Air Serbia expands Italian routes for summer 2023; gov says new terminal to also come on line

Air Serbia is continuing aggressive expansion to match what is foreseen to be a positive tourist season next summer with four new routes to Italy to be added in 2023.

Commenting on new direct flights between Belgrade and Catania, Naples, Florence  and Palermo, Bosko Rupic, general manager for commercial and strategy, Air Serbia, noted the Italian focus for the next summer season.

“We are continuing the trend of introducing new destinations in the summer season,” Rupic said. “Our presence in Italy will be expanded with four attractive destinations that will offer our travellers the opportunity to enjoy different types of vacations—from the unreal Dolomites and Alps in the north, through unique landscapes in Tuscany to the most beautiful beaches in the world in Sicily.

“This is just the beginning, you can expect more good news from Air Serbia in the coming days,” he added.

The timing could hardly be better with a new terminal scheduled to open at Belgrade’s Nikola Tesla Airport also next summer, according to Minister of Constructions and Transport Goran Vesic, as cited by

“By the end of this year, the Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport will have six million passengers, which is a better result than the one from 2019, which was a record-setting year,”  Vesic was reported as stating on the ministry website.

Capacity of the renovated airport will thus increase to 15 million passengers, triple what it was before the signing of the concession agreement with Vinci, when there were slightly over five million passengers. The company behind the new terminal construction, Vinci Airports, is lasted to implement an investment of EUR 732 mln in the airport terminal/renovation.
