Air Serbia and ITA Airways ink codeshare deal


Air Serbia and Italy’s new national carrier ITA Airways have signed a wide-ranging codeshare agreement. Air Serbia will place its JU designator code and flight numbers onto ITA’s services from Rome to Athens, Tirana, Bari, Brindisi, Genoa, Catania, Lamezia Terme, Palermo, Turin, Trieste and Venice. On the other hand, ITA will place its code and flights numbers onto Air Serbia’s operations from Rome and Milan to Belgrade, as well as from the Serbian capital to Athens, Banja Luka, Bucharest, Ljubljana, Podgorica, Sarajevo, Sofia, Skopje, Thessaloniki, Tivat and Tirana. Air Serbia’s General Manager for Commercial and Strategy, Jiri Marek, said, “Italy is a very important market, both for Serbia, and the region, which clearly confirms the strategic importance of the established partnership. We are happy to continue cultivating traditionally good relations with the Italian national airline. Also, we are pleased that we are helping improve and strengthen cultural and economic ties between our countries. It will be our great pleasure to welcome the passengers of our partner ITA Airways on Air Serbia’s flights, with our widely-known hospitality”. ITA has previously said it plans to launch operations between Rome and Belgrade next August.

    Say what you want about the way JU is run, but their reaction time is blazing fast lately.

    Good news, this will help them in the fight against W6. Unfortunately their codeshare tickets are crazy expensive

    Wizz Air has been very unreliable with new routes lately. They canceled my friend’s flight to Barcelona in February and it looks like they discontinued sales on this route until the start of the 2022 summer season. Who knows if Rome will materialize or not…

    Interesting that JU places it's code on flights to TIA and ATH when they have direct flights. Who is going to fly to those 2 cities via Rome and pay extra as codeshare flights are always more expensive!?!

      No idea.

    2. I think it's meant more for passengers who fly triangle routes such as BEG-ATH-FCO-BEG. That way you can fly multiple carriers on the same ticket.
