Air Serbia and ITA Airways, the successor of Alitalia, have expanded their codeshare agreement by placing each other’s marketing codes on additional destinations, Air Serbia said on Tuesday.
The codeshare agreement allows ITA Airways to expand its network by adding its AZ flight code to the Serbian national airline’s direct scheduled flights from Rome and Milan’s biggest airport, Malpensa, to Belgrade. Also, ITA Airways’ passengers will be able to fly via Belgrade to 11 select international destinations operated by Air Serbia – Athens, Banjaluka, Bucharest, Ljubljana, Podgorica, Sarajevo, Sofia, Skopje, Thessaloniki, Tivat and Tirana.
Air Serbia will place its marketing code on the flights between the Italian capital Rome and Bologna, Florence, Naples, Reggio Calabria, Verona, Barcelona, Cairo, Malta, and Tel Aviv, the company said in a statement.
The Italian airline will, in turn, place its marketing code on the flight linking Belgrade and Venice, as well as on flights from Belgrade to Dubrovnik, Pula and Split, in Croatia, the statement read.
“We look forward to the expansion of our business relationship and further development of cooperation with ITA Airways, which has proven to be very successful so far. With the introduction of new codeshare flights, we will further contribute to the improvement and strengthening of cultural and economic ties between our countries, while providing our passengers a more attractive offer and quicker connections,” Bosko Rupic, Air Serbia’s general manager, commercial and strategy, said.
The two companies entered the codeshare agreement in late November.
