Air Serbia names sixth jet

NEWS FLASH


Air Serbia has named its sixth aircraft and the fifth under the "Living Legends" campaign today after musician Goran Bregović.‎ Bregović is internationally recognised for his music and has composed for varied artists. He rose to fame by playing the guitar in the iconic Yugoslav band Bijelo Dugme. The “Living Legends” program pays tribute to Serbian nationals who have excelled in their chosen profession and achieved international recognition. So far, three Airbus A319s and one A320 have been named after tennis star Novak Djoković, basketball player Vlade Divac, footballer Dejan Stanković and actor Miki Manojlović. In addition to the "Living Legends", the carrier has named its wide-body Airbus A330 aircraft after Nikola Tesla, to emphasise his links between Belgrade and New York. Air Serbia's CEP, Dane Kondić, said, “Goran Bregović has composed some of the biggest songs of the past few decades, not only in Serbia, but in the region and all over the world, and we are delighted to name an aircraft in his honour. Known for combining seemingly irreconcilable music genres and styles, Goran writes music that has lasting power. With his innovative approach and commitment, he broke through regional boundaries to emerge as a global brand". Mr Kondić added, “In many ways, his success is comparable to that of Air Serbia, which will this evening receive the 2017 Airline Market Leader award from Air Transport World at an awards ceremony in New York. So far we have named three aircraft after famous sportsmen and one after our popular actor, and it was the right time for an aircraft to be named after a renowned musician”.

  8. Nemam misljenje oko davanja imena po zivim legendama, ono sto bih voleo da vidim, ako se vec daju tako imena, onda je recimo ime Kapetana Stevana Ignjatovica i njegovih kolega koji su spasavali JAT rizikujuci svoje zivote, onda recimo neke legende JATa, ljudima koji imaju neke veze sa vazduhoplovstvom, sa JATom, sa Srbijom, sa AirSerbia... Ili po recimo pokojnom Ziki Petrovicu...

    1. My favorites:
      - Nadam se da to ne znači da je avion ukraden i prefarban u boje Air Serbia
      - Hahaaj koje gluposti ja sam mislio da je bosna haos ni u vas nista bolje mozda u bosni avion dobije ime semsa suljakovic
      - Jesmo li pokrali najvažnije delove za ovaj avion od drugih? Jer ako nismo, avion nije zaslužio da se zove Bregovićevim imenom.
      - Ubicu i sebe i dijete
      - Ipak je ispostovao avion - nije dosao u koznim pantalonama...
