Jat gets new CEO

Dane Kondić named Jat Airways’ new CEO

The Jat Airways Joint Stock Assembly yesterday approved the endorsement of the Serbian government to name Dane Kondić as the new CEO and President of the airline, relieving acting CEO Velibor Vukašinović of his duties. Mr. Kondić, who will head Jat through its transitional period over the next month and a half before taking on the role of CEO of Air Serbia, has outlined the airline’s goals over the next few years, with the short term objectives being new aircraft and new routes as well as joint training, procurement, sales and marketing with Etihad Airways. Mr. Kondić (48), was born in Sydney to Serbian parents. He graduated economics at the University of New South Wales in Sydney and started his career with Qantas before becoming the General Manager of Worldwide Sales for Malaysia Airlines. He subsequently moved to take on the challenge of managing a tour operator, and was heading the North Asia region for a major wholesaler, based in Hong Kong before taking up a position at Etihad Airways. Mr. Kondić becomes the first non political appointment to head the airline since the Jat brand was launched 66 years ago.

Velibor Vukašinović who served as Jat Airways’ acting CEO since May 8, 2013 can be credited for managing to return most of Jat’s fleet to the sky. Mr. Vukašinović took over the airline when only seven aircraft were in operation. By leasing a further four aircraft the airline is now operating a fleet of fifteen. During that time the carrier has seen its passenger numbers improve and losses reduce. In his farewell address yesterday to all of Jat’s employees Mr. Vukašinović said amongst other thing, “I would like to thank you all for your cooperation and the results we have achieved in very harsh conditions. It has been an honour and pleasure to lead such a group of professionals, excellent workers and even better people who have managed to save the Serbian national carrier despite all the wars, sanctions, bombing, poverty and bad political influences which have all deeply reflected on the airline. You should be proud that nothing could break your spirits and that every time the airline rose like the phoenix from the ashes”. Mr. Vukašinović wished Jat all the best in its next chapter.

As the official launch date of the rebranded Serbian national carrier approaches on October 27, the airline is preparing to put up for sale its first tickets according to its revised timetable. Yesterday the airline ran test by temporarily adding revised flight times, fares and equipment to global distribution systems such as Monastir for the summer of 2014 Today, Air Serbia is organising yet another round of crew casting and is also hiring in flight chefs as part of its new in flight dining concept.

----------------------

UPDATE

Air Serbia has begun adding its winter 2013/14 flight schedule to global reservation systems and are now available for view. The flights will be added throughout the day today and tomorrow. Also added are new flights to Ljubljana, Bucharest, Banja Luka and Prague. As can be noted the flight times and numbers correspond to the ones exclusively revealed by EX-YU Aviation News several weeks ago.

  1. Well indeed, does anyone know something about financial results of Jat for first half of this year, they always speak about LF, number of passengers etc. I have not seen a single word on this subject ever and anywhere. How much have that cost ?

    This is somehow unfair to say without two additional comments. First of all, there were 7 aircrafts used, but some other were on a regular mechanical check up and were subsequently introduced as schedualed by the old management. So it was not due to Vukasinovic. And secons: the leasing of additional aircrafts waas also planed by the previous management - what they did lack is the governamts support, since they were appointed before Mr. Vucic and SNS took over the government. Once the SNS put their manager - Vukasinovic, the government has allowed the leasing.

    After all there is nothing what Vukasinovic should be aknowladged for. As the metter of fact, he has tried to stop and sabotage the takeover of JAT by Etihad. - All the details of Company´s business and potential were provided to Etihad prior to Vukasiunovc by old management, and it is the old management wtaht ist to be aknowladged for Etihad deal.

    AS far Mr Kondic is concerned, I just hope that he will soon realize, that Sernoam community in AUstralia is living in a kind of virtual far-tale-reality regarding the Serbian state and tradition, and he will be not able to put a powerful leader in the Balkan region without that "srbovanje" typical for Serbian emmigrants. Afterall, less idilic srbovanje, more competence in Serbian language would be fine for the start.

    2. Ognjenovic had 3 years to lease aircraft while his party was leading the government. He did nothing. Too much time spent in cafes.

      Delete
    3. Agree about Vukasinovic. A big negative point about him is the deal with Bulgaria Air. I am very surprised that Vucic (Sinisa Mali) closed his eyes and ignored the leasing of those aircrafts.

      And, once more, we have the Etihad-deal thanks to Vucic and Dinkic and not Ognjenovic or Vukasinovic...

      Delete
    4. More like thanks to Vucic. Dinkic was just there to techically help finish the deal, he was not the one who made the deal itself.

    5. To anonymous at 12.55 - you are such a fuckwit ! You have had native Serbian speaking leadership since day 1 and look at the results they have to show for it _ simply awesome. What you need is professional airline people leading this airline out of the mess that these people lead it into .... Whether you speak Serbian or Swahili, makes no difference at all ...

      Delete
    6. Kind of related to the above first anonymous comment... I was speaking to a Serb colleague at work today who just got back from Serbia where he told me he had to hire CROATIANS to do the renovations he planned on his house in Belgrade because Serbs were very unhelpful because he was from Australia. Example he gave were, paying up front and not getting material delivered, and workers doing nothing for an entire week. He said they kept commenting about him being a 'stranace'. In the end he hired on old friend from Croatia.

      Also, I said next time you can fly direct with one stop via Abu Dhabi, He replied by not wanting to fly with Arabs and his first choice is Qantas or LH. lol.

      Kondic might have his work cup out for him.

      Delete
    7. He did not hire Croatians because they are better or more grateful but because his friend is from there. If his friend was Mongolian it would have been the same thing.

      Serbian and Croatian mentality is very similar and there are very few differences between the two people. Unfortunately some politicians like to change that so as to suit their own personal agenda.

      Individual EU members can introduce visa unilaterally for non EU citizens, without EU having a say. Also EU accession talks take long time, under new system it can last minimum of 10 years, but normally longer, 12 years would be a norm under new enlargement process, this is if all goes well, if not.

      EU would prefer to have Serbia, Albania and Bosnia join in the same group, for obvious reasons, we'll see how things go.

    4. Sorry, you can't compare Serbia and Bosnia, what about Macedonia??

    5. Yes,Serbia will enter together with Macedonia,Albania and Bosnia and also Kosovo.
      Serbia has to recognize K.independence first...
      not official but you know its fact.Dont think this will a problem in long term,The problem will be Greece(and Cyprus)
      will not recognize entering Macedonia because of the name dispute.
      Sorry forthis offtopic.

      NO! They can not do that! Can you please inform yourself before posting false information. The only ones that can do this are those which are not in the Schengen agreement and none besides the UK has them in place.

      Nobody is, but situation is quite delicate in the region that issue should Serbia become an EU member and than use its veto or w/e to block Kosovo, Albania or even Bosnia to further progress is one issue that bothers many with in the EU, of course EU could ask Serbia to agree not to block these nations progressing but there could be a number of reasons Serbia could still impose its veto not based on political but on "economic grounds".

      Fine example of Greece and Macedonia fiasco,

      Something EU truly wants to avoid in future.

      Montenegro might join on its own, but even that hands in the balance now. Germany made it clear that they rather slow down EU enlargement process for a while, and this is what EU is doing now, they want to first deal with issue of other EE countries that have joined the EU and once they're economically more able, EU would be able to absorb new members easier.

      Dutch, French, Danes, Swedes and Belgians are also inclined for postponing EU expansion for a decade of two.

      Only The UK, Italy and Finland are for status Q, with UK promoting Turkish EU membership to which almost all western EU members oppose.

    1. I read about it and the news are very vague.

      Obviously a member of the EU can ask the comission to temporary introduce visa-regime for five countries-
      Serbia,Montenegro,Bosnia,Macedonia and Albania-
      up to two months.

      But as the comission has the last say it is very unlikely they will do anything.
      It seems to me that now introduction of visa would even become more difficult in future.
      Who knows,the whole EU is contradicting itself...
      maybe its better to ignore their messy ways of doing things?!

    2. @DusanSeptember 12, 2013 at 3:09 PM

      It all depends who is asking for visa-reintroduction, was it Germany ???

      if it was Germany than its likely to have some credence and support among western members of the EU, Holland, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden even France. If it was the UK, than it will be only UK's decision to make, for UK isn't in the Schengen and has independent immigration policy.

      So you got to look at who is proposing visa restrictions and why !?

      If it has to do with large asylum seeker influx than it might be an issue for Serbia to sort out quickly.

      Delete
    3. Mostly asylum seekers from Serbia are Rom people and Albanians from the south with Serbian passports, that is the fact.So what to do with them?? They have they human rights too as all other nations who live in Serbia.

      Delete
    4. It is not Serbias fault that the immigration bureaucracy of EU-countries is so incompetent.
      Even if your asylum request will have a negative outcome you get shelter and medical assistance for half a year guaranteed!
      A lot of people who have no health insurance apply for asylum to get free medical treatment and free housing in cold winters .
      When the law of this countries do allow this all they can not
      blame Serbia and Albania for it.
      Btw: Marrying in Belgium is en vogue by Gypsies from Serbia and Macedonia -
      the Belgian state pays up to 90 per cent for"humanitarian reasons".

      perhaps there are bigger issues than just few Roma and Albanians trying to leave, there are issues at home that need to be addressed, equality, human rights, including employment rights, rights to education and social equality.

      Perhaps Serbia needs to work on this to encourage less Albanian and Roma leaving and trying to apply for asylum elsewhere.

      Address the concerns, and try to find a solution that would benefit all minorities in a long term, provide them with economic freedom all Serbs enjoy, i.e jobs, housing, education, helathcare and other benefits state provides.

      And no i am not talking handouts, but more of encouraging young Albanians and roma access to education, jobs and social life so they're not stigmatized and seen as 2nd or a 3rd class citizens.

      This is what the EU is all about btw.

      Remember was it last year when gay pride was viscously attacked by Serb Radicals, with 2 French nationals and gay activist ending on a life support and police doing nothing to protect the protesters, the whole culture must change in Serbia, it is too balkanized and too backward in its traditions, we live in a 21st century now, its time for people to accept other cultures and lifestyles.

      Are you serious? As you may or may not know, education and healthcare in Serbia are free. The Albanian community, just like most communities have: education in their mother tongue, media and information in their mother tongue, the right to work in the local self-governments, etc. The fact that they decide not to speak Serbian, thus making it impossible to work in the local self-government is another issue. If they boycott anything Serbian (2011 census, for example), it is not Serbia's fault, but rather of the Albanian politicians. The economic situation in Serbia is bad, regardless of whether you are Albanian, Serbian, Roma, Hungarian. Please stop blaming everything on the Serbs.

      And with the Roma, there are steps the Serbian government is taking to change the situation, introducing positive discrimnation measures, for example the number of Roma students at Universities.

    6. CS300 is a A320NEO/737MAX competitor, but all of that depends on what Etihad wants really. They won't buy 10 CS300s if they're buying 200 A320 NEOs. They'll want to maximize their negotiating leverage.

      Delete
    7. precisely. CS300 is 320/737 competitor. bu ti wouldn't go with them for Air Serbia. especially since Etihad has good relations with both Airbus and Boeing. i would purchase CSeries for AGX, for they could have a good use of them (all economy makes CS100 110 and CS300 135 pax)

    Athens, 12 weekly
    dep. daily at 12.50 or 13.30 with B733. Other routes are the same.

  21. I doubt all will stay. They seem to be adding new flights first and then remove the old ones.

    "SJJ DOUBLE DAILY FLIGHTS WITH ATR 72"
    Nope, only JU112 will remain at 14.10. JU108 should be removed.

    SKP should also have 21:45 departure dropped. There will be no overnights on airports other than BEG.

    AMS 262/263 will be erased, only new flights with new numbers will be operated. 7 times a week.

    It is good that they are not going head to head with Aeroflot to Moscow, moved the daily flight to midnight departure and adding two more options with perspective of going 21pw. Similar flight times to those used in the `80s.

    But, they seem to be going head-to-head with Montenegro to Podgorica... How cruel ;)

    1. But what's strange is that these flights are in the booking system already. Why would they link the flights that are to go with these new ones? Doesn't make sense.

    2. I believe the system does it automatically. It has available flights at hand, minimum connecting times in BEG and fares for the complete flight, ie TLV-SVO (via BEG). So it just mix and match what is available at the moment.

    3. They already started with erasing the old flights. ZRH-flights are loaded with 7.20 morning departure and (mostly) 19.05 evening departure (on some days +/- 30min)...

      Delete
    4. Are you sure? I'm now only seeing the morning flight JU 370/371, whose timing is great. You can make it from western Switzerland (even from Geneva) and it's perfect for extending weekend trip to BEG until Monday morning for people who work in the Zurich area... I hope JU 372/373 is close to the old 330/331 (which I believe are what you're referring to in the post above)

      Delete
    5. Look at 27OCT until 01NOV. For those days, they already loaded JU 374/375. And in all cases, except 30OCT, it is departing ZRH at 21.20. I guess that the standard evening departure will be 18.40 from BEG and 21.20 from ZRH (and that it will stay all year round).

      I live and work in ZRH-city and the new timetable is perfect for me. I travel all 2, 3 weeks to Serbia and always choose the evening flights. And JU331 at 16.10 from BEG to ZRH was just too early for me. 18.40 or 19.05 is much much better.

      The morning flight is also great, but not the much different to the old one (JU332/333). They just tried to optimize the timetable for business people. Now you can take the 7.20-flight in BEG, arrive in ZRH at 09.10, spend the whole day there and take the flight back some 12 hours later at 21.20. Not bad at all...

      Delete
    6. @SuisseOuest: Now everything for ZRH should be loaded. But it seems that it's going to be only 12 weekly with Saturday only morning and Sunday only evening... until January. And from January 2014 it will become a double daily service. Great news for ZRH!

      Delete
    7. I couldn't agree more with both of you! I liked JU 330/331, but JU 374/375 are way better. And they work perfectly for us from the other side of the country: I don't need to get out of work early to make the Friday evening flight and can have a nice long Sunday lunch with the family before flying back :)
      Onward and upward, Air Serbia!

    8. It will be very interesting to see how this impacts Swiss and their own double daily flights. I guess we are going to see fewer A321 on the route.
      I am sure that as the Serbian economy improves so will the number of passengers flying to/from Switzerland.

      Delete
    9. I agree with you, Nemjee. It will probably take time, but I'm sure that a lot of those Serbians that ignored JU because of the bad service will change their opinion and fly AirSERBIA. And it's not only the quality that will come with the new brand. JU will have a better timetable for frequent/business travellers. But LX will always have some O&D-pax thanks to their good connections with North America. The only thing that will stay in my opinion are the prices.

    That monitoring might be fun activity for us here but a VERY hard work for the good people at JU. Their livelihood and corporate success depend on that.

    TIV - BEG 10:00 - 11:00
    BEG - AUH 12:25 - 20:40
    AUH - BEG 08:20 - 11:25
    BEG - TIV 14:10 - 15:15

    I already see many tourists heading to Dubrovnik using those flights.

  26. There is a thing called yeild management systems, all done by computer. Im sure the staff will no longer require to do this or planning schedules on paper any more.

  27. The Bucharest airport code is incorrectly listed on the Jat website. BUH is currently closed for the regular air traffic. It is for sure about OTP - Bucuresti Otopeni.

    1. BUH is the code for all airports in Bucharest the same way MOW is for Moscow and NYC is for New York.

    2. Thanks for reply! My mistake, BBU is the other airport. I haven't known so far about the all airports code.

    3. No problem. By the way, BBU was closed last year and all operations have been moved to OTP.
      BBU is used for private jets and government flights. :)
