Belgrade airport’s high travel season

The Belgrade Airport is preparing for the high travel season with the opening of its new central processing building, which will increase passenger capacity, as well as a renovated A gate wing and a new runway. The operator, VINCI, has been hiring more staff to handle the expected increase in demand.

Although VINCI has not provided a passenger projection for the airport this year, Air Serbia’s CEO, Jiri Marek, believes the airport will see seven million passengers, making it the busiest on record. “The expanded airport will be able to accommodate up to fifteen million passengers annually. This year, we anticipate handling seven million passengers, with three million being carried by Air Serbia. This leaves us with plenty of room for growth.

The airport’s improved connectivity will bring competitive advantages and attract passengers from other hubs to Belgrade,” Marek stated recently.
