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.
