Air Serbia’s quest for wider international routes and partnerships simply will not end, and on Friday, Feb. 24, the national airline announced that it had renewed cooperation with Air China, with Air China putting its marketing code on Air Serbia flights between Belgrade and Vienna, while the Serbian airline placed its marketing code on the flights between Vienna and Beijing.
“With the commencement of direct flights to Tianjin, Air Serbia returned to China after more than two decades, said Ivana Miklja Mučalov, manager International Affairs & Alliances, Air Serbia. “We have already further enhanced our presence in this market, by renewing and expanding the commercial cooperation with Air China.”
The airline also added that the partnership was expanded with the addition of the Air China marketing code to Air Serbia’s flights between Belgrade and Tianjin, which commenced last year in December.
Passengers will now be able to combine Air Serbia’s flights to Tianjin with Air China’s flights from Tianjin to Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Xi’an, thanks to the interline agreement between the two national airlines.
Cooperation first began between the two airlines in 2015. Also, as of 9 December 2022, the Serbian national airline has been operating flights to Tianjin
On this note, average flight duration is 10 hours for flights from Belgrade to Tianjin, and 12 hours for flights from Tianjin to Belgrade.
