The agreement, effective from February 1, 2023, will allow passengers convenient travel to over 40 destinations when travelling on each other’s networks. Qatar Airways currently operates five weekly flights between Doha and Belgrade, the Serbian capital.

The codeshare agreement opens up a slew of new destinations for its passengers to use a single booking to continue their journey to European countries such as Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Slovenia among others served by Air Serbia, the carrier said in a statement.

“This partnership will allow us to expand our footprint in the Central and Eastern European markets where we are looking forward to offering additional travel choices for our customers,” said Qatar Airways group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker.

From its hub at Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport, Air Serbia serves more than 70 destinations in Europe, the Mediterranean, North America, Asia and Africa. The two carriers have a long-standing interline cooperation.

Subject to obtaining all necessary government approvals and once all conditions are fulfilled, Air Serbia plans to extend its coverage to Bangkok, Cape Town, Johannesburg, Phuket, Seoul, Tokyo, Yerevan and Zanzibar, among others.  Passengers can book their travel with both airlines, through online travel agencies as well as with local travel agents.

“We are joining forces to provide passengers with new connection opportunities and access to unique destinations from both networks,” added Air Serbia, chief executive officer, Jiří Marek.

“Through this cooperation, we believe that we will be able to jointly bring to Serbia more traffic and opportunities for trade and tourism, as well as to increase the traffic between the two hubs.”
