Air Serbia Considering Miami-Belgrade Flights; MIA Reaches 176 Nonstop Destinations

Miami could soon have nonstop flights to Belgrade, Serbia, according to Routes Online.

Air Serbia CEO Jiri Marek told the website that Miami and Toronto would be some of the logical choices for long-haul expansion.

The airline is now looking for an additional A330 to allow for the expansion.

Record traffic

MIA said this week that multiple records have already been broken at the airport this year.

There are now 176 nonstop destinations served from MIA. That is higher than the 167 destinations served during the previous record year of 2019.

The airport also says it has passed its record 2019 passenger total with 46 million travelers through November, putting it on pace for a new record of 50 million passengers in 2022.

MIA needs to clean up its terminals. They are old and dirty looking. With all these flights coming in direct from overseas and the fact that the World Cup is coming around the corner it makes sense to look into expanding the terminals and renovating them

The Delta terminal is very subpar.

And that’s probably the third best concourse out of the six in the airport

Miami’s NEW airport should be modeled by the award winning new airport in Istanbul, Turkey!!! We already have direct flights there if anyone wants to take a quick trip. It’s worth the trip even if you just stay in the airport, that’s how amazing it is.

Except MIA is surrounded by development and Istanbul Airport is out in the boonies.

Eminent Domain – fairly, any existing development immediately next to an airport is not worth much anyway…

I’ll repeat here, in light of this comment, we need a higher education campus in Miami, ideally downtown on the Bay, with housing condos for students and professors and event space for world class conventions.

Hilarious!

Yeah.. and in the future, they’ll want us to bail them out to!

An educated generation of Miami will include bankers and entrepreneurs that could be bailing YOU out,

There is barely any gate space for flights and the terminals are literally falling apart. I don’t see why MIA can’t do something like MCO’s Terminal C or LGA’s terminal B

They can and SHOULD, a lot just got out on the agenda for Miami so maybe it just needs to sink in a little (not the current airport, or maybe yes that too.)

LGA was the biggest waste of money. There isn’t even enough space for modern aircraft to take off and land. It should have closed and domestic flights absorbed by JFK and Newark, with an emphasis on expanding HSR. Of course, along with the half-assed renovation of Penn Station, the governor and mayor at the time wanted stuff for “muh legacy.”

LGA is basically a domestic airport in NYC. EWR and JFK are the international airports in the NYC area. It’s similar to how Midway Airport is in Chicago, a smaller airport which is designed to serve mostly domestic routes.

LGA’s rebuilding was a joke that did nothing useful for air transportation.

I never knew there was really a visible Serbian community in Miami and South FL. Either way, it’s very good news as MIA continues to expand it’s international connectivity to different countries across the globe!

It’s welcome, but curious. There aren’t any large communities in Miami from southeastern Europe. I wonder if Air Serbia is looking to provide service to the Greek Diaspora in Latin America. On the other hand, Turkish serves Miami and the Turkish population here is only about 3,000. https://www.migrationpolicy.org/programs/data-hub/charts/us-immigrant-population-metropolitan-area

Turkey has one of the best flights to Athens, and you can stop in Istanbul on the way back. I can’t rave enough about that airport. It’s smart. Maybe Serbia is trying to do a similar route.

I’m aware of that, thank you. Since Olympic does not serve Miami, I was wondering if Air Serbia is looking to fill that market.

This direct flight would be fantastic.. Miami is great for winter tourism, and much more- its a huge hub for all central-south american routes and Caribbean..Air Serbia would fill up the plane easily with just tourists, especially during winter season..Diaspora doesn’t necessarily need to be a first pick..

Miami is great for full time business, work, raising a family etc. A lot of professionals want to travel and take vacations from Miami too.

Miami is a tourist town. You’re looking for Cincinnati. FACTS.

Where is Cincinnati? Isn’t that in a flyover state? Do they have an international port or reputation around the world as being one of the top tier US cities? Who wakes up and says I dream to move to Cincinnasty?

Sounds cold and old. Miami is the glory and beacon of hope for 21st Century America, built by unity among diverse cultures in the Great State of Florida, and growing nicely 🇺🇸

Which is why Cincinnati is for working families only and is not a tourist town, and Miami is. Thanks for proving my point.
