The carrier will start a five-a-week, non-stop service between Belgrade and New York in June 2016, which will be operated on an Airbus A330-200, the airline’s first wide-body aircraft.
“This is a great and positive symbol for Serbia. No other country in the region has a direct air service to the USA, which is why there is such a huge interest in the new offering from Air Serbia. I am very happy that today, at the Tourism Fair, we can announce the start of ticket sales on the Belgrade – New York route,” emphasized Prime Minister Vučić.
Siniša Mali, Chairman of Air Serbia and Mayor of Belgrade, said: “The Air Serbia New York service will have a huge impact upon Serbia and the city of Belgrade, bringing many thousands of business and leisure travelers from the United States.
Operating five times a week, the flight will depart New York at 2:40 PM on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, to land in Belgrade’s Nikola Tesla Airport at 5:30 AM. On Friday and Saturday, it will depart JFK at 7:30 PM to arrive in Belgrade at 10:20 AM. The return service will depart Belgrade at 7:30 AM on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, to arrive in JFK International Airport at 12:00 PM. On Fridays and Saturdays, the service will take off from Belgrade at 12:55 PM to land in JFK at 5:25 PM.
To celebrate the new service, Air Serbia is offering travelers in the United States special promotional fares, with round trips originating from New York starting at only $799 for Economy Class and $3,499 for Business Class, including taxes and charges.
