GetJet & Air Serbia Sign Long-Term Partnership
On November 14, 2023, Lithuanian ACMI and charter operator, GetJet Airlines and the Republic of Serbia’s flag carrier, Air Serbia, signed a new long-term two-year partnership to expand Air Serbia’s fleet to ultimately support the flag carrier’s growth goals as well as GetJet’s too.
This new agreement will GetJet to wet-lease two of its Airbus A320s to Air Serbia during the next two winter seasons, with a further two for a total of four Airbus A320s being wet-leased during the summer season.
These leased aircraft will be based out of Air Serbia’s home base in Belgrade’s Nikola Tesla Airport (BEG) and will be operated on services to various European destinations, such as Larnaca, Heraklion, Rhodes, Catania, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Antalya and Hurghada.
The addition of up to four additional aircraft will allow Air Serbia to achieve its goals of further expanding and densifying its route network throughout Europe.
Commenting on their new partnership with Air Serbia, GetJet Airline’s Chief Executive Officer, Rūta Kulvinskaitė, says, “We proudly announce our new long-term partnership with the flag carrier of Serbia that allows us to use our experience and expertise carrying passengers across the European network. We believe that additional capacity and our full support will contribute to the development goals of Air Serbia and will bring the most popular European destinations closer to passengers from Serbia.”
“These past years proved the importance of ACMI operations in supporting the airlines during the surge of travellers and we are glad that we earned the trust of major air carriers across Europe and beyond.”
Adding to Kulvinskaitė’s comments, Air Serbia’s General Manager of Commercial and Strategy, Boško Rupić, says, “We are very happy to establish a long-term cooperation with a reliable ACMI provider such as GetJet Airlines. One very interesting specific of this cooperation is the fact that on flights operated by GetJet Airlines aircraft business class service will be provided, which is currently not available with our other ACMI partners.”
“With the continuous expansion of our fleet, both with aircraft in our livery and aircraft of ACMI partners, we are getting closer to the number of four million carried passengers in 2023, which will be a significant and important achievement for the Serbian national airline.”
