The Serbian national airline began service to JFK in 2026 and the partnership with the New Terminal One reflects its growing commitment to the city of New York.

Air Serbia has become the latest international airline that has committed to operating out of New York’s world-class New Terminal One at John F. Kennedy International Airport scheduled to open its doors to customers in 2026. The New Terminal One is being constructed in partnership with the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey as part of the agency’s $19 billion redevelopment of JFK Airport.

Air Serbia now operates out of the current Terminal 1 at New York JFK, flying up to seven times a week between Belgrade and New York JFK.

“We are very happy and looking forward to the opening of the New Terminal One at New York John F. Kennedy International Airport. Partnership with The New Terminal One is a testament to the continuous improvement of our services and commitment to customer satisfaction. We are convinced that the cutting-edge technology, streamlined processes, and enhanced amenities of the New Terminal One will redefine the way of travel and conveniently make enjoyable journeys for our passengers,” said Jiri Marek, Air Serbia CEO.

We are excited to have Air Serbia join our growing portfolio of carriers that will operate at the New Terminal One, offering customers nonstop service between New York and the historic city of Belgrade,” said The New Terminal One President and CEO, Dr Gerrard P. Bushell. “As we advance towards our scheduled opening in 2026, our momentum to become JFK’s terminal of choice for global airlines is accelerating. We thank the team at Air Serbia for placing their trust in The New Terminal One and look forward to welcoming them on board.”

The New Terminal One has to date announced seven partner airlines: Air France, KLM, Etihad, Korean Air, LOT Polish Airlines, EVA Air and Air Serbia. More partner airlines will be announced in the coming months. The New Terminal One, with an ambition to be ranked among the top 5 Skytrax terminals globally, will offer state-of-the-art technology and a world-class retail and dining experience with a strong sense of place of New York.

The terminal’s first phase, comprising the headhouse and 14 gates, is scheduled to open in June 2026. The full opening of the terminal is scheduled for 2030. At full build, the terminal will offer 23 gates and 2.4 million square feet of space. The international-only terminal will be the largest at JFK when complete, occupying the footprint of the current Terminal 1 and the former Terminals 2 and 3.
