Air Serbia and LOT Polish Airlines have signed a codeshare agreement to provide enhanced connections within Europe, and to the Middle East.

The agreement was signed in Miami during IATA's AGM by the CEOs of the two partnering airlines, Dane Kondić of Air Serbia and Sebastian Mikosz of LOT.

Air Serbia will place its JU code on LOT's flights to Vilnius, Tallinn and Riga, allowing travelers to book round trips between Belgrade and the Baltic States’ capitals via Warsaw.

LOT’s LO code will be placed on Air Serbia’s flights to Podgorica and Tivat in Montenegro, as well as its daily service to Abu Dhabi.

The codeshare agreement became operational this week, although both sets of flights await regulatory approval.

“Codeshare agreements are an important pillar of our strategy to continuously offer our guests greater choice and flexibility to key destinations, and our commercial partnership with LOT is a crucial step in further enhancing our presence in Northern Europe via Warsaw,” Kondić said.

“We are very happy that, together with Air Serbia, we are now able to offer our passengers new exciting destinations and extend even more travel opportunities,” Mikosz said. “Passengers traveling from Warsaw gain the possibility to reach the capital city of UAE, and two major cities in Montenegro.”
