First time here... and I hope it can get a few wide-bodied aircraft to restart its long-haul operations formerly operated by its predecessor, JAT.

2015 promises to be a great year for BEG. It should easily surpass 5 million passengers.
There are also plans to construct an additional floor over terminal II. There is also talk of placing the entire airport under concession.
As well we may see widebodies as Air Serbia is considering launching flights to ORD, JFK, and YYZ.

Lets just hope that further works gets carried away soon. The terminal is in big need of more floor space.

With more and more passengers using the airport, many facilities will need to be improved such as an automated luggage sorting facility etc.

It will be interesting to see if Air Serbia can bring another 10 destinations next year as they did in their first year

They had, and still have, some issues with consistency and keeping to a strict schedule, but it has gotten a lot better as time has gone by.

Overall I think there is a lot of potential.

Capacity jumped 74% to 3.3 billion ASKs. Load factor rose 3 points to 67% from 64% in 2013, the last year of operation as JAT.

Air Serbia announces plans to start non-stop service to New York JFK in June 2016
  • First non-stop flights between Serbia and the United States since 1992
  • New air-link to deepen cultural and commercial ties between Serbia and US
  • First wide-body aircraft and long-haul operation for Air Serbia since its launch in 2013
  • Service to boost Belgrade Airport's role as leading hub for the Balkans region
  • Announcement enhances Air Serbia's position as region's leading airline

Air Serbia, the national airline of the Republic of Serbia, has announced plans to launch flights from Belgrade (BEG) to New York (JFK) in June 2016.

Subject to government and regulatory approval, it will be the first non-stop service between Serbia and the United States in 24 years, to provide a new air-link between the two countries which share deep cultural and commercial ties.

New York JFK will be Air Serbia's first long-haul destination since its launch two years ago and the aircraft will be the first wide-body to enter the fleet of the Belgrade-based airline.

According to recent surveys there are more than 200,000 people of Serbian ethnicity living in the United States, including New York and Chicago, which has the biggest Serbian diaspora in the United States, and the number increases significantly, when including other Balkan countries.

Aleksandar Vučić, Prime Minister of Serbia, said: "The launch of non-stop flights between Belgrade and New York in June next year will be a hugely proud and significant moment in the short history of Air Serbia, demonstrating the growth and ambitions of the airline. We cannot underestimate the positive impact the new service will have on the people and businesses of Serbia as we open this air-bridge to the United States, which is home to so many Serbian communities who will now have a unique opportunity to fly to Serbia with the national airline".

Siniša Mali, Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Air Serbia, and Mayor of Belgrade, said: "The introduction of non-stop flights‎ between Belgrade and New York is another milestone in the evolution of Belgrade as a regional hub and the growth of Air Serbia. The New York service will bring large numbers of business and leisure travellers from the United States to Serbia providing a significant boost to the economy".

James Hogan, Vice Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Air Serbia and President and Chief Executive Officer of Etihad Airways, said: "In addition to creating a safe and commercially-sustainable airline, one of the pledges we made when Air Serbia was launched in 2013 was to re-connect Serbia with major Serbian population centres around the world. We are naturally delighted, therefore, to announce the launch of the New York service which, as well as enhancing business and cultural ties between the two countries, will provide a major boost to inbound tourism to Serbia. The new service shows one of the main strengths of Etihad Airways Partners. In launching this trans-Atlantic service, Air Serbia can call upon the expertise and resources of pilot and cabin crew training, as well as fleet and engineering support".

Dane Kondić, Chief Executive Officer of Air Serbia, said: "The launch of the Belgrade-New York non-stop service is a fantastic example of the positive impact of the Air Serbia strategic plan, which is progressing well and continues to be on-track to meet and surpass its targets. We have been asked for many months when a new United States service will start, and we are pleased now to reveal the destination and intended launch date and look forward to welcome guests onboard our flights between Belgrade and New York, offering them our world-famous Serbian cuisine and hospitality as they cross the Atlantic".

The five flights-a-week service will be operated by a leased two cabin A330-200 aircraft. Air Serbia is currently considering lease options with Etihad Airways Partner airlines as well as with other external companies.

The Air Serbia New York flight schedule will offer guests convenient connections from many of the airline's regional destinations across the Balkans and Southern Europe, including Istanbul, Athens, and Tirana.


Air Serbia celebrates record-breaking third quarter results with double-digit passenger and cargo growth

Performance compared to Q3, 2014:
  • Total operating revenues increase by 26 per cent from EUR 68m to EUR 86m
  • Total passenger numbers grew by 11 per cent from 820,453 to 913,135
  • 1 billion Available Seat Kilometres
  • Aviolet charter operation carried nearly 100,000 passengers
  • On-time performance increased 8 percentage points from 72 per cent to 80 per cent
  • Cargo achieved a 30 per cent growth, having carried a total of 865 tonnes

Air Serbia today reported continued improvement in its financial and operating performance recording total operating revenues of EUR 86 million for the third quarter of 2015.

The figure represents an increase of 26 per cent over the same period in 2014, achieved by growth in passenger and cargo numbers during the 2015 summer months.

The Belgrade-based airline's total passenger numbers increased to 913,135 between July and September this year, 11 per cent higher than the 820,453 passengers for the same period in 2014.

August 2015 was a record-breaking month in the history of Air Serbia with a total of 319,263 passengers travelling with the airline, a seven per cent increase compared to the same period last year.

Air Serbia's passenger carrying capacity, measured in Available Seat Kilometres (ASK), stood at 1 billion by the end of Q3 2015, an increase of three per cent over the same period last year.

Aviolet, Air Serbia's charter brand launched in May 2014, operated more than 400 flights during the third quarter of 2015 and flew nearly 100,000 passengers to various summer destinations in Turkey, Greece, Egypt and Italy, among others.

Air Serbia Cargo also achieved a 30 per cent growth over 2014 carrying 865 tonnes of freight during the third quarter of 2015.

Aleksandar Vučić, Prime Minister of the Government of the Republic of Serbia said: "We are pleased to report that Air Serbia continues steadfastly on its growth course, achieving strong financial results and at the same time taking giant steps in introducing industry-leading innovations, building an offering that is comparable to much larger and more experienced global airlines in a very short period of time. Air Serbia's financial and operational achievements further strengthen the position of our national airline in the long term not only as the leading carrier in the region, but as one of the leading airlines in Europe".

Siniša Mali, Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Air Serbia, and Mayor of Belgrade, said: "When Air Serbia was launched two years ago it was a landmark moment because it saved the national airline which was on the verge of bankruptcy and since then the airline has gone from strength to strength. Air Serbia now sets the standards for corporate governance and delivering best practice in Serbia and the Q3 2015 results are further proof that the strategy is a successful one".

James Hogan, Vice Chairman of Air Serbia and President and Chief Executive Officer of Etihad Airways, said: "The third-quarter results clearly indicate that the turnaround strategy is working and Air Serbia is on the right track to duplicate the success seen in 2014 and deliver robust operational and financial results in its second full year of operation".

Chief Executive Officer of Air Serbia, Dane Kondić, said: "We continue to grow not just in revenues and passenger numbers, but more importantly also in reputation, performance and maturity, emerging as a regional industry leader in a relatively short period of time. We will continue to focus on all aspects of the travel experience by enhancing our products and services, providing even more choice, convenience and enjoyment for our guests. We are confident that this approach will drive our continued success".

Other key Air Serbia highlights of Q3 2015 include:
  • Strengthening of codeshare agreement with Etihad Airways Partner airline, Alitalia, placing the JU code on an additional 21 routes operated by the Italian national carrier
  • Introduction of web check-in for guests travelling from Belgrade and six other points of origin to check in for their flight from any web-enabled device
  • Opening of the Air Serbia Premium Lounge at Belgrade Airport, the first airline-owned and operated lounge in Serbia, providing a superior experience for premium guests
  • The launch of Air Serbia Wi-Fly, initiating the gradual implementation of mobile and internet connectivity across its entire fleet of Airbus passenger aircraft
  • Introduction of Euro Sky Pass, a new Business Class and Economy Class fare program which provides flexibility and freedom to long-haul travelers arriving in Serbia

Air Serbia top carrier among Ex-Yugoslav airlines...

Quote:
Friday, November 20, 2015
EX-YU flag carriers handle over 5 million passengers
EX-YU national airlines post strong Q1 - Q3 results

The national carriers of the former Yugoslavia handled over five million passengers during the first three quarters of the year, with all four recording passenger growth over the January - September period when compared to 2014. Air Serbia remains the busiest, while Adria Airways also saw double digit growth. The Serbian national carrier handled 2.03 travellers during the first nine months, an increase of 15% compared to the same period last year. The airline's busiest route was Paris with 126.243 travellers (up 4.6%), followed by Zurich, Podgorica, Moscow and Tivat. Of those, all saw passenger growth with exception to Tivat, where figures were slightly down. Nevertheless, Air Serbia handled its second-millionth passenger early in September this year, while the milestone was reached on October 31 in 2014.

Croatia Airlines welcomed 1.456.997 travellers on board its aircraft during the nine-month period, an increase of 1.1% on 2014. Of those, 369.066 travelled on domestic flights, representing a decrease of 1.9%, while 1.035.741 passengers boarded scheduled international services, up 2.6% on 2014. The remaining 61.190 passengers flew on charter flights, an increase of 5.8%. Charters accounted for just 4% of all operations. The average cabin load factor stood at 70.2%, up 0.6% on the same period last year. The airline upped its capacity by 2.3%. Croatia Airlines handled its millionth passenger of the year on July 27, one day ahead of 2014. The carrier anticipates its end-of-year passenger growth will amount to 3%.

Adria Airways recorded double digit passenger growth during the first three quarters of the year by handling 1.090.034 passengers, an increase of 13.4% compared to the same period last year. Of those, 904.731 travellers were carried on scheduled services, up 15.1%, while the remaining 185.303 were carried on charter flights, representing an increase of 5.7%. The growth was fuelled by the launch of new routes from Ljubljana and the development of the carrier's bases outside of Slovenia. The airline's average cabin load factor stood at 69%, which is down 2% on the same period in 2014. Adria says the decline comes due to the utilisation of larger aircraft. The Slovenian carrier is satisfied with its performance on all of its routes with exception to Moscow, where it saw a sharp decline in passenger figures as a result of a volatile rouble and western-imposed sanctions on the country.

Montenegro Airlines registered 461.000 passengers over the first nine months, an increase of 3.6% on 2014. The greatest passenger growth was seen on flights between Podgorica and Ljubljana, up 49%, followed by the Danish (+46%), German (+45%) and UK markets (+25%). Passenger numbers on scheduled services were up 3%, while charter flights saw a 17% boost, primarily due to a series of leisure flights from Germany, namely Leipzig, Stuttgart, Dusseldorf and Hanover, which ran throughout the summer until earlier this month.

Air Serbia to New York from June 2016

Air Serbia today officially announced it will launch its first long haul transatlantic flights from June 1, 2016. The carrier will run five weekly flights from Belgrade to New York with a leased two-cabin Airbus A330-200 aircraft. "The launch of non-stop flights between Belgrade and New York in June next year will be a hugely proud and significant moment in the short history of Air Serbia, demonstrating the growth and ambitions of the airline. We cannot underestimate the positive impact the new service will have on the people and businesses of Serbia as we open this air-bridge to the United States, which is home to so many Serbian communities who will now have a unique opportunity to fly to Serbia with the national airline", the Serbian Prime Minister, Aleksandar Vučić said. He noted that the A330-200 will likely be leased from an Indian carrier (presumably Etihad Airways Partner - Jet Airways). The President and CEO of Etihad Airways, as well as Vice-Chairman of the Air Serbia Supervisory Board, James Hogan, said, “In addition to creating a safe and commercially-sustainable airline, one of the pledges we made when Air Serbia was launched in 2013 was to re-connect Serbia with major Serbian population centres around the world. We are naturally delighted, therefore, to announce the launch of the New York service which, as well as enhancing business and cultural ties between the two countries, will provide a major boost to inbound tourism to Serbia. The new service shows one of the main strengths of Etihad Airways Partners. In launching this transatlantic service, Air Serbia can call upon the expertise and resources of pilot and cabin crew training, as well as fleet and engineering support”.
The CEO of Air Serbia, Dane Kondić, said the airline will offer five weekly flights to New York since the airline will initially lease a single A330-200. He noted that passengers will be offered flights via Berlin and Dusseldorf with Air Serbia's codeshare partner Air Berlin on the remaining two days when Air Serbia isn't be operating services with its own metal. He noted that the airline is expected to receive a permit for the flights from US authorities "any day now". “The launch of the Belgrade - New York non-stop service is a fantastic example of the positive impact of the Air Serbia strategic plan, which is progressing well and continues to be on-track to meet and surpass its targets. We have been asked for many months when a new United States service will start, and we are pleased now to reveal the destination and intended launch date and look forward to welcome guests onboard our flights between Belgrade and New York, offering them our world-famous Serbian cuisine and hospitality as they cross the Atlantic”, Mr Kondić noted. The transatlantic flights will be scheduled so as to offer quick connections for passengers from Southeast Europe and the Balkans.

Today's announcement came just over two years since Jat Airways' successor was launched and almost a year to the day the Serbian carrier made a surprise announcement it was introducing double daily flights from Belgrade to Zagreb, reconnecting the two cities with a scheduled air service for the first time in over 23 years. This year, Air Serbia introduced a sixth ATR 72 aircraft to its fleet, opened its new premium lounge at Belgrade Airport, began the roll out of its on board wireless Internet service and introduced on-line check-in. Most recently, the carrier began a wide-scale multi-platform advertising campaign across the region, as well as CNN International, to promote its new services. Last week, Air Serbia's part-owner, Etihad Airways, inked a Memorandum of Understating for Commercial Cooperation with Montenegro Airlines, which will see the carrier cooperate more closely with Etihad's partners, including its Serbian counterpart.

Air Serbia's US permit process advances

The United States Department of Transportation (DoT) has granted Air Serbia rights to operate flights to the United States with its own aircraft and crew yesterday evening but will decide on the airline's permit request after it completes the FAA 129 certification process it is currently undertaking. Furthermore, the DoT has granted the Serbian carrier rights to codeshare on Air Berlin flights from Germany to the United States. Speaking to EX-YU Aviation News, Caitlin Harvey, from the Department, explains, "Today we granted Air Serbia’s amended exemption request to conduct own-metal US services. We concurrently granted Air Berlin’s request for codeshare authority to display Air Serbia’s code on certain Air Berlin Germany - US services. So, Air Serbia now has economic authority to operate both via its own metal and via codeshare. Before beginning any own metal services, it must complete the FAA 129 certification process".

On November 17, the DoT limited Air Serbia's operations to the United States exclusively to codeshare and wet-lease flights, preventing it from operating services with its own aircraft. However, this obstacle has now been overcome. "On November 17, we granted Air Serbia’s exemption request to serve the United States, but limited the authority to its codeshare arrangement with Air Berlin. These operations involved the display of the Air Serbia code on Air Berlin metal", Ms Harvey says. "Soon after we took the above action, Air Serbia began its FAA 129 certification process and requested the amendment of its exemption to remove the codeshare/wet-lease restriction so that it may serve the United States with its own metal. In addition, it requested that we take action on its pending permit request". The Serbian carrier intends to launch five weekly flights from Belgrade to New York's JFK Airport from June next year with an Airbus A330-200 aircraft.

Air Serbia has stated that it initially intends to maintain services to the United States by placing its “JU” designator code on flights operated by Air Berlin from Dusseldorf to New York and from Berlin to New York, Chicago and Miami, which it has been cleared to do. Furthermore, the carrier has said that, once it launches its own five weekly services, passengers will be able to use these codeshare flights the other two days of the week. Air Serbia's CEO, Dane Kondić, previously said, “The launch of the Belgrade - New York non-stop service is a fantastic example of the positive impact of the Air Serbia strategic plan, which is progressing well and continues to be on-track to meet and surpass its targets".

Air Serbia to begin New York ticket sales

The Serbian Prime Minister, Aleksandar Vučić, has said Air Serbia will launch ticket sales for its Belgrade - New York service at the upcoming Belgrade Tourism Fair, which runs from Thursday through to Sunday next week. "The Belgrade Tourism Fair begins in a few days. We will start New York ticket sales then, while flights will begin in June. This service is a matter of prestige", the Prime Minister said yesterday. The United States Department of Transportation has granted Air Serbia rights to operate flights to the United States with its own aircraft and crew. Following a recent regulatory and safety evaluation by US authorities in Serbia, the Department is expected to issue a final notice on the carrier's permit request in the coming days.

Last December, the Chairman of the Air Serbia Supervisory Board, Siniša Mali, confirmed that ticket sales would begin in February. "During February we will launch a promotional campaign and reveal our fares [to New York]. Tickets will be affordable and very competitive. Air Serbia does not aim to be the cheapest airline in the region, we will leave that to budget airlines such as Wizz Air. Our fares will align to our on board service quality but they will be competitive compared to our competition", he said at the time. The newly appointed Ambassador of the United States to Serbia, Kyle Randolph Scott, noted yesterday that the introduction of flights to New York is an important milestone in relations between the two countries. He added that he is aware of the recent checks conducted by the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) in Belgrade, whose positive assessment is a prerequisite for permit approval.

Air Serbia will lease a Jet Airways Airbus A330-200 aircraft for its first transatlantic service. The jet will have the capacity to seat 256 passengers and will feature eighteen seats in business class, while the remaining 238 will be in economy, according to officials who inspected the plane in Abu Dhabi recently. Last week, Jet Airways' Chief Financial Officer, Amit Agarwal, told analysts in a post-earnings conference call that the Indian carrier is likely to lease A330 jets to its Serbian counterpart. The Serbian PM noted late last year that Air Serbia will most likely take delivery of a second wide-body aircraft by the end of 2016, adding that, "flights to New York are just the beginning". "I can't reveal much, but I expect that we will get a second wide-body aircraft by the end of next year. Therefore, we will have two. So we have one for backup", Mr Vučić said at the time.

For some reason, Airline Route listed that flight by Air Serbia as a daily service... and it looks like the airline is resuming its long-haul services after quite a long hiatus. While the launch date has not yet been set, Airline Route reported that it will begin some time during the second half of 2016.

I would love to see this development, especially that I am fond of long-haul journeys.
