Belgrade - Rijeka
Strong interest to resume Belgrade – Rijeka flightsJat Airways is interested in commencing flights between Belgrade and Rijeka this summer. Jat has also expressed interest to commence flights from Belgrade to Dubrovnik, as was reported a few days ago. However, the airline still hasn’t given the final approval for the flights as it puts the final touches to its 2011 summer season timetable. The Primorje-Gorski Kotar County’s vice mayor, Vidoje Vujić, held talks with Jat representatives this weekend at the Belgrade International Tourism Fair, where Croatia was the special guest country. “Rijeka and Belgrade used to be connected 14 times per week”, Vujić told the “Novi list” newspaper. So far, Croatia Airlines is the only airline to have confirmed flights between Croatia and Belgrade, with the 2 weekly Belgrade – Dubrovnik service commencing June 20. Despite an earlier promise from both Jat and Croatia Airlines that they will reveal their cooperation plans over the weekend, this did not occur. Below you can view the map with the planned services between Belgrade and Croatia set to commence this year. Whether they will become more than just promises remains to be seen.
