IOSA-registered Lithuanian ACMI and charter airline, GetJet Airlines, has signed a two-year agreement with Air Serbia.
GetJet Airlines will wet-lease two Airbus A320 units to the flag carrier of the Republic of Serbia for the winter season, with an agreed fleet extension for two more units during the summer season.
A press release distributed by GetJet Airlines states that this partnership is strategically significant for both carriers as it supports the development and growth goals of the companies and expands the geography of winter flights.
Rūta Kulvinskaitė, chief executive of GetJet Airlines, said: “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.”
The extension of Air Serbia’s capacity will support the flag carrier’s goals to further expand and densify its network, as well as to increase its number of passengers.
During the winter season of 2023 Air Serbia will have two GetJets Airbus A320s in its fleet.
During the summer season of 2024 there will be four Airbus A320s and two aircraft of the same type in winter 2024.
Boško Rupić, general manager commercial and strategy at Air Serbia, said: “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.”
GetJet Airlines has stated that the partnership with Air Serbia enhances its presence in Europe and testifies the commitment to fulfil the needs of customers by offering flexibility and high-quality services.
