A general aviation airport will be built in Jagodina. The airport’s location has already been determined, with the land for it already being re-purposed as building land.
The Serbian government still needs to adopt the official decision to transfer the property rights to the town of Jagodina. A number of foreign investors in Jagodina have supported the decision for the town to build an airport – the Town Council of Jagodina told Tanjug.
Foreign investments here have led to an accelerated economic and tourist development of Jagodina, in turn, has created the need to have a functional airport that would contribute to the further development of Jagodina and this area, as a modern economic, cultural, tourist and administrative center of the Pomoravlje District – the Town Council says in a press release.

The airport will be built on the Stiplje Road in the cadaster municipality Vinorac-Voljevce, in the current location of Letiliste, about six kilometres from the town’s centre. Letiliste has had the exploitation certificate since 2010. It has around 40,000 square metres of available space and is a suitable location for the future general aviation airport in Jagodina. The project entails construction of a head office building, a runway, a tower, and two fuel stations.
The airport will service planes carrying up to 80 passengers and “play an important role in the development of the economy and tourism of Jagodina, Pomoravlje and this part of Serbia between Belgrade and Nis”.
The construction of the airport will be on tomorrow’s agenda of the Town Assembly. Jagodina had an airport until 1951.
