Air Serbia (former Jat Airways) launched a three-times-per-week service from Belgrade to Tirana, the capital and largest city of Albania. The service celebrates the resumption of flights between these two cities, following the last flight in 2009.
Air Serbia’s Chief Executive Officer, Dane Kondić, said: „The re-introduction of services to Tirana benefits the more than two million Albanian diaspora in Europe with increased travel options and connectivity over our Belgrade hub to their homeland. The route will also further contribute to the growth of Albania’s inbound tourism.“
Air Serbia’s recently elected Chairman of the Board, Siniša Mali, said: „The new service reinforces the significant progress Air Serbia is making with its operation and network expansion. In less than a year, our national airline has managed to re-connect the region and position itself as the leading carrier in the Balkans.“
The Belgrade-Tirana service offers excellent two-way connectivity through Air Serbia’s Belgrade hub at Nikola Tesla Airport to 17 business and leisure destinations across Europe, the Balkans and the Mediterranean region, including Moscow, Stockholm, Amsterdam, Brussels, Budapest, Paris, Copenhagen, Düsseldorf, Rome, Prague, Stuttgart, Podgorica, Tivat, Berlin, Warsaw, Vienna and Zurich.
The service into Air Serbia’s Belgrade hub at Nikola Tesla Airport has also been designed to maximise connections to destinations in the Middle East, Asia, Africa and Australia, with the support of network partner, Etihad Airways.
The Belgrade-Tirana flights are operated by an ATR72 aircraft. In line with the Air Serbia brand, the airline’s modern aircraft offer an unparalleled onboard service proposition, including appetising menu options and a complimentary bar service.
