I heard THY already arrived with A320. As for Tunisair, they are currently only flying to Monastir, but I guess they will fly both to Tunis and Monastir in the summer season.
Also, I've heard that KLM is returning in March. I guess their last flight was back in 1991.

Any chance of any long haul routes from Belgrade? Why doesnt JAT operate any long haul?
Im suprised there is no long haul carriers at all serving Belgrade.
A million dollar question. For the short period of time, Uzbekistan used Belgrade as a stop on their JFK
service and they had a code-share agreement with JAT. JAT has no equipment for long haul as their last DC-10 was sold last summer and is now getting rusty in France (sorry JoKeR; I know it beaks your heart
). There are rumors that JAT will lease some 767-200s and start its North American service in May, but as far as I'm concerned, these are just rumours and I won't classify them as news.
What makes me wonder is whether any of the Chinese airlines would start flying to BEG
. Chinese community in Serbia is getting bigger and there must be a good demand that could make those flights profitable.

I think Delta should have taken Belgrade in it's trans-atlantic expansion
Delta used to have an office in Belgrade in the "good-old days". In fact, those were old Pan Am office that Delta inherited after the bankrupcy of the famous airline. I'd love to see them in BEG
, but being currently under Chapter 11 and having a shortage of planes, I suppose they will probably go for some code-share agreement with their partners in Sky (Alitalila and Air France).
