The most frequent are once again Antalya in Turkey and Hurghada in Egypt. Air Serbia will also operate charters from Niš to Antalya, Gizpasa and Hurghada, with services to commence in mid-June. “Although the peak travel period is still in June, July, August, and mid-September, in the last few years we have also seen growth in charter services during April, May, October, and November”, the airline said. Last year, Air Serbia operated a total of 1.100 round trip charter flights, carrying some 140.000 passengers.
The Serbian carrier is expected to see a boost in demand next month after the basketball EuroLeague Final Four tournament, which was due to be held in Berlin, was moved to Belgrade due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
In line with the expected finalists and spike in demand, the airline is increasing capacity on flights to Athens and Barcelona, with teams from Greece, Spain and Turkey expected to take part. In the coming period, Air Serbia also plans to expand its Airbus fleet, to complement the addition of regional turboprop aircraft.
The carrier’s CEO, Jiri Marek, recently said, “We are continuing the massive expansion of our network in order to complement the existing service and provide passengers the broadest possible selection when planning trips and holidays. We plan to fly to more than sixty destinations in Europe, North America, and the Middle East this year. An exciting a dynamic period is ahead of us”.
