BELGRADE (Serbia), January 14 (SeeNews) - Etihad Airways, an equity partner of the Serbian government in flag carrier Air Serbia, is considering a resumption of flights on the Abu Dhabi - Belgrade route, the EX-YU Aviation News information portal reported.

"We continually review the forward development of the network, and as part of this process will be regularly evaluating the potential to reinstate a connection between Abu Dhabi and Belgrade," EX-YU Aviation News quoted the United Arab Emirates-based carrier as saying in a statement on Thursday.

Etihad halted the service in October 2020, citing a drop in demand prompted by the coronavirus pandemic.

Etihad Airways signed a deal to acquire a 49% stake in JAT Airways, a company wholly owned by the Serbian government and later renamed to Air Serbia, in 2013.

There are currently three weekly flights between Serbia's capital and Abu Dhabi, all operated by Hungarian low-cost carrier Wizz Air.
