Air Serbia will have a fleet of 10 Airbus A319 aircraft
Etihad Airways bought 49% from Jat Airways. As a result of this transaction, Jat Airways will reboot in Air Serbia. The strategic partnership includes the acquisition of new aircraft for Serbia's new airline, but also a new operational network.
As we announced from August 1, Air Serbia will operate a fleet of 10 Airbus A319 aircraft. The aircraft are rented and are between 2 and 5 years old. The first units will be received in September, and from October will enter into the operational program. The 10 A319 will replace the current ones B737-300.
But the plans for the future are great. In the next 24-36 Monday, it will be decided whether Air Serbia will order 10 A320neo or 737 MAX units.
And the operational network will grow from 33 to 45 destinations, including through codeshare agreements with Etihad Airways and Air Berlin. In addition to flights to Abu Dhabi, Air Serbia will open routes to Banja Luka, Beirut, Bucharest, Budapest, Cairo, Kiev, Ljubljana, Prague, Sofia, Varna and Warsaw.
