^Not a bad start. They are expected to work with AA to get a feed on American end.

God bless Muslim brothers from Abu Dhabi!

Is Air Serbia going to use an Etihad air frame to the States?

No, Jet Airways from India more likely.

OK so if they're going to use one 332 for five New York rotations a week then they should have an extra two days to fly somewhere else as well. Any idea what other North American destinations they have planned, and I'm sure another wide body air frame will enter the fleet as if not more.

They could do an upgrade runs to CDG, ZRH, AUH and seaside runs to TIV. I am sure they will get a few more as Abu Dhabi gets their main terminal all done up. The demand will improve once their facilities improve just like in Doha.

I like them better over Anti-Serbian Europeans from the western EU. They came to Serbia to bring some bright future.

As you can see ASL is having trouble to get an OK for code-share flights, immagine when they apply for direct flights. A second reason is that JFK is one of the busiest aiports in the world and getting slots for it isn't an easy thing, so may be Newark will be a better choice (from my point of view). The third reason is that the company still don't have a plane to operate such route.

JFK is like a dinner table. Airlines come and go because quite a few fly there just for the status.

The "status" - this is what I'm talking about. Newark isn't a worse choice than JFK and it can give more sustainability for ASL if they fly to it instead of JFK.

I would say that a good year is ahead of us, but I also would not throw away 5% modest boost. Also BEG is missing other European airlines that will sooner or later come back such as BA, KL, AF and such.

JU is using the opportunity to test the market rather than fly the route for the status. Lets be realistic, Austrian is charging insane airfares while targeting the eastern European market as their bread and butter. The timing is good for JU to test the waters. I am sure Etihad will assist if there is profit to be made.

Newark would be suicide. In 2014, 26.234 pax flew between SRB and JFK and only 9.941 between SRB and EWR.

Plus both Jetblue and AA are possible partners from JFK, and both cooperate with Etihad. Newark is a Star Alliance fortress hub and ASL would get zero feed.

JFK has a lot more business pax, and they are the ones that bring in the money.

This is the ideal time for ASL to start longhaul. Oil is $50 per barrel. There is not enough transatlantic capacity. Yields are high. Demand is high.

I would say there is a good potential for a small long haul fleet. AUH-BEG is expected to grow and be flown with a bigger aircraft. It is a defacto longhaul destination for JU, and their signature route as of now. YYZ and ORD along with PEK would fit in that project as well. They could also do short runs to Montenegrin seaside between rotations.

One thing to keep in mind, there are a few airlines in the former Yugoslav region that simply will not survive by 2020. JU can benefit from it. Most of them are dead, but they keep selling their assets to stay alive.

There is a big space between Austrian, Turkish, and Aegean. Air Serbia could really capitalize on its position and become a leading carrier in Romania, Bulgaria, and Ex-Yu.

But there needs to be a lot more feed as well. ASL should increase their ATR fleet by at least 7 planes, and retire the three -200s because they are unreliable. The regional network needs to be radically expanded. A fleet of 10 ATR 72-500s would serve well.

No news that I know of, but I am confident that anything that goes public regarding DoT approval will be quickly posted here.

Qatar goes non-stop to BEG as of Spring 2016. There won't be a stop in Sofia in the future.
