Serbia - Switzerland flights to resume


Air Serbia will resume flights between Belgrade and Zurich on Friday, March 13, after services between Serbia and Switzerland were suspended several days ago over the coronavirus Covid-19 outbreak. The carrier is scheduled to operate double daily flights between the two cities in the coming period and has resumed ticket sales on the route. On Tuesday, the Serbian government adopted a decision to ban entry to foreign nationals arriving from Switzerland after it was determined an infected Swiss citizen was responsible for a cluster of infections in Serbia. The ban on flights has since been lifted for all parts of Switzerland with exception to the Canton of Ticino, which boarders Italy.

    Meanwhile Wizz has operated MLH-INI without a problem because they used the French airport code. lol

      Otherwise they wouldn’t be allowed to fly to Basel airport. They must put that code as the flight comes from a non-EU country.

      Yup, exactly. Interestingly, two people in Nish got infected at a conference that was attended by a woman from Switzerland, I wonder if she flew on Wizz Air. I wonder how many people she infected besides those two, starting with all the passengers on the flight.

      Unless she coughed and sneezed on all people on the plane she could not have infected others. The WHO says that this virus is only contagious if you are in direct contact in the person and sitting next to them.

    4. Basel airport is on French soil, no matter the code.

      "The WHO says that this virus is only contagious if you are in direct contact in the person and sitting next to them"

      First WHO DOES NOT SAY THIS, and second, in an airplane you are sitting next to others (pretty cramped btw.), making Airtravel a very easy way of transmitting the disease.
      So, stop spreading disinformation!

      Is off topic, but here is what another authority, the CDC says about this:

      The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.

      Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) - metric 1,82m.
      Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
      These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

    6. Correct, Basel-Airport is on french soil. But custom/immigration-wise, the airport is splitted in two parts: Swiss and French

      Maybe the custom is split but the entire airport is in France.

    They should literally shut down the airport for passenger flights and seal off the borders. The only way we're going to get past this is to follow the Chinese example in Wuhan, where they essentially put 60 million people under house arrest. It's dramatic, but it's the only thing that seems to stop transmission of this virus.
