FARE DEAL: Business Class To Eastern Europe From $1398 Roundtrip

Air Serbia is offering New York JFK – Belgrade from $1398 roundtrip in business class for travel now through March. This was first spotted by Thrifty Traveler‘s premium airfare deal alert service.

Key details of fare basis WLMRUS:

  • Complete travel by March 27, 2023
  • Must issue tickets by October 2, but no reason to believe the fare will last this long
  • Non-refundable, changes permitted for 200 euros but would involve repricing to then-current fare

During the pandemic Air Serbia replaced its Airbus A330 and introduced a new business class with staggered lie-flat seats. Credit flight miles to Etihad Guest.

Known for dance clubs (party boats on the Danube are more of a summer thing), you might still enjoy the beach and tourism in and around Belgrade as well. Belgrade Fortress is one of the world’s oldest strongholds, invaded more than 100 times. And drink Rajika (fruit brandy) while you visit the city. You might also use Serbia as a jumping off point for the rest of the region, and Nikola Tesla Airport is easy for short connections.

  2. I would be wary of booking on Serbia air, this summer I took my family on a Serbian air flight from Prague to dubrovnik, transferring in Belgrade, and we had to check our bags. My daughter’s bag was stolen in belegrade, with the airline keeping me on hold for 3 hours, lying about the bags location and I had to file insurance claim due to ot going missing. And my daughter had no very little clothes to wear while we were in croatia.
