Serbia and Saudi Arabia have agreed to work on a bilateral Air Service Agreement in order to enable the introduction of scheduled flights between the two countries. The development comes following talks between Serbia’s Minister for Construction, Transport and Infrastructure, Goran Vesić, and the Saudi Minister for Transport and Logistical Services, Saleh bin Nasser Al-Jasser, in Belgrade late last week. “We had fruitful talks about bilateral relations and possibilities for deepening our cooperation in the field of air traffic. We have a plan to raise our relations to a higher level. I am confident that a bilateral agreement in the field of air traffic will be signed soon, which will enable the two countries’ national carriers to introduce nonstop flights between Belgrade and Riyadh. I have invited Mr Vesić to visit Riyadh where such an agreement could be signed”, Mr Al-Jasser said. There have never been scheduled flights between Serbia and Saudi Arabia. Currently, the only two markets in the former Yugoslavia with scheduled services to the Kingdom are Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro.
