Constantine the Great Airport in Nis will introduce flights to Egypt as of next summer.
This will be the first regular air service between the southern Serbian city and the African continent. Furthermore, a Cairo-Belgrade is expected to be launched as well.
The Egyptian Ambassador to Serbia, Amr Aljowaily said that during his first ever visit to Serbia in October this year, the governor of the Red Sea region in Egypt talked with the top officials of the Nis Airport about the establishment of Nis-Egypt flights.

The Nis Airport had the record number passengers this year (355,000) and, although the numbers have dropped in the past two months compared to 2017, after several flight services were discontinued, the director general of the airport, Dusan Knezevic, said last week that negotiations with airliners about the launch of new air services were in progress.
Ambassador Aljowaily also pointed out that progress had been made regarding the planned launch of regular flights between Cairo and Belgrade.
Air Serbia was planning on introducing services to Cairo in 2014 but cancelled such plans due to deteriorating security in the country at the time. Egypt Air’s subsidiary, Air Cairo, maintains scheduled year-round flights between Hurghada and Belgrade. This summer, it was joined by AlMasria Universal Airlines and Air Serbia on the route.
