Air Serbia to reduce New York operations

NEWS FLASH


Air Serbia will reduce operations on its flagship service to New York over the winter season. The carrier will run three weekly flights, each Monday, Thursday and Saturday, starting Novembet 8 instead of five as initially planned. Services will be maintained four times per week between December 23, 2016 and January 3, 2017, before returning to three weekly. Five flights per week will resume during the 2017 summer season. In a statement, the carrier said, "The adjustments are part of our standard seasonal adjustment of schedules for the winter season". The airline launched flights to New York in June with its two-class Airbus A330-200 aircraft. You can review all of Air Serbia's preliminary winter season changes to its network here.

    1. China will be operated by Chinese carrier according to news. But they can use it to fly to Toronto twice weekly in the winter.

    2. I agree,

      There is a lot of traffic b/w Toronto and Balkan cities....I am sure at least ONE weekly flight would keep that flight full!

    3. Yes but toronto flights might reduce pax numbers in NYC since, a certain part of NYC passengers are from toronto just connecting thru nyc to beg.

    4. Toronto passengers are not connecting to Air Serbia at JFK. You can't buy a single ticket from Toronto to Belgrade via New York. Buying two separate tickets is too risky and inconvenient.

  8. Finally there is someone there that he is actually thinking! With this feeder timetable five flights per week would be some serious loss money making. I hope this works.
