An Airbus A330 airliner with the Air Serbia logo on its tail, which will be used to operate a non-stop service from Belgrade to New York starting from June 23, was welcomed with the traditional water cannon salute at the Belgrade Nikola Tesla airport on Wednesday.

It will be the first non-stop service between a Balkan country and the United States in 24 years.

The wide-body airliner arrived from Abu Dhabi, carrying Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Air Serbia and Belgrade Mayor Sinisa Mali and Air Serbia CEO Dane Kondic, among others.

The Serbian carrier will be the only company in the neighbourhood running such a service.

By leasing the A330, Air Serbia marked the next step in its development as a leading airline in the region.

The service to New York will be operated five days a week.

Mali: We have already sold 11,000 tickets to New York

We have already sold over 11,000 tickets for the Belgrade-New York flights that will be operated on a wide-body Airbus A330 aircraft that touched down on the Belgrade airport on Wednesday, said Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Air Serbia, and the national carrier’s CEO Dane Kondic added that the service would start bringing profit as early as two years from now.

Mali, who is also the mayor of Belgrade, said that Serbia now had the biggest airliner in the region, bigger than any in 11 neighboring countries.

“Not only is the A330 airliner the biggest plane is Air Serbia’s fleet but it is also the biggest in the region. No other airline in the region has a bigger aircraft and that is why it is a picture of a better, more beautiful and more successful Serbia and a symbol of our country’s economic recovery and prosperity,” Mali said.

He stressed that the Belgrade – New York service, kicking off on June 23, would help improve business cooperation between Serbia and the United States, and called on businessmen to take advantage of A330 being able to carry 15 tons of cargo.
