Throughout the upcoming summer season, Air Serbia will increase the number of flights to New York, and from 18 June until the beginning of September, it will fly to this American city seven times a week, daily. Air Serbia’s biggest increase in the number of weekly flights to New York to date is the result of the recent expansion of its long-haul fleet. In addition to the Airbus A330-200 aircraft bearing the image of Nikola Tesla, as of November last year, the national airline has also been using an Airbus A330-200 bearing the image of Mihajlo Pupin.
“Air Serbia has been flying to New York for seven years now. During this time, the number of weekly flights changed, but it never exceeded six. In the meantime, we have undertaken a series of activities, from strengthening our fleet to expanding our cabin crew team, and thanks to that, we can now proudly announce that we will be operating flights to New York every day, all summer long,” said George Petkovic, Air Serbia’s Vice President Americas.
Since 2016, more than 460,000 passengers have been carried on Air Serbia’s Belgrade-New York flights. It is one of the best destinations in the national airline’s network. During the winter season, Air Serbia operated flights between Belgrade and New York three times a week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays.
Starting on 17 May 2023, Air Serbia will commence scheduled direct flights between Belgrade and Chicago, thus continuing its expansion in the United States market. In the period until 12 June, flights to Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) will be operated two times a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and as of 12 June, three times a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. Tickets are available for purchase on the website, via the mobile app, as well as in Air Serbia’s stores, and ticket sales have already surpassed expectations, considering that this is an entirely new route.
By increasing the number of flights between Belgrade and New York, and by commencing flights to Chicago, during the upcoming summer season, the Serbian national airline will offer up to 10 weekly flights between the capital of Serbia and North America.
Thanks to Air Serbia’s partnership with American Airlines, simpler trips from Belgrade, via New York and Chicago, to the east and west coasts of the United States are possible, which enables the national airline to provide its passengers with even better connectivity between Serbia, the region and Europe and different destinations all across the U.S.
