Serbian sky is opening to all foreign air companies that fulfils conditions set by domestic aviation authorities. The competent bodies claim that low cost companies should only apply for permits for flights to Belgrade and shall get it.

Representatives of Hungarian low-cost company "Wizz Air" talked yesterday with representatives of Serbian Directorate of civil aviation about obtaining of flight permits and expressed again their interests in flights from Belgrade.

It is very likely that that this company shall start operating in Serbia in summer next year. The talks with the competent Serbian representatives are to continue.

It is also very possible that two Greek companies shall start flying from Belgrade to Athens as of the New Year, the "Olympic Air" and the "Aegean Airlines".

The Lethonia national carrier the "Air Baltic" has also announced on its Internet site that it shall start flying from Belgrade to Riga as of May 5, 2010.

Other companies already flying from Belgrade are Hungarian "Malev" and Romanian "Tarom". Slovenian "Adria Airways" plans flights to Ljubljana and Austrian "Fly Niki" to Vienna.
