Government to publish agreement with Etihad

BELGRADE -- The government has received the approval of Etihad to publish the deal on strategic partnership with Air Serbia, says an advisor to Deputy PM Aleksandar Vučić.

The agreement will be made public soon, Siniša Mali said on Wednesday.

Mali said at the presentation of the business results of Air Serbia that some formalities are to be done before the agreement is published on the website of the Serbian government.

Air Serbia Director General Dane Kondić said that in less than five months the Serbian air carrier, according to a study by Oxford Economics, made an impressive success, adding that during this year it will bring over USD 700 million to the Serbian economy, which is 1.5 percent of GDP.

In the previous five months, Air Serbia employed over 300 people, Kondić underlined at the Air Serbia office in Belgrade.

Over 150 crew members, over 40 pilots, around 90 check-in counter clerks and 20 call center operators have been employed, he said.

Air Serbia also opened 36 new jobs in its aircraft line maintenance service.

Kondić underlined that Air Serbia traffic network is constantly growing, so last year it had 27 destinations, while by the end of this one the number will rise to 38.

As of June, Air Serbia will introduce flights for Varna, Beirut and Warsaw, Kondić said, noting that late in 2013 Belgrade-Tel Aviv flight was introduced.
