Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, travel between Moscow and Belgrade is in high demand, primarily due to Russian tourists visiting the Serbian countryside in organised tour groups. Demand is also being generated by transfer passengers. Both Serbian and Russian citizens are able to travel between each other’s countries without restrictions with a negative Covid-19 PCR test, however, they must fly on the nonstop Belgrade - Moscow service to avoid quarantine upon entering Russia. Russia’s S7 Airlines recently scheduled its flights from Moscow to Belgrade starting next month.

      Цене су нажалост надуване јер је број летова ограничен. Пре короне СУ је има 21 лет, ЈУ 10, Ред Вингз 4 што изађе на 35 недељних а сада смо на 14. Уз све то, нису поново успостављени летови за Краснодар те и тај број људи који је лете између два града (30% укупних путника) сада мора преко Москве. Мора се мало растеретити број ограничења.

      Dokle god postoji ograničenje na broj frekvencija, cene će biti ludačke. Tek kada dozvole 3-4 leta dnevnocene će krenuti da se smiruju

    4. Da li neko može da pojasni zašto su uvedena ograničenja, od koga, i da li su opravdana?

      Руси су увели ограничења наводно због короне. Доста су контрадикторни. Кажу да се само може летети за Москву а онда дозволе ТКу да лети за Ростов, Уфу, Петровград...

    Can someone explain me the reciprocity between JU and Aeroflot on this route. Russians seems to be sending more capacity on this route then JU. And I'm not talking about other Russian carriers flying into BEG.

    Thanks

      Capacity is not restricted, frequencies are. JU has already upgraded all flights to A320 and now they started sending the A332.
      SU also has a flight less than JU so please be mindful of that.

    Wow, well done for Serbia tourism: niche activity (countryside) is becoming main stream, I was not expecting that!

    I won't even say "Niche" anymore.
    Before this Covid there was a real buzz around traveling to Serbia and not just Belgrade.

    I'm from Manchester and know lots of people from the NW of England who've travelled to the likes of Zlatibor etc.
    Beautiful countryside, nice people and great food. Plenty going for Serbia on the tourist front, so not really surprised the Russians are coming.

    Nis is/was becoming a favourite city break destination as well for English people with a sense of adventure, it's something different to the usual Berlin, Paris etc...And why not, great city to visit, just wish we had direct flights from the NW of England.

      KVO will have a lot of winter charter potential once the airport opens for larger aircraft.

      Yupp, I know that, but also thought they used a more comfy configuration of some 350 seats on such an exhausting journey.

    Svaka čast. Mislim da bi Turkish airlines trebao po mom mišljenju tokom ljeta uvesti A333 ili B777 u Beograd, Sarajevo i Zagreb, zbog velike potražnje, a da umjesto FlyDubaia leti Emirates u ova tri grada

      SU is not sending huge planes every day of the week.

      JU also sends A330-200.

      The point of sale for this tours is Russia and Aeroflot also transports ex-Russia bound pax.
