Adria applies for Belgrade
Adria Airawys … soon in BelgradeSlovenia’s Adria Airways has applied for a license to commence flights from Ljubljana to Belgrade on March 1, 2010. The Serbian Civil Aviation Directorate confirmed the news on Friday. It is expected that Adria will receive the license. It usually takes up to 90 days for an airline to be issued a license. For years Adria has tried to commence services to Belgrade. However, due to a bilateral agreement between Serbia and Slovenia, the carrier of each country is only allowed to operate flights to 1 city in the others country. Since Adria operates flights to Priština, the airline could not receive necessary permits for Belgrade flights, until now.
