BELGRADE (Serbia), December 5 (SeeNews) – Flag carrier Air Serbia started the sale of tickets for flights linking the Morava Airport in Kraljevo to Vienna, it said.

The first flight on the route will take place on December 17 and tickets are sold via agencies and the Air Serbia Contact Centre, the flag carrier said in a statement on Wednesday.

"Morava Airport will become our third home airport in Serbia, and it will be intended primarily for passengers from Western Serbia and the Sumadija region. After the launch of the Vienna flights, passengers can also expect the introduction of regular flights to Greece. All of those who wish to travel from the Morava Airport can expect traditionally good service at affordable prices," Duncan Naysmith, CEO of Air Serbia, said.

Last month, the company signed an agreement with the Serbian government to launch subsidised flights from Morava Airport to Vienna and Thessaloniki. 

The Vienna flights will be available throughout the whole year, two times per week in the winter and three times per week in summer, while the Thessaloniki flights will be seasonal with two flights per week in summer.

Morava airport opened for international civil aviation operations in July. The government has invested 8.5 million euro ($9.4 million) in the overhaul of the Morava military airport, enabling the handling of flights of ATR-72 and Boeing 737 aircraft.
