On Thursday (November 17, 2022), Air Serbia announced the launch of new service between Belgrade and Chicago O’Hare international Airport for the first time in over 30 years. Starting May 17, 2023, the carrier will offer twice weekly service on the route on Wednesdays and Saturdays through June 11th, and will add a third weekly flight on Mondays from June 12, 2023. The approximately 11 hour flight will be operated with an Airbus A330, with return fares from €649, including taxes. Customers inbound to Chicago will enjoy convenient onward connections via Air Serbia’s interline partners American Airlines and JetBlue. Likewise, customers traveling to Belgrade will enjoy excellent onward connections across Air Serbia’s network.
In Thursday’s announcement, Air Serbia’s Vice President – Americas, George Petković, said,
“After more than three decades, the JU 506/507 flight will mark the return of the national airline to Chicago. This is an extremely important city and we are certain that direct flights between Belgrade and Chicago will mean a lot not just to the Serbian diaspora, but also to the wider Balkans region. By introducing flights between those two cities, the region will be better connected to Chicago, and passengers will have more choices. With the good connections that Air Serbia offers we expect great interest for these direct flights, for those who want to continue their travel to other destinations.”

The carrier offers service from Belgrade, Niš and Kraljevo to 60 destinations in Europe, the Middle East, North America and Africa with both passenger and cargo flights.
