Air Serbia BEGtoJFK

Air Serbia has big summer plans!

The national airline of the Republic of Serbia is gearing up for the delivery of their first wide-body aircraft, an Airbus A330, featuring stylish new cabins. To top it off, Air Serbia will use the new aircraft to launch their first long-haul service to New York’s JFK International Airport on the 23 June 2016.

Air Serbia has released a tease of what customers can expect on the 2-class configured aircraft, and I’m impressed!

The A330 will feature both business and economy class cabins. The seat specifics have yet to be released but have a look at the fantastic cabin designs.  Air Serbia's New A330 Economy Cabin

The New York service has been assigned flight numbers JU500 and JU501, the same numbers used by Air Serbia’s predecessor Jat Airways when the carrier operated non-stop flights to the United States 24 years ago.

Operating five times a week, the flight will depart Belgrade at 07:30 on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, to arrive in JFK International Airport at 12:00. On Friday and Saturday, it will depart Belgrade at 12:55, to arrive in JFK at 17:25. The return service will take off at 14:40 on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, to land in Belgrade’s Nikola Tesla Airport at 05:30. On Friday and Saturday, it will depart JFK at 19:30 to arrive in Belgrade at 10:20.

Fly Guy became a huge fan of Air Serbia after taking two short hops around Europe with “the new wings of Europe”. I’m eager to take a detour back to Belgrade to try this flight out.
