had around 4M pax traffic back in the 1980s. So they have some back up plan.

some news

(Google translated)




"Fly Dubai" will soon establish a line to Belgrade

Low-cost airline "Fly Dubai" was submitted to the Directorate of Civil Aviation of Serbia an application to establish regular lines of Belgrade - Dubai from 1 November, Tanjug was told in the Directorate.

"Fly Dubai" was asked to fly on that route four times a week during the winter timetable.

- Will review the documentation and if all goes well permits could be issued in the next two weeks - said the representative of the Directorate-Milosavljevic Katarina Andric.

The airline has asked for, she says, setting up flight by plane "Boeing 737-800".

It is a solid airline with good younger generation fleet, said Andric-Milosavljevic, adding that the request for the line Belgrade - Dubai made ​​under the Agreement on Air saobaćaju with the United Arab Emirates, who in October 2009. signed on the Serbian government.

The agreement enabled the "Jat Airways" and five from the UAE aviokomanija establish an unlimited number of flights between the two countries.

Agreement on Air saobaćaju with the United Arab Emirates is very similar to the European Agreement on Open Skies.

- This is the first airline from the UAE, which has shown interest in setting up flights to Serbia-Andric-said Milosavljevic.

Currently from Serbia to the United Arab Emirates flights carried only "Jat Airways".
