For the time being, Air Serbia is the only airline in the region to operate flights to New York.

Introducing direct flights to New York demonstrates Serbia’s commitment to opening up to the world, Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic said at a ceremony.

U.S. Ambassador Kyle Scott congratulated Serbia on the strategic decision to introduce the flights, expressing confidence that it is good for Serbia and the US, bilateral relations and tourism.

“This is a small step for a Serb, but a giant step for Serbia,” said Air Serbia CEO Dane Kondic.
