TAP adding more flights to Belgrade this winter




TAP Portugal, which launched services from Lisbon to Belgrade last week, will continue operating to the Serbian capital throughout the winter season with additional flights, as well as a stop in Budapest on selected days. The Portuguese carrier, linking the two cities for the first time in history, is satisfied with the route’s performance and advanced bookings so far. It will introduce an additional flight between the two at the start of the 2014/15 winter season, from October 26. As a result, the airline will operate a total of four weekly flights between Lisbon and Belgrade, with services running each Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Triangle flights via Budapest will be introduced on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Passengers flying out from the Portuguese capital to Belgrade on Tuesdays will endure an intermediate stop in Budapest, while the return service will operate direct from the Serbian capital. On the other hand, flights on Wednesdays departing Belgrade will run via Budapest as the airline looks to optimise the use of its aircraft during the slow winter months.


Discussing the new route, the Portuguese Ambassador to Serbia, Augusto José Pestana Saraiva Peixoto, says, “The new route between Belgrade and Lisbon will contribute to improved political, economic and other ties and bring together two nations which are similar in many ways. As a result of this new service, Portuguese investors will come to Serbia”. The inaugural flight from Belgrade to Lisbon saw 117 passengers on board the carrier’s Airbus A319, which has the capacity to seat 132 people.




During the winter months, TAP Portugal will continue to operate flights between Lisbon and Belgrade with its A319 jet. The carrier has finalised its winter timetable and tickets are already on sale through the airline’s website. TAP won’t enjoy fifth freedom rights between Budapest and Belgrade, meaning it cannot sell tickets between the two cities and thus join Air Serbia and Belarus’ Belavia which already operate on the route. TAP has a very limited presence in the former Yugoslavia with its only other destination in the region being Zagreb, with the flights operated via Bologna in Italy.

I think Serbia and Romania used to build this bird, but I could be wrong. Probably the best five euros you can spend on a aviation museum ticket.

The plane is a Soko J-22 Orao. It was designed in collaboration with Romania.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soko_J-22_Orao

The Museum of Aviation is very good. It has a surprising number of very rare warbirds, such a a BF109, P-47 Thunderbolt, Hawker Hurricane, Supermarine Spitfire, and a YAK-3.

I urge anyone visiting Belgrade to visit the museum. It is walking distance from the airport terminal.

Edit: I took these pictures of old, abandoned Oraos near Uzice in 2010. They were just abandoned on the side of the road. Engines and some other useful bits were stripped.

That museum should be better integrated with "Nikola Tesla" airport, so those who are waiting for connecting could visit also. It sure would make a financial impact and possible better maintenance of the museum.

July 2014 traffic numbers as expected to be around 540 000.

Crossing 500K is a new milestone for BEG.

Amazing result. Last year in July it was 432.780 pax. August was last year 441.088 so I think august will mean closer to the 600.000 pax mark (i will guess 565.000) which will again a huge result.

By the looks of things, Belgrade should be getting its first scheduled passenger widebody flight by the end of the year, after a decade. Emirates starts OTP in september, operating daily with their 3 class Airbus A330-200.

EK113 DXB OTP 0755 1205 A332 (5H 10m)
EK114 OTP DXB 1650 2230 A332 (4h 40m)

The 3 class config A332 seats 12 in F, 42 in J and 182 in Y with a total seat config of 237 seats.

I would assume that in the next month or 2 we should see a schedule for BEG. It is likely that flyDubai will then cancel its flights to BEG. FlyDubai btw in the december/january period schedules extra flights for BEG due to demand.

http://cumajungistewardesa.ro/exclus...i-zbor-ek-113/

I believe HY was the last airline to operate scheduled widebody service to BEG on their B763 flying TAS-BEG-JFK.

Eh... I don't think that EK to BEG this year is very likely. Belgrade is very well connected to the Middle East with Qatar Airways, FlyDubai, and Etihad/Air Serbia. The market is saturated.

I think that it is much more likely for Etihad to either upguage their current flights, or perhaps add a second daily flight. Apparently Etihad saw a 95% load factor in BEG from Jul 31 to Aug 3 according to Aviokarta.net.
