The Russian airline Red Wings have postponed the launch of a regular air service between Moscow (Domodedovo Airport) and Belgrade. The first flight, which should have taken place on June 12, was moved to June 26 in the company's new flight schedule.

The Iranian airline Mahan Air is also postponing flights from Tehran to Belgrade. Instead of early June, as initially planned, this airline will carry out its first flight to Belgrade on June 28. Mahan Air first announced this regular service in February, but it only had four flights in March and two in April. In the meantime, the company obtained a new permit by the Serbian aviation authorities, but has postponed the launch of the new service several times.

Iran Air, the country's national airline, is currently operating the Tehran – Belgrade route with two flights a week.

Iranian tourists are visiting Belgrade and Serbia in ever greater numbers, leading to an increase in interest among Iranian airlines and tour-operators. Kish Air, a private charter airline, had planned to launch regular charter flights between Shiraz and Belgrade with one flight a week, beginning with June 18. As Aviatica learned, this airline gave up on flights to Belgrade while its request for a permit was still being processed by the Serbian aviation authorities.

Another airline is giving up on flights to Belgrade. Qatar Airways, which operates the Doha – Belgrade route seven times a week, had planned to add another service, which was supposed to be available four times a week, starting with June 12. Although the Serbian aviation authorities issued the necessary permit, no additional flights were implemented. It is not yet known when these flights will be made available, if at all.
