A total of 12 new regular flights to cities in Germany, Italy, Austria, Slovenia, Sweden, Hungary and Montenegro will be launched from Nis Airport, probably on July 1, Mayor of Nis Darko Bulatovic said on Friday.
As he said, at the session held a day before, the Government of Serbia made the decision on declaring these flights as “of public interest”. The Serbian government will set aside 5 million euro as financial assistance to launching the said flights.
In line with this decision, regular flights to Nuremberg, Rome, Frankfurt, Karlsruhe, Hanover, Friedrichshafen, Salzburg, Budapest, Gothenburg, Bologna, Ljubljana and Tivat will be established.
At an unscheduled press conference, Bulatovic explained that, except for the Nis-Tivat line, all other flights will be carried out twice a week throughout the year, until 2023, whereas the Nis-Tivat line will be available three times a week in the May-October period.
Bulatovic also said that the Local Economic Development Office prepared a feasibility study for the lines which are not considered very commercial, but are important from the aspects of the development of the City of Nis and Southeast Serbia, the economic cooperation of that region and regions abroad, the tourism, but also for Serbian citizens living abroad. The Mayor’s Office then forwarded to study to the government and the competent ministry, proposing lines that meet the requirements outlined in the government’s decision, Bulatovic added.
