The summer schedule has just been released on the website, and there are few observations that can be made. A new addition to the list of destinations is DXB, which will have four weekly. Three destinations that still have an undetermined schedule are: HAJ, LED, LJU, and CFU. SSJ is cancelled.
Flights per week:
Today the Serbian minister for transport and communication visited Ottawa, where she attended the signing of an agreement between PTT Srbije and Canada Post. During her visit, she confirmed that JAT is planning on establishing a direct charter service to Toronto (YYZ), starting this June. The BEG-YYZ-BEG service should be operated using the DC10, with two flights per week leading into September. She stated that the airline would then assess the operational feasibility of continuing this service in the off-season; however, with a reduced service of only once weekly.
BTW: As of April 15th, JAT will enforce a smoking ban on all flights. Up to now, a smoking ban only existed on domestic services.
