Forli flights for Niš

Soon in Niš
On Thursday, after weeks of negotiations, the Italian low cost airline Wind Jet confirmed that it will commence services from Forli to Niš Constantine the Great Airport in Serbia. The agreement was signed between the airport’s and airline’s management in the Serbian city. Wind Jet will operate flights every Thursday, once per week. This excludes the inaugural flight which will operate on Saturday, December 26. A return ticket from Forli to Niš will set passengers back between 83 and 200 Euros (depending if the passenger decides to choose greater flexibility with ticketing) – all taxes included. Fares above or below this price range won’t be found until June next year as the prices have been fixed during the promotional trial period.

Forli is located South-East of Bologna and will take passengers an extra hour to arrive there by bus, if they choose to do so. The management of Niš Airport is hoping that Swiss authorities will issue a license to Montenegro Airlines so that it can begin services from the airport to Zurich. Although, this seems unlikely at this point. The CEO of Jat Airways, which terminated all services from Niš this winter, said that the Serbian national carrier is interested in restarting flights from the city if it is economically viable. After a meeting with the mayor of Niš, Srdjan Radovanović said that the airline will look into possible routes that could be launched during the 2010 summer season.

All flight details for the new Forli – Niš service can be found on the right hand side in the “new route launches” section.


  1. The airport's/town's name is Forlí.

  2. This is a good news.
    I live near the town of FORLI', which is located about 65 km east from Bologna.
    Unfortunately Forlì Airport was abandoned by Ryanair which moved all its flights to Bologna lately.
    WindJet is getting a good chance to widen the own network from this town.

  3. Why does Nis even have an international airport? Was it ever used during the time of Yugoslavia?

  4. @ peter from syd

    yes it was used during the time of Yugoslavia. JAT offered flights to ZAG and BEG, dont know how often, for how long.

  5. Nis had flights from London too before the war, I really do not know which company but I assume it was JAT.
