The national airline of Serbia, Air Serbia, has been struggling lately, especially since Etihad Airways, one of Air Seribia’s partners, canceled its order for brand-new Airbus A320neos. However, Air Serbia hopes to recover with new routes and new aircraft. It will make adjustments independently of Etihad.

To start the expansion, Air Serbia will launch several new year-round destinations, which are as follows (frequencies have yet to be released):

Kiev, Ukraine

Madrid, Spain

Barcelona, Spain

Rijeka, Croatia

Krasnodar, Russia

Helsinki, Finland

Cairo, Egypt

In addition, the airline will also launch seasonal services to Nice, France and Zadar, Croatia, and increase frequencies to Paris, France; Zurich, Switzerland; and Dubrovnik, Croatia.

The routes will be timed to allow passengers to connect to small, underserved destinations in the Balkan region.

The only piece of the puzzle that seems to be missing for the airline is how the routes will be operated. Air Serbia’s fleet is operating at capacity, and the airline has no new aircraft on order to power expansion.
