Air Serbia to launch Trieste and Bologna flights

Air Serbia to launch Trieste and Bologna flights
21 January 2022

Air Serbia, the national airline of the Republic of Serbia, will commence scheduled flights between Belgrade and Trieste on 2 June, as well as a scheduled Belgrade-Bologna service on June 6. Flights to both destinations in Italy will operate three times a week - to Trieste on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, and to Bologna on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

With the introduction of flights to Trieste and Bologna, and existing flights to Rome and Milan, as well as announced flights to Venice and Bari, Italy becomes the market with the currently largest number of destinations to which Air Serbia operates from Belgrade - six in total.

"The decision to introduce new destinations in Italy is the result of the strategic importance of renewing and strengthening our presence in one of the most visited countries in the world. Italy represents an extremely important market, both for our airline and for Serbia, due to close economic ties between our two countries. We are especially glad to commence direct flights to Trieste, the city with the biggest Serbian diaspora in Italy, while services to Bologna will furthermore contribute to strengthen our cultural and economic relations with Italy", said Bojan Aranđelović, Head of Network Planning and Scheduling at Air Serbia.

Located in the northernmost part of the Adriatic Sea, at the very border of Italy with Slovenia, Trieste is the capital of autonomous province Friuli-Venezia Giulia and represents the coastal gate to northern Italy, Germany, Austria and Central Europe. By adding Trieste to its international network of destinations, Air Serbia will cover the region of northeast Italy, as well as a part of Slovenian cities in the vicinity. Combined with flights to Venice, the national airline will operate six flights a week to this part of Italy.

By establishing flights on this route, Air Serbia will provide seamless connections, via Belgrade, between Trieste and other cities in its network, such as Athens, Dubrovnik, Istanbul, Larnaca, New York, Podgorica, Skopje, Thessaloniki, Tirana and Tivat.

Bologna, the capital of the richest Italian region, Emilia-Romagna, and the seventh biggest city in Italy, is known as the culinary and student capital of this country, with numerous museums and a historic centre protected by UNESCO. Every corner of this dynamic student metropolis takes one back to the glorious past, when Dante Alighieri and Francesco Petrarca sat in the amphitheatre of the oldest University in Europe.

By introducing flights to Bologna, Air Serbia will provide great connections between this city and other destinations in its network, such as Athens, Bucharest, Zurich, Dubrovnik, Istanbul, Krasnodar, Larnaca, Moscow, Podgorica, Sarajevo, Skopje, Sofia, Thessaloniki, Tirana and Tivat.

In 2019, Air Serbia operated flights between Niš and Bologna two times a week, while its predecessor Jat Airways operated flights on the Belgrade-Trieste route, three times a week, until May 2011.
