will launch direct flights between Belgrade and Chicago (O'Hare International Airport - ORD) starting on 17 May 2023, thus continuing to expand its operations in the United States market.
After a pause of more than 30 years, the Serbian national airline is again starting a service to the famous Windy City, the press release says.
Until 11 June, flights will be operated twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays, while as of 12 June, Belgrade-Chicago flights will be operated three times a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. Flights will last approximately 11 hours and will be operated by Airbus A330 aircraft from Air Serbia’s long-haul fleet.
By re-opening the route, Air Serbia will, via Belgrade, provide good connections between Chicago and other cities in its network, such as Athens, Vienna, Berlin, Bologna, Bucharest, Dubrovnik, Istanbul, Larnaca, Ljubljana, Prague, Pula, Podgorica, Rome, Sarajevo, Skopje, Sofia, Tivat, Venice, Zagreb, and many others.
On the other hand, thanks to its interline partnership with JetBlue and American Airlines, Air Serbia will be able to offer better connections to passengers who will continue their travels toward other locations in North America from Chicago and New York.
