Serbia rejects Pegasus bid to launch flights to Belgrade

The Serbian Civil Aviation Directorate has rejected a bid by Turkish low-cost carrier Pegasus Airlines to fly between Istanbul and Belgrade. The authority claims it is due to the terms of a bilateral air agreement between the two countries from 1953, however chatter in cyberspace suggests that the bid was rejected due to lobbying by Jat Airways and Turkish Airlines, both eager to protect their duopoly on the route.

Pegasus, which was planning to operate four weekly flights using a 737-800 aircraft, has stated that it will apply again for a license to fly the route.
