^Yup. TIV/TGD flights being affected. Maybe Nis Airport may pick up a slack. They started 2012 with 25% increase.

I think Canadians played some sneaky moves whenever Jat was about to restart Toronto, New York and later Chicago...

The DC10 got the new paint/C Check in 1997 and it was ready to return to North American sky. At that time, Canadians claimed that there will be some potential asylum seekers. That was the very first attempt. Here is the picture of freshly painted DC10 at Zurich airport;



Than there was an issue in early 2000.

Than 2005 came around and the DC10 had to be sold/retired. Guess what, Jat did not give up. In 2006 they found ILC owned 767-200ER and struck a deal to lease the aircraft if USA approved FAA cat 1 rating. Canadians already struck a deal for flights to go ahead. Here is the picture of the plane that was about to be painted in Jat colours.





The flights were loaded and went on sale. Toronto was planned to be served twice per week, as well as JFK and later ORD. Americans pulled the plug in the last minute.

An other set of ten jetways to be installed on apron "A".



Construction work on the modernisation and expansion of Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport is in full swing. Currently, work is being carried out on the A gate departure lounges and transit areas. By mid summer the airport will have completed the expansion and reconstruction of its C1-2 and A1 to A6 gates. As a result, an extra 2.750 square metres will be added. After the summer rush, expansion work will begin on gates C3-4 and C5-6, the airport says. Air bridges at the A gates, which belong to terminal one, are also to be replaced. An additional new floor stretching over 4.900 square metres will be built above the current terminal two building with construction to begin next year so as to separate arriving and departing passengers.


Construction work at terminal two

Work has also begun on the expansion of the terminal two security and passport control area. Due to a big increase in passenger numbers, long queues are now a constant at the airport, especially during the morning rush hour period. The “Aviokarta.net” portal reports that new x-ray and body scanner machines will be added to cut waiting time, with Belgrade becoming the first airport in the former Yugoslavia to use specialised shoe scanners. The new technology was first rolled out in the United States in 2010. They should cut down on queuing times as the machines do not require passengers to take their shoes off for security checks. Work on the security and passport control area will be completed by the start of the 2012 summer season, on March 25. This has resulted in Jat Airways having to temporarily move its check in operations to terminal one.

Within the next three years 52.985.000 Euros will be invested into the airport

Air One Milan Malpensa-Belgrade:

AP540 0730MXP-0920BEG 246
AP541 1000BEG-1200MXP 246

Some competition to Jat Airways.

got the information

Soon in Belgrade
Alitalia’s low cost subsidiary Air One will launch flights from Milan to the Serbian capital, ending Jat Airways’ monopoly on the service. Flights from Milan Malpensa Airport to Belgrade will launch on September 18 and will operate three times per week with an Airbus A320. Flight details can be found here. Air One’s new service will compete directly against Jat Airways, which plans to operate six weekly flights onboard its Boeing 737-300 this coming summer season. Alitalia will continue to code share on Jat Airways’ services to both Milan and Rome.

Air One does not operate flights to other former Yugoslav republics. Last September the airline scheduled services to Zagreb, however, due to poor ticket sales, the planned flights were cancelled. Air One will expand this summer as it adds new destinations to its route network besides Belgrade such as Munich, Sofia, Brussels, Warsaw, Amsterdam, Bucharest, Saint Petersburg, Barcelona, Istanbul, Kiev and London Gatwick.

Air One merged with national carrier Alitalia in January 2009, though it continues to operate as a separate brand. The two use an integrated booking system. Air One operates a fleet of seven Airbus A320s, with a further three arriving soon. Some of its aircraft have a high density cabin layout of up to 180 seats while others have a somewhat smaller capacity.
