Air Serbia to boost New York operations

NEWS FLASH


Air Serbia will increase operations on its flagship service between Belgrade and New York to six per week next summer season. The Serbian carrier will add an additional weekly flight each Wednesday morning starting June 20. Air Serbia maintains the route with its 254-seat Airbus A330-200 jet, featuring eighteen seats in business and the remaining 236 in economy class. Commenting on its New York service earlier this year, Air Serbia told EX-YU Aviation News, “It is satisfying to see that the mix of traffic on this route is balanced, with 47% of guests originating from North America and 53% coming from Europe. The reaction from the Serbian diaspora in North America has been exceptionally positive, as predicted, and the service has also been welcomed with open arms by communities from other countries of the former Yugoslavia". It added, "The flight has captured strong travel demand from countries neighbouring Serbia, with high volumes of connecting traffic from Montenegro, Albania, Greece, Macedonia and Croatia. This has driven the growth of tourism arrivals from America, and we are particularly seeing a large number of holidaymakers who are combining a visit to Belgrade with an onward trip to the Adriatic coast". Over the year, the Serbian carrier has concluded partnerships with jetBlue, which allows passengers to connect from Belgrade to major cities across the States with one stop in New York, as well as American Airlines, which has opened up travel options for passengers flying to the mid-West and cities which are heavily populated with people who originate from the Balkans, such as Cleveland.

    3. JetBlue ne leti za Kanadu. Žalosno je da je AirCanada upotrebila sve moguće i nemoguće da AS ne počne sa letovima za YYZ.

    12. Why is Air Serbia still keeping Toronto flights secret? It's in the open now, makes no sense to deny it. They can only benefit from making tickets available for sale sooner rather than later.

    13. Last minute details. Will make official announcement soon. Don't want to be caught with their pants down. This time they want to have absolutely all of the paperwork approved.

    14. Može li neko da mi objasni zašto počinju sa tim letovima? Kapiram da ima potražnje za Toronto, ali njih je JFK već dovoljno unazadio, a sada hoće da lete na skuplji aerodrom i plaćaju dva širokotrupca....

      Delete
    15. Potražnja, i tačka. Veruj mi.

    16. Nadam se da taj direktor sa YYZ-a prica istinu i da nasi u BEG lepo to zavrse i da KONACNO povezemo Kanadu sa Srbijom direktno

      Delete
    17. I da nas prevoznik bankrotira nakon toga...

      Delete
    18. Da istina je, jel mi je rekao da vec traze GHA itd i pripremaju IT sisteme...Trizste je tu. Ja putujem cesto za BEG kao standby staff i letovi od drugih kompanija su nenormalno popunjeni, sad sam bio u okotobru i novembru i jedva je bilo mesta sa LH i OS...samo u Torontu ima oko 80,000 srba plus okolina i ostali gradovi u Kanadi, plus trizste iz ex-yu....cak i mnogi moji prijatelji stranci su bili ili vec idu u Srbiju i okolinilu kao turisti.... ne sumnjam da nece mlci popuniti LF.

      Kako da bankrotira kad stalno ponavljas da dobijaju pare iz drzavnog budzeta? Ako dobijaju pare onda nema bankrota. Nidje veze, logika ti nije jaca strana.

    20. U koji pasulj ti gatas da znas da sam ja taj koji ponavlja da dobijaju pare iz drzavnog budzeta? Ja to nisam spomenuo ni jednom, ima ovde dosta anonimaca

    21. Sve znam, i ko si i ko te placa :-)
      Evo ti Montenegro Erlajnz, ne mogu da stignu da bankrotiraju od stalnih donacija koje dobijaju.

  2. Dakle, povećavaju Njujork na 6 nedeljnih letova, a od juna 2018. su dobili 4 nedeljna slota u Torontu. Izgleda da dolazi još jedan širokotrupac..

    ReplyDelete
  3. 6 per week :O

    Do they fly 4 p. week during holiday season?

    1. Yes. 4 weekly flights from 15 December - 12 January

  4. Čim uvode 6 nedeljnih letova-znači da dolazi još jedan A330. Ne bi rizikovali da u sred letnje sezone sve zavisi od jednog aviona i da se remeti saobraćaj. Uz to-dobili su 4 slota na Torontu od juna, tako da sve postaje razumljivo-oba širokotrupca će imati po 5 nedeljnih letova preko Atlantika, a ostalim danima možda planiraju letove do Indije. Kako god, sledi nam uzbudljiva godina.

    1. Ako zakaze A330 oni uvek mogu uzeti jedan avion od Etihada, to je mozda i jedina dobra stvar koja je proizasla od partnerstva sa Etihadom. Ne znam, voleo bih da je istina, ali s obzirom koliko kresu troskove, ne znam da li ce se uputiti u jos jednu avanturu sa A330 i placanjem iznajmljivanja ...

    2. Kad je krenuo JFK Air Serbia je rekla da je 5x nedeljno najvise sto mogu sa jednim avionom zbog neophodnog odrzavanja ostalim danima. Posto sad idu vise od tog maksimuma znaci da dolazi drugi avion.

    3. Iskeno se nadam!! Zivim na relaciji Toronto - Beograd. Moja ekipa prijatelja i ja uzasno nestrpljivo cekamo BEG-YYZ-BEG. kad i ako bude uspostavljeno. na prvom letu sam i to u Biznisu! lol

  7. Iskreno od YYZ-a nece biti nista u 2018, definitivno se radi 6-pw JFK sa jednim avionom.

    1. Izvor? Zašto su onda uzeli 4 slota na Torontu? I kako bi smeli jednim avionom da obavljaju 6 letova u vrhuncu sezone, pa da jednim kvarom poremete saobraćaj tokom cele nedelje?

      Delete
    2. Izvor je ja znam od pouzdanih izvora.

  8. By the way, Air Serbia has cancelled Monday flights during next February and March, only two flights weekly will remain then. The same for November and December next year.

    1. They are not. They look much better in person and very similar to what you will get from many larger airlines.
