From Sunday, October 27, Air Serbia switches to the winter flight schedule, which will last until March 28, 2020. During the peak of the season in December and January, the national airline will operate 596 flights a week, which is an increase of 90 flights, or almost 18 percent over to the same period last year.

This year’s winter schedule of Air Serbia has been expanded with seven new destinations in which travelers have been most interested so far.

Air Serbia will also increase the number of flights on popular routes such as the ones from Belgrade to Ljubljana, Skopje, Bucharest, Larnaca, Thessaloniki, Tirana and Venice.

– We are ready to welcome the winter season which will be very intensive, considering that in the previous period we have significantly expanded the network of our destinations and created another home base at Niš, Constantine the Great Airport. The winter flight schedule was created in accordance with the wishes and needs of our guests, so the largest number of flights is scheduled for the peak of the winter season, precisely to the destinations which generate the most interest – stated Air Serbia’s CEO Duncan Naysmith.
In addition to direct flights to the most popular European and international destinations, thanks to code-share agreements with prominent international airlines, Air Serbia will connect Belgrade with cities such as Abu-Dhabi, Melbourne, Singapore, Bangkok, Hong Kong and many others around the globe.
