Air Serbia Takes Delivery of First Wide-Body Aircraft

Air Serbia has taken delivery of its first wide-body aircraft.

The Airbus A330 will be used on Air Serbias Belgrade-New York route, which launches on 23 June 2016, reconnecting Serbia and the United States with direct air service for the first time in 24 years.

After landing at Nikola Tesla Airport in Belgrade, the aircraft was greeted by a traditional water cannon salute and a delegation of airline representatives.

The aircraft, which was captained by Davor Mieljić, Chief Operations Officer of Air Serbia, will now be registered with the Serbian Civil Aviation Directorate before returning to Abu Dhabi for the final outfitting of its interior cabins.

This is a massive milestone for Air Serbia and for our nation. Watching our newly-painted Airbus A330 land at its new home in Belgrade for the very first time was a proud moment for us all, showing that Air Serbia is continuing to invest in the future of the airline and Serbia itself, said Sinia Mali, Chairman of Air Serbia and the Mayor of Belgrade. Our first widebody aircraft and the bigger cousin of our A319 and A320 jets, the A330 is a sound investment choice that will reconnect Serbia and the United States in a few short weeks, opening new channels of tourism and trade for the economy.

Configured with 18 seats in Business Class and 236 in Economy Class, the Airbus A330 will be operated on Air Serbia's new five flights per week service between Belgrade and New York, set to commence on 23 June 2016.

Product and service highlights of the A330 aircraft include an inflight entertainment system in every seat featuring a selection of films, movies and other entertainment in Serbian and English, lie-flat seats in Business Class and redesigned menus, including a dine-on-demand service for Business Class passengers.
