Serbia lifts all entry restrictions and requirements

NEWS FLASH


The Serbian government has announced that it will tomorrow adopt measures to lift all entry restriction and requirements introduced during the coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic for both locals and foreign nationals as of Friday, May 22. As a result, incoming passengers will no longer be required to have a negative Covid-19 test, nor will they be required to self-isolate or be quarantined if they do not have one. Furthermore, foreign nationals will no longer be required to obtain a special permit to enter the country. Belgrade Airport reopened for commercial traffic this Monday. Air Serbia will resume commercial operations tomorrow, with the launch of flights to Frankfurt and Zurich. Although initially planned to run once per week, the carrier has added a further two flights to Zurich and an additional rotation to Frankfurt tomorrow due to increased inbound demand.

      Having a covid test 72 hours before your arrival is completely pointless. You can get infected on your way out of testing or anywhere else for that matter after you take the test. Complete nonsense.

      Because there are now enough supplies and facilities to accommodate any future increase in infections. Serbia has also done the blood test (not the fast tests) which is why there were so many infected, it is more reliable. Yesterday number of new infected fell to just 38.

      Also there is the economic aspect. With JU grounded the government is basically paying them not to fly. Flight from FRA is full and one way ticket was around €155 so do the math how much money they are going t make.

      Well if we remove €20 airport tax a FRA, JU will get an approximate revenue of €20.000 from ticket sales. With fuel being cheap they should have a lot of cash left for themselves.

      On Air Serbia web site I saw that one way flight FRA-BEG costs 250 EUR and return 510 EUR.

      It is still there.

      I guess they have just one or two seats left. With LH's presence in BEG uncertain for the short-term period, JU should have no problem in filling 4 weekly flights to FRA. Don't know why they are keeping them as one weekly.

    I think this also has to do with the government's plan to attract more tourists from China.

      What matters is that we are seeing fewer and fewer restrictions imposed by the government.

    Balkan countries are fast in taking drastic changes. Roller coaster style.
    Few days ago Slovenia opened suddenly for many countries now Serbia.
    They do reverse their decision quickly.

    Good to see life is returning to normal in this good country after 2 months of nightmare, but the virus is not over and hope these drastic changes does not cause second wave of infections.

    The used aircraft market is sure to fall even further then it has already - there will be a raft of airlines bankruptcies especially towards the end of the year when the extent of the collapse in demand will be obvious to all, with the winter season approaching (not even taking into account the Covid situation re-igniting). Airlines will be particularly hard hit then when the bailouts and cheap loans they're receiving now have run dry. JU has a fairly urgent need (between now and the next year to two) to replace their B737s as well as the ATR 72-200s in their fleet. That's 6 aircraft right there. 3x A319 and 3x ATR 72-500/-600 is what they'll be looking at, and there should be plenty of those aircraft types coming off lease or even being stored (where JU could take over the lease at lower rates, or acquire the a/c outright). There will be plenty of opportunities, but an airline of this size should keep it simple. This is a great chance to eliminate an aircraft type (Boeing 737). However, you never know - if Boeing comes along with an 'offer of the century' to replace all of their leased A319s and the owned B733s with new/nearly new 737 Max aircraft, then that is something JU will undoubtedly look at.

  11. They literally 1 week ago announced that they required all foreign nationals to have a negative test not older than 72, plus special permission from Serbian government to enter. I had to call my airline and cancel my May 29th flight to Serbia because of it. Now, theyre they're lifting all restrictions? Thats just crazy. If you're making drastic changes, it would be nice to give a few weeks notice before actually doing them. Who's to say that next week they wont bring restrictions back? Its just a nightmare for travelers.
