Air Serbia Reviews
Air Serbia actually traces its roots from its establishment in 1927 as Aeroput which was replaced by Jugoslovenski Aerotransport (JAT) in 1948, which was then renamed to Jat Airways in 2003. However, record financial losses inspired the airline to form a strategic partnership with Etihad Airways with national Serbian airline Air Serbia holding 51% of the stakes and Etihad Airways 49% with five-year management rights. In 2013, Jat Airways became known as Air Serbia, which is Serbia’s flag carrier.
Our Air Serbia reviews look at the features and services of Serbia’s most prominent national symbol in aviation.
Origins of the Flag Carrier
In 2013, the flag carrier and largest airline of Serbia had been renamed from Jat Airways to Air Serbia, starting its operations under its new name on October 26, 2013 with an inaugural flight from Belgrade to Abu Dhabi. The return flight from Abu Dhabi to Belgrade was actually Air Serbia’s first revenue service.
As of 2015 Air Serbia reviews, the airline has recorded 2,450 employees across their group. With their company slogan, “The New Wings of Europe,” Air Serbia has a fleet size of 21 flying to 44 destinations with a company logo composed of a stylised double-headed eagle inspired by Serbia’s coat of arms and based on the work of graphic designer Tamara Maksimović.
The current CEO of Air Serbia, Dane Kondić, has more than 25 years of experience within the aviation industry who had started his career with Qantas, having then held various leadership positions with several companies mostly based in Asia where he had been responsible for management. His skills enabled Air Serbia to turn around the 2013 losses to $3 million of profits in 2014.
