    With 10 ATR will JU finally be able to add the second daily flight to SJJ?

      It's possible. Split morning/evening rotations would work nicely for SJJ.

      They'll probably introduce a few more mid day rotations to Ljubljana

      Hopefully Air Serbia will upgrade BNX to daily to BEG

    I find the new Atr72 600 from Air Serbia very comfortable. The seat distance is also very comfortable given my height of 1.86m. The noise level in the cabin is also very low for a propeller aircraft.

      Such comments about space are not too welcome because they will bring their attention resulting in increased number of seats! )))

      I have to agree on this, I have recently flown three times on the ATR. I am 188cm and about 120kg and it was very comfortable.

      Flights are actually at the same level as last year while they have fewer wet leased aircraft this year.

    I think AirSerbia may utilize 2-3 ATR42 for everyday rotatios to Banja Luka, Tuzla, Kraljevo, Nis, Timisoara, Osijek and other close airports for transfer flights.

      They could all fill 72's with the right scheduling.

      It”s very simple. If a passenger from, for instance Osijek want to travel to Barcelona, New York, Oslo or some other destination from JU network, he will choose Lufthansa transfer, because no connection to Air Serbia hub. For Air Serbia would be good if this short flight cost even 20 Euro per passenger, just to steal him from LH. If that is dumb or burning money, you guys know very little about the business and aviation industry

      Driving to OSI, check in, boarding plus the flight is longer than just driving to BEG. Tuzla is similar. Timisoara slightly longer by car. Even daily flights would leave a tonne of destinations not reachable by just driving to BEG. Short flights like this leave out capacity for other routes which would serve all these cities plus BEG alot better.

      All listed cities are more than 3 hours driving by car, plus borders which in summertime takes around 3-4+ hours also and trip costs are way much more than 20 Euro by car. And not everybody has a car. I mentioned extra leasing of smaller 50-seater planes just for this close destinations.These planes may take up to 5 daily rotations becauce flights would take not more than 30-40 minutes

      It takes as long to drive from Belgrade to Timisoara, as from Belgrade to Budapest. No difference at all. Speed limits in Serbian part of Banat are apalling (in Romania much is 100 kph).

      And I don't get the bloody 'take the car' option. It is not an organized form of transport, when you look how to get from NYC to Timisoara online, it'll list transfering options, and not a trip via Belgrade, with 'car' being a second leg!

    I still hope they start MBX soon. It would really be a nice regional route to bring them closer to their goal of 100 routes at 100 years.

    I jist read that a low cost us carrier just went bankrupt. I'm sure their aircraft will go for a relatively good price

    Is ATR more economical and profitable than Embraer or A319?
