Air Serbia to fly to Tianjin in China

Air Serbia on December 9, 2022 will launch direct flights between Belgrade and Tianjin, the fourth largest city in the People’s Republic of China.

Due to current COVID-19 limitations, there will be one flight a week between the two cities, specifically, there will be a flight from Belgrade to Tianjin on Fridays, while the return flight from the largest port city in north China to the Serbian capital will be operated on Sundays.

The national carrier is re-establishing direct flights to China after 22 years, since October 2000, when JAT operated its last flight to Beijing.

At the moment, Air Serbia will be the only European airline flying from Tianjin, and one of few European carriers operating direct flights to China.

An Airbus A330-200 from Air Serbia’s long-haul fleet will be deployed on the Belgrade-Tianjin route, and the average duration of flight is 10 hours from Belgrade to Tianjin and 12 hours from Tianjin to Belgrade.

Tianjin is a city in China’s northeast with 14 million inhabitants on the coast of the Bohai Sea, which is an extension of the Yellow Sea. The city is the main port through which China’s capital Beijing is supplied and the most important port in the north of China. There is a 117-km-long high-speed railroad from Tianjin to Beijing, making the commute between the two cities last about 30 minutes. Tianjin has been an important transport and trade hub since the 13th century, and the city boasts edifices in the modern, traditional Chinese and European styles. Today, Tianjin is an important industrial and financial centre which, apart from Beijing, Shanghai and Chongqing, has special status in the People’s Republic of China and is under direct supervision of the Chinese Government.
