Air Serbia negotiating codeshare with US carrier

NEWS FLASH


Air Serbia is negotiating a codeshare partnership with an airline from the United States to strengthen its operations to New York and upcoming new service to Chicago. Air Serbia's CEO, Jiri Marek, said, “We are in the final stage of negotiations and an announcement could be made maybe in the very near future, before the end of the year". He added that interest from other carriers to codeshare with Air Serbia could grow further due to the airline's planned US expansion, which will see it maintain daily flights between Belgrade and New York, as well as introduce a new two weekly service to Chicago.

  1. JetBlue would be a perfect scenario for them;
    And also for us, as passengers

      What advantage has Jet Blue over other airlines? I am just curious as I don't know enough US carriers.

      What about ORD?

      American would be ideal for both, though then they’d have to transfer to terminal 1 at JFK and go to terminal 3 at ORD, whilst terminal 5 at ORD is better connected with European carriers.

      So?

      Well, they made such a big deal of the need to get out of where they were due to the costs of operating into that terminal - citing it as one of the reasons which was contributing to the losses on the route. They also said the new terminal is so much better than the previous one. So if they have to go back there to make it easier/better for pax to connect to/from B6 flights, it negates the whole point of moving out of there.

      Good enough for you ?

      They said changing A330 to a better lease agreement pushed the route to profitability, not terminal change. You are overreacting.

      Anon 11:59 Your comment is funny. Actually it's sad:

      -One comment does not mean it's B6.
      -They never said new terminal is so much better now. Everyone knows future plans for T1 reconstruction. That would one day make T1 more modern and better than T4.
      -Common sense points to AA as the ideal codeshare partner with major hubs at both ORD and JFK.

    Given the fact that United's largest base is in Chicago and they are strong in Newark I'd say it's United.

      I agree its probably United Ohare. But it could be Midway? 🤔

      It 100% is not Midway. In the press release they announced O’hare, and no international carriers choose Midway over O’hare.

      POZDRAV I certainly prefer Croatia airlines and its narrow destinations routes and be on time than Air Serbia's everyday delay schedule , where in Belgrade airport especial in the afternoon (I was there two days ago ) you can hear swears from angry and frustrated passengers of Air Serbia !

      I agree. AA would be better since thw regional network is the largest

    Ahh honestly JetBlue does not cover the US well…. I’m hoping for American Airlines (largest airline in the world), obviously, as it has major bases in both JFK & ORD… covers many, most if not all places around North America from the 2 hubs.. would be ideal, they already interline with them too, but you guys are all saying JetBlue.

    It’s probably AA when they are the worst. Paying maybe delta buy they aren’t that big there.

  9. AirSerbia should try to get a bigger part of passengers from down under. Either start mid-eastern flights or try southeast Asia to pick them up from there.

  10. I'm beginning to respect Jiri. He and his team are making all the right moves. And I'm sure Vucic and his progressive economic agenda had some input as well.

    Anyone know what the different Air Serbia scarf colours/uniforms in the photo represent? I know blue is standard cabin staff and red is the purser. But what is white scarf? And the red unformed flight attendant without the hat?

      White is cabin manager on the A330. Red uniform is sky nanny on the A330 - crew member that helps parents with children.

    American Airlines would be perfect. They have a wider regional network than other USA airlines. Especially if it's Chicago or nyc

    Hopefully Air Serbia selects American Airlines as a partner in the USA since AA has already shown an interest in developing routes in Eastern Europe and with AIr Serbia not aligned in an Alliance they could be beneficial partners to each other on both sides of the Atlantic. ONEDWORLD could also use a carrier to give additional lift in Eastern Europe.

      Selects ... lol
      It's not like US carriers are rushing to sign a deal with JU. It's the other way around. JU needs to get them to be interested. At the end of the day is is B6, not AA, UA or DL.

      B6 was their first interline partner there and one of Dane's top people at JU works for them now.

    3. Anonymous09:05

      @Anon 07:47, yes but B6 does not connect Chicago well with the US at all. I still think it will be AA, since both ORD and JFK are their hubs.

      Article hints at more than one airline. It might end up being both JetBlue and American.
