Air Serbia will operate flights to Chicago in 2023



Air Serbia expands its offer in the United States with a new service between Belgrade (BEG) and Chicago O’ Hare (ORD) as of May 17, 2023. The carrier resumes operations to the windy city after 30 years.

This new service is possible thanks to the addition of a second Airbus A330-200 to the company’s intercontinental fleet: this new aircraft is registered YU-ARC and christened «Mihajlo Pupin», a Serbian physicist, physical chemist and philanthropist, and includes his image on its tail as a part of the livery. This aircraft has a configuration of 21 seats in Business Class and 236 seats in Economy, was previously owned by South African Airways and has been delivered in 2011.

According to data obtained by Aviacionline through Cirium, Air Serbia will have an offer of 4,883 weekly seats between Belgrade (BEG) and the United States for the 2023 summer season, a 60% increase in capacity over 2019 levels. The airline will offer non-stop services to New York (JFK) and Chicago (ORD).
