BELGRADE, June 23. /TASS/. Serbia’s airlines Air Serbia has resumed direct air links between Belgrade and New York.
"The dream has come true. We promised a while ago that we will do that although we knew that it would be hard to do, that all checks would have to be passed first and the airport must do a great deal, too," Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic said at a special ceremony at the airport, as he and also Air Serbia CEO Dane Kondic and US ambassador to Belgrade Kyle Scott cut the red ribbon.
Vucic said he was very sorry he was unable to use that first flight himself, because the process of forming Serbia’s government was still in progress and it should be completed as soon as possible.
Among the 254 passengers of the first flight were Serbian celebrities, politicians, athletes and cultural workers.
