Serbia’s national carrier Air Serbia, formerly JAT, landed at Zagreb’s international airport just after 9:00am on Friday after taking off from the Serbian capital Belgrade – the first time it has done that since August 1991. The first officer on the inaugural flight was Biljana Savić, the airline’s first female pilot.
Air Serbia will operate two daily flights between Belgrade and Zagreb. Flights will leave Belgrade at 7:35 and 18:20, and from Zagreb at 10:05 and 20:40. JAT’s predecessor Aeroput introduced the first flight between the cities back in 1928, with JAT flying between Belgrade and Zagreb from April 1947 to 1991.
