FAA Begins Final Serbia Evaluation

Monday, March 24, 2014

http://exyuaviation.blogspot.com/201...l#comment-form

Quote:
Today in Belgrade, the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will begin its final assessment of Serbia’s aviation authorities which could see the country upgraded from its current category two status to category one, paving way for scheduled flights between the two countries, impossible under the present rating. The FAA will assess whether the Serbian Civil Aviation Directorate meets US and international safety standards and whether it has adequate infrastructure for international aviation safety oversight as defined by international standards. The evaluation will last seven days. Serbia is optimistic it will be granted the category one status it lost in 2004.

Serbia’s Assistant Minister for Air Transport, Milutin Popović, says, “We are ready to obtain a category one status and, after this check, we could receive it quickly if the FAA inspectors are content with their findings. We anticipate a positive outcome”. One of the country’s major hurdles in obtaining a category one ranking was the absence of an independent air accidents investigation authority. Serbia will form one this year. Last February, during its preliminary checks, the FAA found that regulations in Serbia‘s air sector are in line with international standards.

The last time Serbia was linked with the US was in 2004 when Uzbekistan Airways operated flights from Belgrade to the Big Apple. Air Serbia has said it plans to launch transatlantic flights in 2016. Last year, Serbia’s Deputy Prime Minister Aleksandar Vučić said that Etihad Airways’ CEO, James Hogan, confirmed plans for the Serbian carrier to operate flights to Chicago and Toronto in 2016 with Airbus A330 aircraft. However, Mr. Vučić added he was pushing for transatlantic flights to be launched later this year, in particular to New York. The last time a Serbian carrier applied to operate flights to the US was in August 2003 when Jat Airways submitted its application to provide “nonstop scheduled flights of persons, property and mail two times per week between Belgrade and New York and Chicago using a 271 seat DC-10-30 aircraft”. The FAA never responded to the application.

Croatia is currently the only country in the former Yugoslavia with a category one status, which it obtained on January 24, 2011. Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Montenegro, Slovenia and Kosovo must be assessed again since, in the past four years, they either did not have direct flights to the United States, have no codeshare agreements with US carriers or have no significant interaction with the FAA. However, most countries have inked an Air Transport Agreement with the US, designed to promote air travel between the signatory parties. Serbia, as the legal successor to Yugoslavia, last signed an Air Transport Memorandum of Understanding with the United States on June 28, 1989. Since then, no other form of bilateral cooperation in the field of aviation has been made between the two countries.

Some good news for BEG.

Turkish Cargo is aiming to serve once a week with their A330-200F. That is pending government approval as we speak.

KLM-AF and British could be back for the Winter season. That is just inside speculation for now.

Also we had a Etihad divert for the medical emergency with their B777-3000ER. So we should get some pictures soon.

For now, Etihad 77W

Star Alliance losing ground in Belgrade
Star Alliance member airlines hit by competition




The world’s first and largest global airline alliance, headed by Germany’s Lufthansa, has been hit by a steep passenger decline on its flights to and from Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport, as the group faces indirect competition from Wizz Air and a much more competitive Serbian national carrier. Star Alliance plays an important role in air transport in the former Yugoslavia. Its members operate the largest amount of flights to and from the region and carry the greatest amount of passengers. Star Alliance also boasts two EX-YU airlines as its members - Adria Airways and Croatia Airlines. While the alliance has been strengthening its hold at some airports, such as Sarajevo, the reverse has occurred in Belgrade. In the first two months of 2014 the alliance increased its operations to the city by 7% but has been recording a passenger decline since December last year. In January and February the group handled 104.139 passengers on its services to and from Belgrade.


Adria Airways was the first airline to buckle under pressure and suspend services to the Serbian capital after facing competition for only three months. However, the biggest decline in passengers has been recorded amongst members of the Lufthansa Group which include Austrian, Swiss International Air Lines and Germanwings. Together, the airlines recorded an average 21.5% decline in numbers. Overall, the biggest looser amongst Star Alliance members so far this year is Austrian with its figures plunging by 24%. It is followed by Germanwings with a loss of 23.9%, Aegean Airlines (operated by Olympic) down 22% and Swiss decreasing by 12.8%.

15.738 ▼ 24.0

The losses Star Alliance has incurred over the past few months are in stark contrast to last year, when the group recorded strong passenger growth on its Belgrade flights. With exception to Olympic, which was not a member of Star Alliance last year prior to its merger with Aegean, all other group members outperformed Jat Airways on competing routes in 2013. This year’s decline comes on top of an additional airline from the group, LOT, operating flights to the Serbian capital, which was not the case last winter. An exception to the declining trend is Turkish Airlines, which has seen its numbers grow 35% on last year.

22.754 ▲ 35.8

Passengers have so far been reaping the rewards from the increased competition with many Star Alliance members significantly reducing their prices on competing routes. It remains to be seen how the group of airlines will respond this summer to the increased pressure and losses it has faced so far. TAP Portugal will become the newest Star Alliance member to operate flights to Belgrade, with services to be launched on July 2. Turkish Airlines and LOT will operate more flights than last year while Croatia Airlines will also add an additional flight to its seasonal services to Belgrade. .
to Air Serbia and ME3.

Those numbers are great for Air Serbia, Etihad, and Wizz. Overall passenger numbers are increasing, but Lufthansa group is going down.

Although these numbers also make me skeptical about the return of BA, and AF-KLM. Why would they return now? Now is the worst time, they would feel great competition on their routes because of Air Serbia and Wizz.

Well, BEG is aiming for 5M this year, and they want a slice of that market.

Btw British Airways improved their long haul service/product with some 787s and A380s, so they could snag some Canada/Usa bound passengers.

We used to almost exclusively fly BA from YYZ to BEG.

It's a shame they cut that route.

On the other hand, it's probably going to get worse in the future so better get in now before there is little chance of success. But I somehow doubt BA will be coming back. Hope I'm wrong.

In honor of Air Serbia's facebook page reaching 100.000 likes, I will post some photos and a link to a review of Air Serbia business class.









Here is a great review for Air Serbia's business class. Unfortunatly, the review is in Swedish, but the translation is rather clear.

with the current growth of 30% BEG will reach only 4.6M PAX, but still the 5M mark is very near so aren't there any plans on building a new terminal?

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.

^Yes, the capacity of the airport is technically about 7,5 million, but in real life the capacity is much lower than that because the airport does not have uniform utilization during certain months of the year and certain times of the day. The airport needs capacity to cover the peek demand, not the average demand.

This summer, especially August, it will be crazy during the morning and evening waves. If the airport management was competent, they would be able to predict this and they would be scrambling to build a terminal before 2016 summer season, but unfortunately they are wasting time. This is why I am hoping that Etihad gets a concession over the airport, because it is in their interest to make something out of it.



This IL-76 was at BEG yesterday:
