Finally, Air Serbia will not fly to Nice during the high summer season. The company has given up on connecting the capital of the Riviera to Belgrade due to lack of traffic.

Initially scheduled for April and then postponed in May, the route has simply been removed from the booking engines of the Serbian carrier. In fact, the decision not to operate the Nice-Belgrade route was taken after the opening of two weekly flights by the low-cost carrier Wizz Air at the beginning of April on the same route.

On the other hand, Air Serbia confirms that it will start operating flights between Lyon and Belgrade in June. The carrier will offer two weekly flights by Airbus A319 from June 2. It also confirms its strong presence on Paris CDG with two daily frequencies to Belgrade. Here too, Air Serbia is in competition with Wizz Air. But it is less competition, as the low-cost carrier only serves Beauvais. From Paris, the carrier offers four weekly flights since this spring to Niš, the third largest city in Serbia located in the southeast.

Note that this summer, Air Serbia continues to densify its network. The airline is launching new routes from Belgrade to Bologna and Trieste in Italy, Hanover and Nuremberg in Germany and Salzburg in Austria.

The carrier continues to operate routes to Moscow, Serbia remaining by tradition the faithful ally of Russia, against all odds … Air Serbia flies to the Russian capital at a rate of at least two daily flights with connections to Paris depending on the day. However, the fares are more than dissuasive. A round trip is now around 1000 euros – without including luggage!
