“After more than three decades, flight JU 506/507 will mark the return of the national airline to Chicago. It is an extremely important city and we are sure that direct flights between Belgrade and Chicago will mean a lot not only for the Serbian diaspora, but also for the wider Balkan region. By introducing flights between these two cities, the region will be better connected to Chicago and passengers will have more choice. With the good connections offered by Air Serbia, we expect great interest in these direct flights, for those who want to continue their journey to other destinations.said George Petkovi?, Vice President Americas, Air Serbia.
