Serbian national airline, Air Serbia will resume scheduled flights to June 15 instead of June 1, as originally announced, due to the European Commission’s recommendations regarding the extension of temporary restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic – Air Serbia said on Wednesday.
“As Air Serbia flies to many of the countries affected (with the coronavirus outbreak), the Serb flag carrier is compelled to postpone the start of its anticipated scheduled air services,” the company said in a statement.
Air Serbia will re-launch operations to London Heathrow, Frankfurt, Zurich and Vienna on May 18, as planned earlier, but with somewhat reduced frequencies than originally planned due to the recommendations of the EU Commission.

“Our fleet and our staff are ready to resume scheduled passenger services at any time. The start and scope of our services, however, depend not only on us but on the decisions and guidelines of national, foreign, and international bodies and civil aviation authorities and on the changes in the travel restrictions valid in the countries we serve, “Air Serbia’s CEO, Duncan Naysmith noted.
Air Serbia is also ready to prioritize regional flying and adjust to new opportunities and returning demand within the region, the company noted.
Air Serbia suspended its regular flights on March 20, shortly after the government declared a state of emergency over the coronavirus outbreak.
