The City of Niš has held talks with the Ambassador of the United Kingdom to Serbia over the potential introduction of flights from the city to the country. The two sides agreed to intensify contacts with airlines in order to secure services. “The possibility of launching flights from Niš to one of the cities in the United Kingdom is under consideration, in order to further strengthen links between the city and this country”, Mayor, Dragana Sotirovski, said. Wizz Air filed plans to launch flights between London Gatwick Airport and Niš during the 2020/2021 winter season, however, ultimately it chose to use the slots for another route. London was one of the first international destinations to be launched from Niš upon its opening for commercial traffic, with Adria Airways introducing the service in 1988. A year later, JAT Yugoslav Airlines also commenced flights to the capital of the United Kingdom. Following the airport’s reopening in 2004, Thomsonfly (today’s TUI Airways) launched seasonal winter operations from London to Niš in 2006 for holidaymakers heading to nearby ski resorts. The route lasted for two years.
