For this special occasion, the inaugural flight was operated by Air Serbia’s Airbus A319, which was greeted by a full water cannon salute at Banja Luka Airport.
The Banja Luka flights offer excellent connections through Air Serbia’s Belgrade hub at Nikola Tesla Airport to numerous key destinations across Europe, including Paris, Amsterdam, Prague, Rome, Milan, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Stuttgart, Dusseldorf, Berlin, Zurich, Brussels, and Moscow. In the near future, the European flights from Belgrade will be operated by an Airbus A319.
The schedule has also been structured to provide good inbound connection times for passengers from Australia to the Republika Srpska.
Air Serbia confirmed last month an order for 10 Airbus A320neos with a list price of US$1 billion, which will be delivered between 2018 and 2020, to replace the current fleet of eight A319s and two A320s, creating a modern, fuel-efficient fleet that will serve the airline’s aspiration to be the region’s leading carrier.
The airline serves 29 Euro-Mediterranean destinations and offers long-haul and international destinations in Asia, Australia and the Americas through its codeshare partners and shareholding equity partner, Etihad Airways.
