Priority Check-In is not available at all stations Air Serbia flies to. Air Serbia reserves the right to control where and at what stations the service might be sold at and change the list any time

Air Serbia does not control at what stations the service might be delivered at, as this is controlled by each airport Air Serbia flies to individually. As a general rule, Air Serbia does not offer the service when its flight is operated by an ATR aircraft.

Purchasing the service

Air Serbia does not allow service reservation. Service is to be booked and paid at the moment of making the reservation for it, otherwise Air Serbia would not be able to guarantee service fulfilment.

It can be purchased up to 60min prior to departure the latest (only at the airport desk check-in counter).

Priority Check-In is purchased per passenger.

In the event of a family or group travel, companion travelers do not get the services free of charge if one of the passengers on the reservation purchased the service (every passenger would have to pay for it separately).

Priority Check-In fee applies equally to adults and children (age 2 to 12). Infants without a seat (babies of up to 2 years of age) are exempted from the fee as long as all accompanying passengers on the same reservation paid priority check-in fee.
