Amsterdam - Belgrade with KLM, from May 13, 2021
KLM is launching daily flights from Amsterdam to Belgrade this summer, marking a return to the Serbian capital after more than three decades. KLM replaces Transavia on this route and concludes a code share agreement with Air Serbia from Belgrade to Amsterdam.
The Dutch airline will initially launch a service that will operate for a period of three weeks, starting on Thursday 13 May. The flights will be operated on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays with Embraer aircraft.. Then, starting June 14, the frequency will increase to one daily flight.

When KLM launches the route from Amsterdam to Belgrade, it will replace Transavia, KLM's low-cost subsidiary that has been operating flights to Belgrade since April 2017. Transavia operates six weekly flights to Belgrade, using Boeing 767 aircraft, so KLM's arrival will be a reduction in capacity. Transavia had a code share agreement with KLM, so KLM could use Transavia flights to power its global network in Amsterdam Schipol.
The booking system indicates that KLM no longer sells flights on Air Serbia flights from Belgrade to Amsterdam, even though Air Serbia will sell tickets on KLM flights. In doing so, Air Serbia is still able to supply Belgrade's regional network. For this reason and because KLM already flies daily, Air Serbia will operate only 5 weekly flights to Amsterdam this summer, compared to 10 weekly flights operating in 2019.
