The first flight of the Serbian national airline under the name Air Serbia and with a new visual identity took place on 26 October 2013. During 10 years of operation, the company grew, focusing all its efforts on improving services and development of employees, fleet, and its network of destinations.
Employees are the most important resource of Air Serbia. They set high goals and work hard to attain them despite many challenges, achieving excellent results. The Serbian national airline fosters gender equality, as evidenced by the fact that half of its employees are women. One of the memorable events in Air Serbia’s history was the flight from Belgrade, in May 2017, made by an all-female crew.
The fleet of the Serbian national airline has been completely renewed over the past decade. Today it consists of Airbus A330-200 wide-body aircraft, narrow-body aircraft from the Airbus A320 family, and ATR 72-600 turboprop aircraft for regional flights. Continuous work is being done on the further expansion and improvement of the fleet.
Air Serbia’s network of destinations continues to grow year after year. Today, the company flies to more than 80 scheduled and charter destinations in Europe, the Mediterranean, North America, Asia, and Africa.
In June 2016, after a break of a quarter of a century, direct flights between Belgrade and New York were re-established, with Air Serbia becoming the only airline in the wider Balkan region operating direct flights to the United States of America.
From 9 December 2022, the Serbian national airline once again flies to the People’s Republic of China, i.e. between Belgrade and Tianjin, and has declared its firm intention to expand its operation to include other important Chinese cities.
Chicago, the third long-haul route of the Serbian national airline and the second in North America, was established on 17 May 2023, after a hiatus of more than 30 years. From the very beginning, it proved to be successful and useful for travellers, significantly contributing to better business, tourism, and all other connections between Serbia and the United States.
During the coronavirus pandemic, Air Serbia made all its resources available to the state and the people of Serbia. During the state of emergency, in cooperation with state bodies and organizations, numerous special flights were operated transporting more than 10,000 people stranded outside their home countries due to the pandemic. The Serbian national airline also made dozens of cargo flights that delivered hundreds of tons of medical equipment and materials to our country.
With over 1,400 employees, the youngest fleet in the region, a growing network of destinations, and a clearly defined sustainable development strategy, Air Serbia opens a new decade of business, ready to adapt to any change in the market, to operate profitably and constantly improve its service in the interests of passengers.
