"Our Sales and Contact Centre continue to receive numerous queries about when flights will commence, which is an excellent indicator that there is great interest for travel from our passengers and the citizens of Serbia. We are responding to the demand to recommence flights to as many destinations as soon as possible, within the limitations of the restrictions imposed in numerous jurisdictions. However, we are gradually restoring the traffic, and that’s good news", stated Duncan Naysmith, CEO of Air Serbia. He called on passengers to ensure that they comply with the regulations set out by the regulatory authorities.
All updates will be available on the airline’s website and social media platforms. In addition, the call centre or retail offices can be contacted to clarify any requests.
It was stated earlier that Air Serbia, in addition to the aforementioned flights to the region and New York, will also organize a limited number of flights to London Heathrow, Frankfurt, Zurich and Vienna between 21 May to 14 June. If the EU travel restrictions are lifted from 15 June, Air Serbia plans to increase the number of passenger flights.
The final flight schedule will depend on demand and the decisions and guidelines of domestic, foreign and international bodies and authorities in charge of civil aviation, and changes to travel restrictions and public health measures in countries to which Air Serbia operates flights. On its flights, Air Serbia will be implementing all necessary safety measures, in accordance with the highest safety and hygiene standards, as well as instructions of competent domestic and international regulatory bodies. As always, the safety of our passengers and crew members are our number one priority.
