Air Serbia has resumed service to Thessaloniki and will restart flights to Prague and Sofia from June 4, 2021. For summer, the carrier will offer seven weekly flights to Thessaloniki, two weekly flights to Prague and three weekly flights to Sofia.
On Saturday (May 22, 2021), Air Serbia announced the resumption of service to Thessaloniki, with flights to Prague and Sofia restarting on June 4, 2021. For summer 2021, the carrier will serve Thessaloniki seven times weekly with twice-daily service on Mondays and Fridays and one flight on Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Service to Prague will be offered twice weekly on Mondays and Fridays, while flights to Sofia will be operated three times per week with two flights on Mondays and one flight on Fridays.
In Saturday’s announcement, Air Serbia’s General Manager – Commercial and Strategy, Jiri Marek, said,
“Having in mind the gradual relaxing of travel restrictions, as well as the approaching peak of the season, we have decided to re-establish flights to certain popular destinations in our network. We are glad that our passengers will have the opportunity to spend their summer vacation in the Thessaloniki region, and we are doing our best to make their trip easier. Direct flights to the capitals of the Czech Republic and Bulgaria are also very important for us, both for economic and touristic reasons.”
In a previous announcement last Friday (May 21, 2021), Air Serbia announced an expansion of their codeshare partnership with Aeroflot. Under the agreement, both carriers will add their flight marketing codes on flights between Belgrade and Moscow. Currently, Air Serbia operates seven weekly flights between the Serbian and Russian capitals, while Aeroflot offers six flights per week. Aeroflot will also place their code on Air Serbia’s flights between Belgrade and St. Petersburg, which will operate twice weekly from June 8, 2021.
Commenting on the codeshare partnership expansion, Air Serbia’s Jiri Marek, said,
“Russia is a very important market, both for Serbia and the wider region. In addition to restoring traffic to Krasnodar and Saint Petersburg, and introducing a new destination, Rostov-on-Don, our goal is to provide our passengers with as wide a choice and as much flexibility as possible when planning their trips. This is why we are constantly working on improving our services, adding new connectivity options and upgrading cooperation with our partners. It is our great pleasure to welcome the passengers of our partner, Aeroflot, on the flights in Air Serbia's network.”
Serbia’s national flag carrier also has marketing codes on Aeroflot’s routes between Moscow and St. Petersburg, Krasnodar, Sochi, Volgograd, Kazan, Samara, Novosibirsk, Yekaterinburg, Omsk and Istanbul, while Aeroflot has their code on Air Serbia’s flights between Belgrade and Podgorica, Tivat, Sarajevo, Tirana Skopje, Banjaluka and Istanbul.
