From Belgrade to Dortmund and LondonOne of Europe’s largest low cost airlines, Wizz Air, has finalised its plans for services to Belgrade’s Nikola Tesla Airport. The airline has stepped away from its idea to base an aircraft in Belgrade and fly to various destinations. Instead, it will only serve Serbia’s capital from two cities – Dortmund and London. Dortmund Airport, in Western Germany is entirely served by low cost and charter airlines. Wizz Air would fly from London’s Luton Airport to Belgrade. The airline did not manage to secure concessions from Belgrade’s Airport management. Although the management was ready to agree to all of Wizz Air’s terms, which would see landing and handling fees slashed for the airline, it was unable to do so as other full service and low cost airlines flying to Belgrade requested equal treatment.
Wizz Air’s flights to Belgrade are expected to begin in April and tickets should be on sale within 2 weeks. Wizz Air will be the fourth low cost airline to serve Belgrade after the arrival of Niki in February.
