Air Serbia has announced that it is resuming flights to over ten destinations, continuing to recover its system during June.
The airline carrier has confirmed that it will resume operations from Belgrade to 19 destinations – Athens, Barcelona, Berlin, Brussels, Bucharest, Dusseldorf, Copenhagen, Istanbul, Larnaca, Milan, Stockholm, Sofia, Stuttgart, Prague, Rome, Tel Aviv, Thessaloniki, Tirana and Zagreb, between June 15 and 21.
Air Serbia will add to the four routes which were re-established last week, including Frankfurt, Vienna, London Heathrow and Zurich, as well as destinations which will be resumed over the next two weeks, namely, Amsterdam, Paris, Ljubljana, Banjaluka, Sarajevo, Skopje, Podgorica, Tivat
and New York
The resumed flights will initially be far less frequent than initially planned for the summer season 2020, before the COVID-19 outbreak.
The frequency at the regional routes, which are to be resumed in late May and early June, will increase during the second half of the next month.
The Serbian airline carrier has confirmed that flights to Helsinki, Malta, Rijeka, Cairo and Beirut will not be resumed for the time being. They are categorized as temporarily discontinued. However, new services are planned for 2020, including Lviv, Amman, Florence, Kishinev, Rostov-on-Don and Geneva.
In the end, the scope of the airline's services will depend on the decision and guidelines of state, foreign and international bodies and organs of civil aviation, as well as the changes in restrictions on travel which are in effect in the destination countries.
Commenting on the current operations, the CEO of Air Serbia, Duncan Naysmith, said last week:
– We want our passengers to know that we have taken and implemented all the necessary measures, in line with the highest safety and hygiene standards, as well as the guidelines of local authorities and international regulators. We have also proactively implemented many measures which are above the industrial standards, so as to protect our passengers and crew as well as possible. As always, the safety of our passengers and crew remain our number one priority – Naysmith said.
