Final touches for Morava Airport

Construction work complted
Construction at Serbia’s newest international airport in Kraljevo is coming to an end. Security equipment is currently being installed inside the terminal building and final touches are being made as Morava Airport prepares to open its doors. However, it could be several months before the new airport handles its first flights as bureaucratic procedures will now have to take place. Ljiljana Mijatović, from the Serbian Ministry of Defence, says that the building will receive an operational license within twenty days. “Following the license grant we have to obtain all necessary documentation from the Serbian Civil Aviation Directorate, the police and customs”, she adds. The airport is set to receive a new IATA code as well.

Once the airport is completed Jat Airways will launch two weekly flights to Istanbul with an ATR72. Work will also immediately begin on the second phase of the airport project which will see the extension of the runway by 300 metres, allowing larger aircraft to take off and land. The Morava Airport terminal building features a duty free shop, exchange office, commercial office space, a detention centre, clinic and a cargo depot. A new control tower has also been built.

Officials hope that the new airport will stimulate business and investment in the area. Since the airport lies between several industrial cities, there is hope that the likes of the Italian run Fiat-Zastava car manufacturer will make use of the airport. The company currently ferries its workers on specially chartered Adria Airways flights from Belgrade to Torino. Construction work on Morava Airport began last year.

  3. Serbian business, when a Serbian man on a hill makes a sign "HOLYWOOD" or something trying to attract tourists, missing the other L haha... gotta love our people :)

    Hope these flights will do some good! Would love to fly from the US via Istanbul to Kraljevo then drive 45 minutes away to my town than fly to BEG and drive 3 hours to my town...

    I doubt they will code-share with Turkish Airlines though.. would be nice..?

    1. He did that because the actual spelling is copyrighted. That sign does not reflect the name of the neighbourhood, but rather the industry.
