Air Serbia commences service to Tel Aviv

By adding Tel Aviv into its network of destinations, Air Serbia further enriched its offer, enabling passengers good connections between the Middle East and West Europe, United States of America and the Balkans.

On 6 April 2023, with flight JU812 at 1:30pm, Air Serbia re-established direct flights between Belgrade and Tel Aviv, after a hiatus of more than three years. The national airline will be operating flights to this city in Israel on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays, while from 8 May fourth weekly will be introduced on Mondays.

The first Air Serbia flight received an official welcome at the Ben Gurion Airport, located 20 kilometers from Tel Aviv.

“Tel Aviv is one of the most modern centres in the Middle East. By bringing this cosmopolitan city back into our network of destinations, we have opened the doors of Israel to everyone who wants to visit it. Only fifty kilometres away lies Jerusalem, a city whose history goes back to the fourth millennium BC, making it one of the oldest in the world. The average length of the Tel Aviv flight is two hours and fifty minutes and will be operated by Airbus A319 aircraft,” said Bojan Aranđelović, Head of Network Planning and Scheduling at Air Serbia.

“The White City”, which is what Tel Aviv is frequently called, is the second largest city in Israel. It is located on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea and it offers visitors a unique blend of art, culture, archaeology, entertainment and tourism. With its new elegant skyscrapers, it is as if it is keeping a watchful eye on the past, taking great care to preserve it.

By adding Tel Aviv into its network of destinations, Air Serbia further enriched its offer, enabling passengers good connections between the Middle East and West Europe, United States of America and the Balkans.

Also, as from today, Air Serbia’s flight JU808 at 12:30am marked the launch of scheduled Ankara service. Direct flights between the Serbian and Turkish capital will be operated four times a week, every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, by Airbus A319 aircraft.

The Serbian national airline’s inaugural flight between Belgrade and Ankara was welcomed at Ankara Esenboga airport, located 28 kilometres northeast of the city centre. It is the third biggest airport in Turkey, with an annual capacity of over 15 million passengers.

“The introduction of direct flights between the two capitals will enhance the already great economic, social and cultural cooperation of Serbia and Turkey, and further improve the mobility of people and cargo. In a week, on 15 April to be specific, in addition to Istanbul and Ankara, Air Serbia will also start operating flights to Izmir, while in the coming summer season, we will be offering charter flights to Antalya, Alanya, Bodrum and Dalaman”, stated Boško Rupić, General Manager Commercial and Strategy, Air Serbia.
