Dragi gosti,

Cilj je na vidiku.

Dear Guests,

The finish line is in sight.

Za one koji vole trčanje, Beogradski maraton je nezaobilazan

na trkačkom kalendaru. Vijugava trasa kroz grad vodi trkače po-

red vekovnih utvrđenja Beogradske tvrđave i preko reke Save, te

pruža pogled na živopisne predele, kao i priliku da skrenu misli sa

kilometraže koja im predstoji.

Ali, pre svega, Beogradski maraton spaja hiljade ljudi, od pro-

fesionalnih trkača – kao što je Kenijac Abel Kibet Rop, ovogodišnji

pobednik maratona (istrčao je stazu za 2 sata i 24 minuta) – do

lokalnih tinejdžera koji su učestvovali u kraćim trkama. Sve u

svemu, u trci je prošlog meseca učestvovalo oko 26.000 ljudi i ja

sam posebno uzbuđen zato što je Er Srbija mogla da je podrži kao

zvanični avio-prevoznik.

Trka je odraz energičnog i prijateljskog duha Beograda, a u

širem smislu predstavlja ono što je letenje za sve nas – premošća-

vanje razdaljina, bilo da je reč o 42 km u maratonu ili, kada je o

nama reč, ono što će uskoro biti prelazak preko Atlantika.

Za manje od dva meseca od sada, uvešćemo stalnu liniju za

Njujork, koja će ponovo povezati Srbiju i Sjedinjene Države, posle

24 godine. Ciljna linija je na vidiku i mnogi ljudi iz regiona Balkana

željno očekuju prvi let.

Uvereni smo da avio-usluge treba putnicima da nude udob-

nost, izbor i fleksibilnost. Zato sam srećan što mogu da kažem da

smo nedavno proširili naš kod-šer sporazum sa Er Berlinom, čime

smo putnicima omogućili lakšu povezanost sa Bostonom i San

Franciskom preko Diseldorfa. Time smo stigli do pet gradova u SAD

koje stalno opslužujemo kod-šer letovima preko Nemačke, uklju-

čujući Majami, Čikago i Njujork.

U ovom izdanju magazina

Elevate

, u središte pažnje stavljamo

Makedoniju, koju topla leta, prirodne lepote i opuštena atmosfera

čine popularnom destinacijom za odmor. Svakog dana letimo do

glavnog grada Skoplja, a u junu počinjemo da letimo i do Ohrida,

grada na obali velikog jezera za koji mnogi kažu da ima najbolje

plaže u zemlji.

Hvala vam što ste izabrali Er Srbiju i nadamo se da uživate u

letu.

For those into running, Belgrade Marathon is a must-do on the

race calendar. Snaking through the city streets, it takes runners

past the age-old fortifications of Belgrade Fortress and across the

Sava River, offering scenic views, and a chance to take the mind

off how many kilometres are left to go.

But more than that, it brings tens of thousands of people

together, from professional runners – like Kenya’s Abel Kibet Rop,

who came first in the men’s marathon this year (clocking in at

2 hours and 24 minutes) – to local teens taking part in a shorter

fun run. All in all, about 26,000 people took part in the race last

month, which is why I’m thrilled Air Serbia could support it as the

official airline partner.

The race captures the energetic and friendly spirit of Belgrade

and, in a broader context, represents what flying is all about –

bridging the distance, whether its 42km in the case of a marathon

or, as will soon be in our case, crossing the Atlantic.

In less than two months from now, we’re going to launch

non-stop flights to New York, reconnecting Serbia and the United

States after a period of 24 years. The finish line is in sight and

many, many people from the wider Balkans region and the US are

eagerly awaiting the first flight.

It is our belief that air services should offer travellers conven-

ience, choice and flexibility, which is why I’m happy to say that

we have also recently expanded our codeshare agreement with

Air Berlin to offer travellers easy connections over Düsseldorf to

Boston and San Francisco. This brings to a total of five US cities

that we now serve with one-stop codeshare flights over Germany,

including Miami, Chicago and New York.

In this edition of Elevate, we’re putting the spotlight on Mac-

edonia, whose warm summers, natural beauty and easy-going

atmosphere make it a popular draw for the holidays. We fly daily

to the capital of Skopje and in June will begin operating flights to

Ohrid, a town that sits on the shores of a large lake, and many say

has the best beaches in the country.

Thank you for choosing Air Serbia and I hope you enjoy your

flight.
