About



EX-YU Aviation News was launched on June 1, 2008 with the aim to bring together commercial aviation news from the former Yugoslavia. Ever since, the site has become the go-to place for news from the region and is updated on a daily basis with fresh articles available from 09.00 Central European Time.

In 2011, the popular "Vintage" section of the site was introduced, documenting and publishing over 400 photographs celebrating the rich history of the aviation industry in the former Yugoslavia. In 2014, a "News Flash" section was launched, providing short aviation news updates from the region.

EX-YU Aviation News uses a mix of original and aggregated content. The site has published over 4.400 posts including interviews with airline and airport executives, both local and international, and broken numerous industry exclusives. For two years in a row, in 2016 and 2017, EX-YU Aviation News was named one of the top fifty most influential aviation blogs and websites for aviation professionals by Feedspot, which compiles the most comprehensive list of the best aviation blogs on the Internet.

EX-YU Aviation News is managed singlehandedly, which includes all news content, comment moderation, as well as web design.
