We are starting with our turbo prop fleet and replacing all ATR 72-200s, of which we currently have three in the fleet, as well as two ATR 72-500 planes, with the stateof-the-art ATR 72-600 to arrive during the coming period. This will significantly increase our operational efficiency, as well as the service we provide to passengers. Our ambition is to continue to develop further as a regional leader and upgrading the turbo prop fleet is an essential step on this path,” said Air Serbia CEO Jiri Marek. The new YU-ALY plane bears the Serbian national airline’s visual identity. Made in 2015, it is younger than the other planes in Air Serbia’s ATR fleet and boasts a more modern interior. This latest addition to the Serbian national airline’s fleet has Geven’s Prestige 72-seat configuration, which ensures more comfort for passengers. This aircraft is 27.17 m long, has a wingspan of 27.05 m and boasts two PW127m turboprop engines. With a maximum cruising speed of about 510 km/h, at full capacity it has a maximum range of 1,404 km. In contrast to the fleet’s current turbo prop aircraft, the ATR 72-600 brings an important new product feature by providing the option of storing large roller bags in the overhead compartments for the majority of passengers, as a common appreciated service element of Air Serbia’s jet fleet. Air Serbia will deploy its new ATR 72-600 aircraft on scheduled flights from Belgrade to Banjaluka, Vienna, Bucharest, Ljubljana, Podgorica, Prague, Sarajevo, Skopje, Sofia, Thessaloniki, Tivat, Tirana and Zagreb, but also on seasonal flights to Dubrovnik, Pula, Split and Zadar. The Serbian flag carrier will also use these new planes for scheduled flights from Niš to Ljubljana and seasonal flights to Athens, as well as for scheduled flights from Kraljevo to Istanbul and seasonal flights to Thessaloniki.
