Serbian national airline Air Serbia launched its new Ankara route April 7, with the airline now featuring direct flights between Belgrade and the Turkish capital four times a week.
“The introduction of direct flights between the two capitals will enhance the already great economic, social and cultural cooperation of Serbia and Turkey, and further improve the mobility of people and cargo,” stated Boško Rupić, general manager Commercial and Strategy, Air Serbia.
“In a week, on 15 April to be specific, in addition to Istanbul and Ankara, Air Serbia will also start operating flights to Izmir, while in the coming summer season, we will be offering charter flights to Antalya, Alanya, Bodrum and Dalaman,” he added.
