Speaking at an economic forum in Belgrade yesterday, representatives of Spanair said that they chose to commence services to Belgrade because they see great potential and want to get in early. The airline says that Spaniards are world travellers and that Belgrade will be a popular destination. Similarly, Serbs hold Spain in high regard and Spanish holiday resorts have become a popular place for Serbian tourists.
Yugoslav Airlines began flights to Madrid and Barcelona in the late 1980s. They were terminated after economic sanctions were introduced in May 1992. Spanair will also commence services from Madrid to Belgrade on May 28. All flight details for the Barcelona and Madrid services can be found on the right hand side in the new route launches section.
On another note, Jat Airways will also celebrate today. The airline will resume flights to the Slovenian town of Portorož after 19 years.
