Air Serbia to deploy A330 on regional routes

NEWS FLASH


Air Serbia will utilise its first wide-body jet, an Airbus A330-200, on regional routes in the lead-up to its deployment to New York on June 23. The aircraft could enter service as early as Friday, although changes are possible. The first routes which are likely to see the jet include Podgorica, Banja Luka, Zagreb and Sarajevo. The exact destinations and dates are also subject to approvals from local regulators. Furthermore, the short flights will be used for crew familiarisation purposes. A total of 28 pilots and ninety cabin crew members have undergone training for the aircraft. The jet arrived from Abu Dhabi to Belgrade last night where it underwent a complete cabin refit. The aircraft, registered YU-ARA, will carry the name Nikola Tesla, marking a break in tradition from the airline's "living legends of Serbia" name campaign.

    2. Pupin OK, but Ćosić, if that is who you mean, no way.

    3. Why not? He is far less controversial than Tudjman or Jashari. Plus, he is considered as one of our best contemporary authors. Have you actually read any of his work?

    4. we have much less controversial but similarly qualified individuals...

    5. Dobrica Cosic is not controversial at all, he is an internationally acclaimed author.

    6. Cosic is unheard of internationally as a writer. There are many many much better Serbian writers, living or dead. For example, Crnjanski, Sekulic, Rastko Petrovic, Ducic, Kostic, Andric, Kis, Pekic...

    7. I would have prefered "City of Belgrade/Beograd". But Tesla is okay as well, I guess. Perhaps its a bit overused these days. Mihajlo Pupin and Milutin Milanković should be next in line, when the time comes.

    8. +1 Eight. Cities would have been a much better choice.

    1. But didn't he say that Air Serbia doesn't impact on them at all ? Shame, he could learn what a modern passenger orientated airline looks like.

      These guys did in 3 years what OU couldn't do in 20 years .....

      What a crying shame

    2. Don't forget that Etihad is responsible for pretty much everything in Air Serbia. And there is great difference between private owned airlines and state owned. For government owned company like OU it is success that it is running on modern fleet, that it is running with no significant debts and that there are plans for airlines' future.

    3. "and that there are plans for airlines' future"

      Yes, while other airlines soar and develop at breakneck speed, Kučko & Co. are busy devising a cunning plan.

    2. Relativno mala, JU je tek sada uspela da napuni A319 svaki dan. Pre ce doci do Tivta doduse...

      Mada pravo je pitanje da li SPU ima vece sanse od DBV-a imajuci u vidu da je vece trziste.

    3. Do Tivta bi A380 napunili da imaju :D :D

  5. Zagreb je bitan za AS imajući u vidu da su već godinama u nazad prvi po brojnosti turisti u Beograd upravo iz Hrvatske.
