Greece’s Aegean Airlines is increasing frequencies on a select number of destinations in the former Yugoslavia next year. The carrier will operate more flights from its home in Athens to Belgrade, Dubrovnik, Skopje and Split, and will bring forward the resumption of its seasonal service to Ljubljana, launched this year. Furthermore, the carrier is expected to continue operating its seventh-freedom flights between Skopje and Sarajevo. “We continue to look for new connectivity in the Balkan region. With our high-quality services, we will contribute to interstate mobility and contribute to trade relationships”, Aegean ‘s Chief Commercial Officer, Roland Jaggi, said.
Commencing June 1, Aegean is boosting frequencies between Athens and Belgrade from four to six weekly, with new departures added on Thursdays and Saturdays. All flights will be maintained with the Airbus A320 aircraft. To Dubrovnik, the Greek carrier will also operate six instead of four weekly flights during the peak summer travel period. New departures have been added on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, with the airline to deploy its A320s on the route. Split will see an additional weekly rotation with three instead of two weekly flights. A new service will be added on Mondays with the A320 fleet.
The airline will maintain six weekly rotations between Athens and Skopje, up from three weekly which was maintained for most of the 2023 summer. In addition, its newly launched service between Skopje and Sarajevo will continue to operate three times per week, although tickets are yet to go on sale for next summer. Seasonal flights to Ljubljana will be restored on April 5, 2024 and will continue to run two times per week. There have been no changes to the airline’s planned operations to Zagreb and Podgorica, which will be maintained three and two times per week respectively. Aegean Airlines is yet to unveil new destinations for 2024, giving hope to other cities in the former Yugoslavia still pursuing connectivity with Athens that they may be included in Aegean’s line-up of routes.
