Serbian flag carrier JAT Airways has introduced flights to Croatia for the first time in 17 years.
The airline will offer flights to Pula from Belgrade until August 21st this year, marking the return of a service which was discontinued in 1991.
Flights from Belgrade to Pula will operate twice a week on Thursdays and Sundays, with the airline keen to offer cheap flights by using an ATR 72 aircraft on the route.
Ticket sales for the newly-restored route opened on June 4th and demand has proved strong so far. Some 1,300 seats have been booked for the new flight over the past few weeks.
JAT says that if interest in the new flight continues, it will consider adding flights to Croatia on a more permanent basis and look at the possibility of adding the route to its winter schedule.
Meanwhile, the airline added summer flights to Oslo from Belgrade last month. Services will run on Mondays and Fridays until September 26th.
