      No one as no other airlines have planned new flights to BEG. The good news is that they are just moved and not cancelled and that all these routes are year round. Perhaps you haven't noticed that there is a global pandemic and that global air travel hasn't even reached 20% of last year.

      JU was stupid to cancel all their new routes instead of just deleting them.

      JU's main problem is that they lack a marketing strategy, all they do is promote their flights on social media and that's all. Never have I seen one billboard with their ad anywhere in the world, not even in Belgrade. Besides BEG they don't advertize at any airport.

      That's not true at all. They advertise often. In Belgrade they had ads on those electronic billboards right until corona struck. They also had trams fully branded as Air Serbia earlier this year. I don't know about other airports but there are Air Serbia ads at Zagreb and Ljubljana airports.

      I am not above Anon but I live in Belgrade and I am surprised I didn't see any of those. How long were the trams painted? It can't be long.

      For at least a month. Several Spanish trams.

      Just a month? They should have had them for at least 6 months.

      There were also ads on trams for new routes launched last year. They are even on some trams to this date. So your original post is wrong.

      What an ineffective and disastrous marketing attempt, no wonder so many new routes failed this year. With so much money from the national budget they should at least do more.

      Budget for marketing is not big and is divided into categories depending on which country is a priority. Trams had the ads for three weeks because they are not cheap. Air Serbia is in difficult position, one 733 left the fleet (YU-AND), two ATR leases were terminated and so were the two JP A319s. Hopefully better times come soon.

      Do you live in a parallel universe?

      @Ji.Ma you are talking a lot of nonsense. Ads were not up for three weeks and the Adria leases have not been cancelled.

      JU does serious digital marketing in Greece - you can see their ads on FB/IG offering connections. No wonder they had like 24 weekly flights compared to A3's five (last year).

      Don't forget JU also had huge ads on Athens trams and Thessaloniki buses. I think they had such a campaign twice in Athens.

    the "advance bookings"-guru told us something else

    with Wizz flying to FMM and FKB and JU already thin to STR its pointless to have this route but its typical for Eurowings

      Road from FMM to Stuttgart is not the best, full of curves and takes a long time. LCC airport for Stuttgart is FKB. FMM is the alternative to MUC and it covered SZG until we got non-stop flights on Wizz Air. The only local airline that cares about the market.

      only in theory. FMM is closer to southern and eastern parts of BaWü then FKB.

      Landing in FMM is spectacular especially if your approach includes flying into the airport from the Alps.

    Eurowings is sill for launching this route, they should have launched NUE-BEG when they had the Q400. It's the perfect aircraft for such a market.
