Air Serbia (what was known as JAT until a few years ago) is to make a little splash with a return to New York.
Plans are afoot to use a single Airbus A330-200 aircraft between the two routes as part of the planned expansion.
Air Serbia aim to operate a service five times a week between Belgrade and New York.
The service will be provisioned as a two class service (Business Class and Economy Class).
The last time direct services existed between Belgrade and New York was in 1992.
No doubt – there will be risks operating a single aircraft on a route (lets just look at Norwegian Air Shuttle who had enormous problems when they launched long haul services with limited aircraft availbile – who in the end had to hire in aircraft to lift its passengers), but for Air Serbia – it’s an intresting start.
How it chooses to expand from here will be the interesting thing to watch.
