DW: Belgrade–Pristina flights several times a week on board of Airbus A320

January 22, 2020

The German low-cost airline Eurowings' Airbus A230 planes will fly directly between Serbia's and Kosovo capitals several times a week with the starting date still to be decided, the Deutsche Welle (DW) reported on Wednesday.

 The company told DW that "different commercial issues are still open."

"The start of the flights is still undecided," a representative of the Eurowings Florian Grencderfer told the DW.

He added that the company already had its base in Pristina where the Eurowings headquarters would be.

The Lufthansa-owned company is one of the leading airlines in South-Eastern Europe and the main one at the Kosovo and Croatian markets.

The Statement-of-intent came after intensive negotiations and adjustments launched and carried out by the US ambassador to Germany Richard Grennell.

The A320 planes have 180 seats, business class, more comfortable class and a standard economy class with 90 seats in the rear part of the aircraft.

Eurowings is a point-to-point-carrier and most of its destinations include those from German airports to those in "the European foreign countries."

The company also flies from six cities in Austria and three in Switzerland.

At the beginning of the last year, Eurowings withdrew from almost all long-distance routes and currently flies to six destinations in the US, Cuba and the Dominican Republic.
