Serbia’s main hub is posting good results in 2011 with a significant passenger increase recorded. Radosavljević explains that Jat Airways has had a lot to do with the passenger increase but believes that the airport will see its biggest boom this upcoming summer season, which begins in just over a month. “This summer Jat will fly daily to Dusseldorf and Athens while low cost airlines will operate 7 daily flights out of Belgrade”, Radosavljević explains. Furthermore, Jat will reveal its 2011 summer timetable this weekend at the Belgrade Tourism Fair.
Due to encouraging operational results, the airport is expected to expand its facilities, in particular Terminal 2. The project design for the expanded Terminal 2 has been completed. This summer airBaltic, Croatia Airlines, Ryan International Airlines, Eagles Airlines, Dubrovnik Airline and Albanian Airlines are set to commence flights to the city while Wizz Air will open its base.
