Air Serbia transfer network to play key role in Chicago success


Air Serbia is preparing to introduce its second destination in the United States next April with Chicago to be launched with a two weekly rotation. The carrier’s regional network, which is expected to be strengthened in the lead-up to its new transatlantic service, will play a key role in its success. “With the introduction of Belgrade - Chicago flights, for the first time after 32 years, the capital of Serbia will be directly connected to the American city where approximately 350.000 residents of Serbian origin reside, as well as a large number of those hailing from other countries of the former Yugoslavia and neighbouring Balkan states, which are, and will be, well-connected with Belgrade via the regional Air Serbia network”, the carrier said.

On Air Serbia’s existing long haul service between Belgrade and New York, 58% of travellers are transfers. Of those, 39% are transferring via Belgrade, while the remaining 19% do so via JFK Airport. In the pre-pandemic 2019, passengers flying from Podgorica to New York via Belgrade made the greatest proportion of transfers on the route. They were followed by those from Tirana, Skopje, Athens, Tel Aviv, Tivat, Thessaloniki, Zagreb, Ljubljana, Vienna, and Bucharest. Similar figures are expected for the upcoming Chicago service, with the airline also looking at attracting more connecting passengers from the Middle East and North Africa.

Among the former Yugoslav capitals, excluding Belgrade, data indicates that Zagreb has the most traffic to the Windy City. Lufthansa is the main carrier of choice for flights between the Croatian capital and Chicago, handling 20% of the market, followed by LOT Polish Airlines with 14% and British Airways with a 12% market share. Skopje followed Zagreb with the most travellers headed to Chicago, then Sarajevo, Podgorica and Ljubljana. The Windy City was the second busiest destination for travel in the United States from all former Yugoslav capitals after New York, with exception to Ljubljana, where it was third, behind both the Big Apple and San Francisco. Although Air Serbia does not serve Pristina, it had more travellers to Chicago than Podgorica.

      NO. On every aircraft there are passengers paying different amount of money for their flight. Some with pay really a lot, then there is a group paying less, but still a lot, then a group paying a moderate amount, a group paying little and finally a group flying more or less for a bargain.

      The profitability and therefore sustainability of the route depends on this mix. How many passengers of the different groups and how much passenger from a given group actually pays (especially the high paying ones).

      If you have onboard only the last group, as an airline you will lose a lot of money despite having a full plane. Charge 1 EUR and you will always have a full plane but no money.

      The success of the route is determined by the number of passengers paying for direct flights high tariffs, but also passengers paying high transfer tariffs. The legacy business is all about getting such passengers.

      You may have onboard passengers that in order to pay low price will be happy to transfer three times and wait each time 10 hours overnight, but this will not bring you as an airline money. For an airline it is better to have that dime than not, but this is only an addition to the money you need to make on better paying passengers. Or otherwise it is not sustainable.

      It is a pity that exyuaviation does not show us stats concerning pricings on different routes (if is available to exyuaviation in the access it purchased to the stats).

      Pricing is the biggest secret in aviation business, and nobody would reveal details. However there are some common sence works that could be done; lease, admin,advertisment costs, maintanance insurance plus operational like kerosene, overflight and airport taxes, crew, hotels and all that divide by number of flights/seat count and you would get an idea of how much money that seat needs to bring…thsn include LF, seasonality and historic data and you will be closer…

      OU is able to send an A319 out to SKP, I don't see how JU can't. JU has a much larger network on offer. We saw yesterday that some of SKP's top underserved destinations are actually in the JU network.

      If tickets weren't starting at 13.000 din without luggage maybe they would attract more of the O&D market. A319 would help distribute the flight costs over more seats, enabling them to have more competitive fares.

      OU sends the A319 because of cargo. If you look at the article from the other day about SKP, BEG is ahead of ZAG in terms of passengers. It means they get to carry more passengers with the ATR than OU with high density A319.

      @13,23

      There is also a highway to Vienna and we have up to 5 flights a day.

      Zagreb is closer and had similar frequencies to SKP.

      Not everyone drives. Bus to Skoplje is between 6 and a half to 8 and a half hours. Throw in fares starting at 5.500-6.500 din return and loads will increase.

      @13,40

      I read the article. The numbers were for last year when JU had more frequencies to SKP. Prior to the pandemic it was OU that had more passengers, larger capacity and more frequencies. It is quite possible that this year it will be back to OU being better in SKP.

      JU is growing on the Croatian market. We can expect more frequencies to follow. SPU and DBV could start having a second daily frequency on some days, perhaps a morning rotation to connect onto the long haul flights. SPU and DBV miss some connections to the Balkan region as well where JU could be an attractive transfer point. It would be great to see either SPU or DBV move away from being seasonal routes and flown year round, at least with a couple of flights a week on an ATR.

      Greece has kind of taken a step back at JU. It isn't too drastic but still a step back. There has been talk of a third route to Greece in the past, Ionnina in particular. There is definitely some room for JU to expand in Greece.

    Bilo bi interesantno videti koliko je od 19% transfernih putnika na JFK nastavilo ka ORD. Još uvek nisu ulistali zimski red letenja za JFK,mogli bi brže da ažuriraju svoju web stranicu.

  35. Chicago will be a great addition and will be profitable much quicker than JFK. But forget about LAX. Jet Blue has been trying to secure a gate in LAX since their inception.Air Serbia cannot afford LAX nor are there any gates available

    Do we have any idea what the flight numbers for additional long-haul would be?

      I'm assuming they will use the same flight number that JAT used for Chicago. JU506/507

    I feel Shanghai and Beijing would be left to Chinese carriers and JU would serve additionals. It would be a wicked move. Take cargo heavy routes where lack of passengers can be easily compensated and simultaneously grab a piece of cake.

      Smart comment. Hainan started Beijing-Belgrade and Air China is likely to start Shanghai. That leaves TSN and another unserved destination for Air Serbia, possibly Guangzhou. What CAN lacks in passenger demand from Belgrade would be offset by cargo.

      This is where third Air Serbia A330 would come in handy during 2023 or early 2024. Not to expand to new destination like Toronto but to grow frequencies to existing destinations JFK, ORD, TSN and possibly CAN. I can't see Air Serbia launching YYZ or any other long haul destination before getting 4th A330 and that might take at least 4-5 years.

  38. If I were them I would increase frequencies to Sofia, Bucharest, Thessaloniki, Dubrovnik & Split (make the last two year round). Ideally up the capacity to Sarajevo, Tirana, Zagreb, Skopje & Ljubljana (use A319s) and then introduce Budapest, Krakow, Pristina (if possible), Tel Aviv, Amman & Cairo. Goes without saying that they have to get the scheduling right so that all of these can feed both USA destinations. TIV & TGD are fine as is I'd say.

      I think TGD could do with a midnight rotation. Something that will get back to BEG around 0530 in time for the first wave.

      80/20 "rule" means Podgorica, Tirana and Skopje probably generate 80% transfers to JFK and so will ORD. Depending on slots they are getting at ORD it might require some timing tweaks on those Air Serbia key feeder routes but I don't see the need to go crazy with all regional destinations.

      If I'm not wrong, TGD is closed during night so JU can't do such rotation.

      @George - well, if you look at their timetable you will see that they mostly cover whole region with morning wave. Plus Sochi and Moscow. Their latest "night arrival" is Moscow at 06:20 and before that they have 8-9 morning arrivals between 05:00-05:30 to perfectly fit in their "morning wave". This morning wave can be increased (send A319 instead of ATR) but lets take it easy. Additional A330 will generate additional 250 demand seats for daily departures, it is NOT as much as it looks like

    From the latest Chicago census, top 5 nationalities.

    Irish: (201,836)
    German: (200,392)
    Polish: (179,868)
    Italian: (96,599)
    English: (60,307)

    Those 350 thousand Serbs must have all been away on census night.

      You have no clue how census data is collected in the US and you can see that a change in the census question resulted in a huge decline in people declaring themselves as Serbs in previous two census.

      Same as there is only 2% of Serbs and 1.6% of Bosniaks in Slovenia if you look at the last census numbers :)

    JU already has a good network .
    Their next goal should be an expansion of frequencies .
    Twice a week Madrid or Sochi are obviously a joke .

    Guys is it me or did JU silently boost Sochi? I see three weekly in their system.
