Air Serbia, naconalna aviokompanija Republike Srbije, objavila je danas da je potvrđen dolazak deset aviona tipa Airbus nove generacije A320neo u njenu flotu. Ova kupovina, po cenovniku, vredi milijardu američkih dolara.

Posao koji je postignut za potrebe kompanije Air Serbia, objavljen na Dubai Air Show-u, deo je aranžmana kojim strateški partner Etihad Airways upotpunjuje potrebe za flotom od ukupno 117 aviona tipa Airbus.

Avion A320neo zameniće osam letelica A319 i dva A320, koji su trenutno uzeti u najam kako bi se postepeno zamenila stara flota od deset aviona tipa Boeing B 737-300.

Očekuje se da novi A320neo budu isporučeni između 2018. i 2020. godine.

Saopštenje o kupovini aviona Airbus A320neo usledilo je neposredno po prvom inauguracionom letu vazduhoplova A319 u bojama Air Serbia od Beograda do Abu Dabija, koji je obavljen 26. oktobra. Ugovor po kome je Etihad Airways stekao 49 procenata u kompaniji Air Serbia i njome će rukovoditi u periodu od pet godina objavljen je 1. avgusta.

Prema rečima generalnog direktora Daneta Kondića, Air Serbia ima za cilj da postane aviokompanija svetske klase i zato se ubrzano krenulo i sa uvođenjem većeg broja savremenih vazduhoplova tipa Airbus A319 i A320 u flotu, kako bi se što pre poboljšali kvalitet putovanja i usluga za goste nacionalne aviokompanije.

Air Serbia to acquire A320s

Air Serbia will introduce two Airbus A320 aircraft to its fleet at the start of the 2014 summer season. The airline will acquire the two jets through a financial lease and they will join the carrier’s fleet of eight Airbus A319s and four ATR72 turboprops. The new aircraft will enter service on March 30, 2014 and will initially be deployed to Paris, Skopje and Podgorica. The arrival of the A320s will also mark the retirement of the entire Boeing 737-300 fleet which includes Europe’s first B737.

Meanwhile, Air Serbia’airserbias A319 fleet is taking shape with the first aircraft to be delivered on October 21. The most recent acquisition includes the lease of a former Kingfisher jet which has been stored in Istanbul since the airline’s demise. The A319s will be entered into the Serbian register as YU-APA and onwards (YU-APB, APC etc.). The Kingfisher aircraft, the third to be leased, is now being painted into the airline’s corporate livery in Dublin. Air Serbia’s first set of newly employed cabin crew members and in flight chefs will begin their formal training for the aircraft next week in Belgrade, while the forty Jat Airways pilots which have been undergoing training in Dusseldorf and Berlin are set to return to Serbia.

Starting October 28, Air Serbia will introduce its new frequent flyer program in cooperation with Etihad Guest Miles. Passengers will be able to earn Etihad Guest Miles when travelling with both Air Serbia and Etihad. “By integrating the frequent flyer program, Air Serbia passengers will be able to earn Etihad Guest miles points through the booking systems of both the national carrier of Serbia as well as the United Arab Emirates, meaning they will be able to earn and use their points worldwide”, Dane Kondić, Air Serbia’s CEO commented yesterday. Passengers using Jat’s current Extra Flight Club frequent flyer program will be able to redeem their points for travel until October 2014 and will be invited to join the new Guest Miles program. In addition, Etihad Holidays will soon take control over Jat Airways’ own leisure division “Air Lift”. Once a major tour operator in Serbia, Air Lift has gone into oblivion since its separation from Jat’s mainline business several years ago under the orders of the government.

In the week leading up to Air Serbia’s launch, the aircraft featuring the Air Serbia livery, its interior as well as crew uniforms will be revealed to the public. The newly refurbished sales offices, featuring the Air Serbia branding, will also be opened in Belgrade and throughout Serbia during that week. The airline’s hub, Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport, is also preparing for Air Serbia’s launch. Airport CEO Velimir Radosavljević says, “The airport is simultaneously carrying out several major investments in order to increase capacity and improve its services but also to fulfil the higher standards requested by Air Serbia”.

Air Serbia begins ticket sales

Air Serbia has begun selling tickets for its 2013/14 winter season after loading most of its scheduling changes in global distribution systems. The airline, which will inaugurate flights to Abu Dhabi, Banja Luka, Bucharest, Ljubljana and Prague this winter, has begun advertising the new services in the country’s three leading newspapers. In addition, radio, public billboard and Internet advertisements are soon to follow. However, the schedule is still being tweaked and old Jat Airways flights removed. Compared to its preliminary schedule published by EX-YU Aviation News two weeks ago, Air Serbia will move its Istanbul operations from Ataturk to Sabiha Gokcen Airport on a temporary basis. As EX-YU Aviation News learns, the last minute change occurred after the Serbian carrier was unable to secure new slot times at Istanbul’s main airport Attaturk. Other services will see a significant boost in frequencies compared to last winter season.
airserbia-promo
Air Serbia has launched a promotional ticket sale, offering flights to its new destinations at discounted prices until March 2014. Tickets at these prices can be purchased until the end of September. Furthermore, the airline’s website is also to be launched in the coming period at airserbia.com and air-serbia.com. All passengers who have purchased tickets on former Jat Airways flights this winter will be reissued with new ones in the next few days. Tickets can also be purchased for the summer of 2014 with further frequency increases taking place such as the introduction of a second daily flight to Sarajevo and daily flights to Abu Dhabi.

Meanwhile, a second Air Serbia A319 has received the new corporate livery and interior at Phoenix Goodyear Airport. The carrier’s CEO, Dane Kondić, says a total of six Airbus A319s will join Air Serbia by the end of the year with a further two joining by the start of the 2014 summer season. The airline will further expand its fleet in 2016 and is considering purchasing A320Nneos, B737 MAX and Bombardier CS300 series aircraft. Mr. Kondić confirmed earlier reports by EX-YU Aviation News that the carrier’s Airbus fleet will have the capacity to seat 128 passengers – eight in “luxurious” business class and 120 in economy.

In his first address to Jat Airways/Air Serbia employees as CEO, Mr. Kondić said among other things, “Today is the start of a rewarding yet challenging journey for Air Serbia. It will be rewarding because we will succeed in building the leading airline in the region. I have no doubt that we will impress everyone, including ourselves, when we stand back in twelve months to look at what we have created. More importantly, we will have worked as a team. We will have used all our skills and expertise to find solutions for all the challenges along the way. We are building a performance-based culture where people are accountable for their responsibilities and recognised for their achievements. It is challenging because we need to think and work differently in order to get different and better results for the organisation. And it is challenging because we will need to deal with, and exceed, very high expectations of our guests, and the community”. Air Serbia launches official operations on October 27.

It has been an honour and pleasure to lead such a group of professionals, excellent workers and even better people who have managed to save the Serbian national carrier despite all the wars, sanctions, bombing, poverty and bad political influences which have all deeply reflected on the airline. You should be proud that nothing could break your spirits and that every time the airline rose like the phoenix from the ashes”. Mr. Vukašinović wished Jat all the best in its next chapter.

Air Serbia’s fleet takes shape

Air Serbia’s fleet is starting to take shape after the first, former Volaris Airbus A319, was painted and overhauled by Aero Turbine Aviation Solutions at Phoenix Goodyear Airport. The new look has been greeted with positive reviews from the public with Serbian Deputy Prime Minister Aleksandar Vučić commenting that, “airserbiaThe aircraft looks great. I think you will see a completely new airline on October 27”. In addition to the already revealed livery design, the aircraft features a large red Air Serbia logo on the undercarriage. As EX-YU Aviation News exclusively learns, the aircraft has already received the Air Serbia interior and features eight seats in business class and a further 120 seats in economy. Unlike most European airlines, the business class section does not feature the same seats as in economy and offers a completely different product. The new cabins have been based around those of Etihad Airways and are set to give major European airlines a run for their money on their narrow body fleet.

Air Serbia’s first aircraft is thirteen years old. A further four have already been leased from Volaris, TACA International and TACA Peru. Air Serbia will present the aircraft to the Serbian and international press in Belgrade several days prior to the launch of the 2013/14 winter season. It is also set to put on a lavish show in Belgrade to launch the new look Serbian carrier in the week starting October 21. Read the full story

Hundreds leaving Jat

Hundreds of Jat Airways employees have applied to voluntarily leave the airline in return for a redundancy package. According to the Jat Airways employee union, some 350 people, or 27% of its workforce, are leaving the Serbian national airline, the biggest number of employees ever to apply for voluntary leave from the company. Employees have been offered 300 euros for every year they have spent working for Jat. The deal is beneficial for those who have little time left until retirement.

jatcrewRedundancy packages have been offered to Jat Airways employees several times over the past thirteen years in an attempt to cut down on its workforce. Earlier this year redundancy packages were also offered, with only a handful of employees applying. However, since Etihad Airways purchased a minority stake in Jat, more have been willing to leave the airline. According to the takeover agreement between Etihad and the Serbian government, the government will cover the cost of the redundancy payout.

In a strongly worded statement, the Jat Airways employee union said, “We are witnessing another group of our colleagues leaving the company. Like many others before them no one has remembered to farewell them, thank them for their contribution, wished them good luck, given them a present on behalf of the company, even just a symbolic key ring from the departing Jat or the oncoming Air Serbia. Corporate culture? No, it is corporate arrogance, shamelessness”. The union goes on to say, “We hope and wish that this new airline which we are being promised is run by new people who know what a company is and who are its employees, what is a profit and what is a loss and why in a successful company there are happy employees. Because one without the other just doesn’t work”. According to Jat’s 2012 financial report, the airline has 1.298 employees.
