Jat reschedules Dubai flights
To Dubai from February 09Jat Airways has moved forward the launch of its Belgrade – Dubai service as reported on Friday. The flights were to be launched on April 01 and substitute the existing Belgrade – Abu Dhabi service. The flights to the capital of the United Arab Emirates are to be terminated on February 04. This would have left an almost 2 month gap between the termination of the Abu Dhabi flights and the launch of Dubai. As a result, Jat will now begin services to Dubai on February 09. There will only be one weekly flight until April 01 when another is to be added. On May 10, a third weekly flights will commence. It has also been revealed to EX-YU Aviation that a fourth weekly flight will be added in June if preliminary bookings show a need for it. The flight up until April will operate with a Boeing B737-300 while the rest will operate with the airline’s new B737-700, if the order for the aircraft is finalised within the next month.
