Wizz Air has announced its intention to resume flights to Belgrade from Friday, May 1, from London’s Luton airport, reports the Exyuaviation website.
There will be three flights per week during the first week, increasing to four weekly from May 11. Tickets are already on sale. Initially, flights between Luton and Nikola Tesla Airport were scheduled to commence on May 15.
“As we restart selected Luton flights to provide an essential service to passengers who need to travel, our primary concern is the health, safety and well-being of our customers and crew. The protective measures that we are implementing will ensure the best sanitary conditions possible”, Wizz Air UK managing director, Owain Jones, said.

He added, “Cabin crew will have to wear masks and gloves on flights and distribute sanitising wipes to passengers. Aircraft will also be disinfected overnight. Customers will be asked to check in and pay extra for baggage online to help reduce human interaction at the airport”.
Flights from Belgrade should resume on June 1.
Wizz Air’s CEO, Jozsef Varadi, is forecasting a phased return to flying starting in May. “We have four aircraft flying now. We are flying at only 3% of capacity. On May 1, we’ll have about 10% of the fleet flying. I think we’ll start seeing some easing during the course of May or into June, I don’t know. What we do know that the entire situation is becoming unsustainable. Maybe at the end of May or sometime in June, we’ll be at 30%”, he said.
