Air Serbia Names Airbus A330 Aircraft After Serbian Scientist and Inventor Nikola Tesla

Air Serbia has named the 254-seat Airbus A330 aircraft which will fly between Belgrade and New York after Serbian scientist and inventor Nikola Tesla.

 Nikola Tesla (1856 1943) is celebrated as one of the greatest minds of the 20th century, and is credited with developing many inventions that have shaped modern society, including the alternating-current electricity system, radio technology, x-rays and early models of electric motors.

 There is no one better to name our A330 aircraft after than Nikola Tesla, one of the most admired and influential Serbians in history, said Dane Kondić, Chief Executive Officer of Air Serbia. Billions of people around the world use his inventions daily and he had a close connection to New York, where he spent most of his life. Its an honour to fly back to the city with his name proudly emblazoned on our A330.

Air Serbia will operate the Belgrade - New York route with five flights per week.

Sinia Mali, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Air Serbia and Mayor of Belgrade, said, This new air link will supercharge relations between Serbia and the United States, and as such, it is fitting that our A330 has been named after Nikola Tesla, the man who was responsible for so much progress in the 20th century.
