BELGRADE (Serbia), February 22 (SeeNews) - Flag carrier Air Serbia has said it plans to launch regular flights from Belgrade to Italy's Venice on June 1. 

Air Serbia will operate the flight on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday with an ATR 72-series aircraft, the company said in a statement on Tuesday. 

“Our four-weekly service will provide business and leisure travellers with multiple travel options to the Serbian capital, as well quick connections over Belgrade to Southeast Europe and the Middle East," Air Serbia CEO Dane Kondic said in the statement.

More than 55% of the Serbian diaspora in Italy, estimated at up to 70,000 people, lives in the catchment area of Venice Marco Polo Airport, and will benefit from this new air link to Serbia, Kondic added.

''We have established a solid presence in the Italian market and will work with our tourism and trade partners, including Alitalia and Etihad Airways, to make the new service a success,” he said.

In Italy, Air Serbia already operates flights to Rome and Milan.
