Air Serbia boosts Istanbul operations


Air Serbia will be adding flights on its service between Belgrade and Istanbul starting September 19, with the carrier to maintain daily operations, outstripping its pre-pandemic frequencies. The development will come just over a month after Air Serbia and Turkish Airlines inked a wide-ranging codeshare agreement. As a result, Air Serbia will offer 2.016 seats per week to Turkey’s largest city. “Adding two weekly flight to Istanbul is a clear indicator of the increasing demand by our passengers for flights to the city on the Bosphorus, as well as the good connections Air Serbia offers via Belgrade to Vienna, Berlin, Zurich, Paris, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Ljubljana, Podgorica, Prague, Tivat, Zagreb, Stuttgart and other European cities”, Air Serbia’s General Manager for Commercial and Strategy, Jiri Marek, said. The Serbian carrier resumed flights to Istanbul in December 2019 following a two-year hiatus.

    So the TK A332 was because of demand I guess.

    TK also increased BEG to 10 times a week. I expect them to use widebodies like they recently flew with A330.

    Pegasus flies 5 times a week to SAW. (they're allowed to)

    Air Serbia increases to daily flights now.

    The codeshare signed with TK was the best thing happened to Air Serbia in 2020. Can you just guess how many people see and hear that in TK's domestic flights it says ''this flight is code-shared with Air Serbia'' on board and see Air Serbia's flight number on the screens.

    Such a great way to promote the brand.

    When things get back to normal, I really expect;

    3 daily TK (at least one widebody, 787-9 or A330)
    1 daily AS (+ maybe another Turkish destination such as Ankara or Izmir)
    1 daily Pegasus to SAW.

      Was that A332 flight a once-off (maybe cargo demand)?

      We had two TK A321s in BEG last night, at the same time... SJJ flight diverted to BEG due to weather.

    Očekujem da kada se situacija normalizuje AS uvede letove za
    IST i u četvrtom talasu.

    Stvarno netko smatra da ce putnik iz Turske letjeti za FRA, DUS, STR, VIE... u vrijeme Covida a ima nekoliko direktnih letova dnevno.

    Stvarno je tako sto izjavio?

      Sigurno bolje zna od tebe gde mu putnici idu i kako.

      Наравно да има. ТК уопште није јефтин ако летиш из Турске. За трансфере јесу.
