Another low-cost air carrier will be flying to and from Konstantin Veliki Airport in Nis. As of June, the Switzerland-based Germania will be flying directly between Nis and Zurich twice a week – on Mondays and Fridays.
Ilija Todoric from Intertravel GSA, which represents the Swiss airliner in Serbia, says that the first flight is planned for 23rd June, and the passengers will be flying in Airbus A319 with 150 seats.
“The one-way ticket, at the price of 69 Swiss francs, can already be purchased. The ticket includes all the fees and service costs, and up to 20kg of free luggage. This is a very fast, comfortable and affordable way for our diaspora to travel to Serbia, and we also expect to draw in more tourists from Switzerland with the help of the Serbian Tourist Board and the local tourist board in Nis”, Todoric explains.
The Serbian Civil Aviation Directorate says that four low-cost air carriers – WizzAir, Ryanair, Norwegian Air Shuttle and Easyjet Switzerland – have been given a permission to fly to and from Serbia, and that, come spring, they expect even more low cost airlines to apply for the permission.
“Wizzair was granted a permission to fly from Belgrade to London, Paris, Basel, Eindhoven, Dortmund, Karlsruhe, Gothenburg, Munich Memmingen, Malme and Larnaca”, the Directorate says. “From Nis Airport, the company flies to Basel, Malme, Eindhoven and Dortmund. Ryanair flies to Berlin, Bratislava, Bergamo and Dusseldorf, Norwegian Air Shuttle for Oslo and Stockholm, while Easyjet Switzerland flies to Geneva”, the Directorate says.
