Air Serbia extends Hainan Airlines cooperation


Air Serbia has renewed its Special Prorate Agreement with Hainan Airlines enabling passengers to reach Beijing from Belgrade via Brussels, Berlin and Moscow. “When Hainan Airlines decides to increase capacity to Europe and when the Chinese market additionally opens up, passengers will be able to travel from Beijing to other destinations in China”, Air Serbia said. The two carriers have been cooperating since 2016. In 2017, Hainan Airlines launched flights from Beijing to Belgrade via Prague, which ran for a year. China was Belgrade Airport’s largest unserved market prior to the pandemic. In 2019, Shanghai was the busiest unserved route from the Serbian capital, followed by Beijing. Jointly, the two cities accounted for 114.641 indirect passengers at Belgrade Airport.

    Hopefully prices will be more reasonable. JU-CA via VIE was like €1.100.

    how is this number of 114.641 indirect passengers includes calculated. Does it count one passenger arrival and departure at BEG once, or twice?

    Its fascinating to see how they are focused on PEK while ignoring PVG, which has the larger demand.

    Once direct flights are established we will see a significant increase in trade/investment. Airline travel is not only about tourism, it's also about business, and right now China are the world leaders in investment.

    With so much Chinese investment in Serbia, it looks like Belgrade is headed to become the Vancouver of Europe.
