Air Serbia launches Gothenburg-Niš

Travellers in western Sweden will be able to fly to Serbia’s third largest city on two weekly departures.

Air Serbia will start operations again at Göteborg Landvetter after a break of seven years, the airport operator Swedavia reports.

Beginning July 17, travellers in western Sweden will be able to fly to the Serbian city of Niš, on a direct route that will be served by two weekly departures.

Niš is the third largest city in the country, located in eastern Serbia on the River Nišava – in the heart of the Balkans and at the crossroads of historic European trade routes connecting Asia and western Europe.

“It is gratifying that Air Serbia is now returning to Göteborg Landvetter,” declared the Swedish airport’s director, Anna Strömwall.

“We see steady growth in traffic to eastern Europe and can offer a wider selection of exciting new weekend destinations. The route will also make travel easier for passengers with Serbian roots who can conveniently visit friends and family.”

To be launched on July 17, the route will use an Airbus A319. Belgrade-based Air Serbia started operations in 2013 and is the successor to the carriers Aeroput (1927), JAT Yugoslav Airlines (1947) and Jat Airways (2003).

Nine more routes
The Serbian national airline is launching nine other routes starting from June, year-round to seven destinations – Kiev, Madrid, Barcelona, Rijeka, Krasnodar, Helsinki and Cairo – as well as two seasonal flights to Nice and Zadar.

In addition, it says it will add more depth to its network with additional frequencies to its busiest existing routes, including Zurich, Paris and Dubrovnik.
