Air Serbia's Airbus A330 aircraft, which has been undergoing a cabin re-fit in Abu Dhabi over the past three weeks, is set to return to Belgrade in the coming days. The airline is expected to officially unveil its long haul product over the week. Air Serbia's CEO, Dane Kondić, noted, "We've gone to great lengths to make sure it [A330] offers the best possible travel experience over the Atlantic, with completely lie-flat beds in Business Class, menus showcasing Serbian cuisine and personal entertainment systems loaded with movies, TV shows and music in both Serbian and English". Last week, the CEO of the Etihad Aviation Group, James Hogan, reiterated the equity alliance's support for the Belgrade - New York route. “It [Air Serbia] couldn’t have done that on its own, it would have been cost- prohibitive. But with our help and as part of the Etihad Group, it has become the only Balkans country flying direct to New York", he said. The service will commence on June 23.
