As years go by, the number of passengers coming through the Belgrade Airport has been consistently increasing. Just this year’s third quarter saw 2,035,000 passengers, which is 34% more than the same period in the last year. This is why Wizz Air announced that it will be expanding its operations in Belgrade and it was joined by Air Serbia.
Wizz Air, the fastest growing airline in Europe and the world’s most environmentally
sustainable airline, announced that its Belgrade base will be enriched with an Airbus A321ceo. With its fourth airplane in Belgrade, Wizz Air will increase the number of flights and open five new routes to Lisbon, Berlin, Copenhagen, Milan and Zakynthos.
The Wizz Air base in Belgrade will have a total of four airplanes, thus providing the passengers from Serbia an opportunity to travel to 13 countries with 23 routes and an additional 5 routes in the country. In addition, an additional capacity will allow Wizz Air to increase the number of flights from its bases in Barcelona, Dortmund, Eindhoven, Beauvais airport in Paris and Fiumicino airport in Rome.
Although the flights are scheduled to begin in July, seats for new routes have gone on sale and can be booked via the company’s website or mobile app. The price of a one-way ticket to Berlin or Copenhagen ranges from EUR 34.99, to Lisbon from EUR 49.99, to Zakynthos from EUR 34.99 and Bergamo (near Milan) from EUR 24.99.
Serbia’s national airline – Air Serbia, also announced the introduction of new flights to Hamburg, Goteborg, Köln and Marseille sometime in May 2023. The flights will be operated by Airbus A31 airplanes and one-way tickets are on sale from EUR 49 in economy class for Köln, Hamburg and Goteborg, and from EUR 69 for Marseille.
In addition, since December this year, Air Serbia established a new flight to China or Tianjin, thus becoming one of the few airlines in Europe with a direct flight to this Asian country. By establishing a direct line to China, Air Serbia provided its passengers with the opportunity to travel from China via Belgrade to Amsterdam, Barcelona, Oslo, Paris, Stockholm, Frankfurt, Ljubljana, Prague, Venice, Valencia, Zagreb and other destinations in its growing network.
