Looks like they have been sending their A321s to BEG. Moscow-Belgrade is very fragmented market due to JU-SU duopoly.

Serbia: Government waives debt of Air Serbia to Belgrade airport

The Serbian government has asked the Belgrade airport to forgive local carrier Air Serbia a debt of more than US$ 22 million, according to the Serbian Crime and Corruption Reporting Netork (KRIK). The debt constitutes all payments owed by the carrier to the airport for a one year period meaning the airline essentially used the airport for free for one year.
zairserbiaKRIK reports that on December 30 the Serbian government decided to help Air Serbia – which is half-owned by Etihad, a major, wealthy Middle Eastern carrier based in the United Arab Emirates. Air-Serbia owes more than 2,3 Serbian Dinars (US$ 22 million) to the Belgrade airport Nikola Tesla.
The government has an 83 per cent stake in the Nikola Tesla airport.
On January 18, KRIK published a government decision which waives the debt Air Serbia accumulated towards the Nikola Tesla airport between October 1, 2014, and September 18, 2015.
The decision was signed by the government's secretary general Novak Nedic. The space where the signiture of Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic should be is, however, empty.
The decision is still awaiting the signitures of the director of the Nikola Tesla airpot, Sasa Vlaisavljevic, and the director of Air Serbia Dane Kondic.
On August 1, 2013, the government privatized Serbia's national airline Jat Airways by selling 49 per cent of it's shares to Etihad, and rebranded it Air Serbia. Jat Airways was proceeded by Jugoslovenki Aerotransport (JAT), the national carrier of Yugoslavia formed in 1927, and one of the world's oldest airlines.
However, according to parts of the contract which were published by the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN), the Serbian government paid significantly more for it's 51 per cent stake than Etihad did for it's 49 per cent. BIRN reported that, in 2013 only, the government agreed to invest more than US$ 90 million into the company, while Etihad was required to invest US$ 40 million. Apart from this, the government agreed to take over more than US$ 230 million of debt Jat Airways had accumulated. The full details of this contract have never been revealed.
According to KRIK, these negotiations were headed by Sinisa Mali, who was an advisor to Aleksandar Vucic at the time. Mali would later become mayor of Belgrade and the head of Air Serbia's board of directors.
Today, Mali held a press conference following KRIK's revelations. When KRIK journalists asked about what Air Serbia's financial condition would be had the government not decided to forgive the debt, Mali said the company would not even exist.
"Serbia would be without it's national airline company, we would not have what we have today, and the Belgrade airport would probably be the lowest ranked airport in the region. This is because without a national airline company you also don't have growth of the national airport," he added.
Mali's comments are very different from his political mentor Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic. Vucic has said on the record that Air Serbia is a very profitable company. According to Mali, the airline made $4.4 million in 2015. It is not clear if that is with or without the payments to the airport.
According to KRIK, this is also not the first time the government decided to wave the debts of Air Serbia towards the Nikola Tesla airport. In the end of 2014, the government decided to forgive debts as high as 1,5 billion Serbian Dinars (US$ 17,6 million) which Air Serbia owed the airport.
The government has announced it will privatize the airport in 2016. At least one economic journalist believes this announcement is related.
"We can conclude that someone is delibirately lowering the value of the airport so that someone could financially benefit in the sale," said Misa Brkic – a contributor to the local Pescanik news portal.

Passengers down -5.8% in January. That's what happens when more than half the traffic comes from 1 airline. When that airline is in trouble, the airport itself is in trouble.

Belgrade Airport passes TSA checks

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA), a component of the United States Department of Homeland Security, has completed its evaluation of Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport. Its outcome will have a strong impact on whether Air Serbia will be granted a permit to launch flights to New York commencing this June. The TSA concluded that both the airport and the Serbian Civil Aviation Directorate have worked hard to put into place an effective aviation security system. The TSA determines whether foreign airports that provide service to the United States are maintaining and carrying out effective security measures. The Administration carried out its inspection of Belgrade Airport throughout last week. "Nonstop flights to the United States will be an excellent opportunity for Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport to position itself again in this part of Europe as an important transfer hub", the airport said in a statement issued yesterday. It added, "This is an excellent opportunity for the development of trade, economy and tourism for both Belgrade and Serbia". Following its positive assessment, Air Serbia is expected to be issued a final permit for its services to the United States in the coming days. The airline will officially commence sales for five weekly flights to New York next Thursday morning.

The TSA assessed the effectiveness of security measures at Belgrade Airport using select aviation security standards and recommended practices adopted by ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation). ICAO standards and recommended practices address operational issues at an airport, such as ensuring that passengers and baggage are properly screened and that unauthorised individuals do not have access to restricted areas at the airport. ICAO standards and recommended practices also address non-operational issues, such as whether a foreign government, in this case Serbia, has implemented a national civil aviation security program for regulating security procedures at its airports and whether airport officials implementing security controls go through background investigations, are appropriately trained and are certified according to the government’s national civil aviation security program.

Along with conducting an airport assessment, the same TSA inspection team also conducted an inspection of Air Serbia to ensure that the carrier is in compliance with TSA security requirements. TSA inspectors examined compliance with applicable security requirements, including TSA-approved security programs, emergency amendments to the security programs and security directives. During the inspection, inspectors reviewed applicable security manuals, procedures and records. Furthermore, they interviewed the carrier's station personnel and observed employees processing passengers on at least one flight, from passenger check-in until the flight departed the gate, to ensure that the it is in compliance with applicable requirements.

Steady growth and lower flights means load factor is increasing

After announcing JFK, looks like KBP, OHD, PRN and PEK will be launched this year.

Another widebody, this time from IKA Tehran, Iran arrived with 200 tourists. 2016 should be a good year for widebody airframes. One more flight to go for the end of March.

I still think that PEK is a winner for JU. It will probably bring more cash over any North American destination due to Serbia-China trade relations.
