Nordwind began flying from Moscow (Sheremetyevo) to Belgrade on January 24, together with Aeroflot and Serbian carrier Air Serbia.
The declared frequency is once a week on Sundays. The price of air tickets is about 459 Euros for a round trip. The company noted that the first flight was well filled.
Now the tour operator Pegas Touristik, a strategic partner of Nordwind, starts selling of package tours to Belgrade by these flights. A price for a week tour for two adults at a 4* hotel with breakfast starts from 947 Euros.
From December 20, to enter Serbia you must have a negative PCR test for coronavirus in English, made no more than 48 hours before departure to Serbia.
Visitors must notify in advance the Chamber of Commerce on their arrival and within 24 hours after entering the country travelers must undergo the PCR test. For example, upon arrival in the country, you can make a rapid test at a Serbian medical laboratory and, if the result turns out to be negative, continue the planned activities. Visa for Russians in Serbia is not required.
Tour operators are generally optimistic about the prospects of the new flights. They remind that Serbia today is actually the only European destination where tourists can go and, of course, they will use this chance.
The new flight will be in demand, since now there is a shortage of transportation on the destination, moreover, the flights are operated at the demanded time.
