Eurowings launches new service in Belgrade
The low-cost carrier Eurowings is preparing to launch flights from Düsseldorf to Belgrade, marking its second route to the Serbian capital. Flights are scheduled to begin at the start of the 2022/2023 winter season on October 30 next year. Operations will be maintained four times a week. Tickets are now on sale on the airline’s website. The new route will complement the carrier’s existing service from Stuttgart to Belgrade, launched this summer, which is temporarily suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic. The carrier will operate flights between the two cities on December 24, January 2 and January 9, before resuming regular road operations on March 4 next year.
The Lufthansa subsidiary returned to the Serbian market in July after two years with its service from Stuttgart. Initially, the flights were due to launch in July 2020, but were delayed for a year due to Covid-19. As was the case with Stuttgart, Eurowings will also be in direct competition with Air Serbia on its new Düsseldorf service, which the Serbian carrier currently operates three times a week. Before the pandemic, during the winter months, flights were operated six times a week. From its base in Düsseldorf, Eurowings also serves several other cities in the former Yugoslavia year-round, including Pristina, Split and Zagreb, as well as seasonal flights to Dubrovnik, Rijeka and Zadar.
