Air Serbia pushes back E195 entry into service

NEWS FLASH


Air Serbia has delayed the launch of its in-house Embraer E195 operations until August 1. The airline initially planned to commence flights from Belgrade with one of the E195s on July 15 and the second on August 1. However, both jets are now expected to enter into service on August 1. On that day, the first destinations that will see Air Serbia’s E195 are Gothenburg and Milan Malpensa during the morning wave of departures and Sarajevo and Thessaloniki during the afternoon wave. The aircraft are expected to be scheduled on more routes and changes remain possible. Both of Air Serbia’s E195s are now in Belgrade. They will bear the registrations YU-ATA and YU-ATB. The airline has previously said it intends to introduce the Embraers into the fleet in July but that it has planned a one month buffer.

      Honestly and pardon my French because Greeks were d**cks. They were creating so many bureaucratic problems for JU and most of the time they had a hard time getting access to the planes. Luckily all that is resolved now and now we just have to wait for our glorious directorate to do their job and finalize the paperwork.

      Sounds more like a DCV issue rather than a Marathon issue if both jets are already sitting in BEG for some time now.

      Marathon probably didn't want the jets depart

      I am pretty sure Marathon has to "release" some documents in order for JU to be able to fully take over the jets. Will JU be suing Marathon for the incident?

      The jets are not owned by Marathon but by Great Dane Airlines.

      Yes but Marathon had the lease which was terminated after the incident

    As odd as it seems, Idk why JU and Bulgaria Air not work closer together. They have code-shares, 2 of their Embraers operate for JU, JU flies to 2 Bulgarian cities, etc. They can help each other and maybe utilise their A220s in the future from BEG.

      It's political divide. For example same reason why JU and OU don't work closer together or JU and 40 or OU and 40 or OU and FB.

      It would be great for closer cooperation that would be more beneficial for both sides. Especially bulgaria who loses a lot to ryanair, wizz and turkis. hbut both sides unwilling to progress forward for it.

    And yet this was meant to fix the capacity issues. I wonder if the A330s will also be delayed. Marek gave himself room to move.
