Serbia and India continue flight talks

NEWS FLASH


Serbia and India have continued to discuss the launch of nonstop flights between New Delhi and Belgrade. The Serbian Minister for Construction, Transport and Infrastructure, Zorana Mihajlović, met with the Indian Ambassador to Serbia, Narinder Chauhan, this week where the two discussed in further detail the potential resumption of flights between the two countries after more than 25 years. "The launch of nonstop flights would significantly boost tourism and trade between our two nations", Ms Chauhan said. Ms Mihajlović noted, "It is our desire to establish nonstop flights between Serbia and India and we are currently working on it". During the summer, the Serbian Prime Minister, Ana Brnabić, said her government was negotiating the launch of flights between Belgrade and New Delhi, adding that the service would mark a natural progression of linking her country with strategically important markets, following New York and Beijing. Serbia and India revised their Air Service Agreement earlier this year, while last month Serbia became the first European country to abolish visa requirements for Indian nationals.

    2. So that would be a no. I think Serbia should not have abolished it for them if they were not willign to return the favour.

    3. These things take time. I am not familiar with Indian politics but probably some parliament or some lawmakers have to meet and draft a law and get it passed.
