Air Serbia has completed the renewal of its turboprop fleet after taking delivery of its 10th ATR 72-600 this month.

The Serbian carrier began the process of replacing is existing fleet of ATR 72-200/500s with newer, second-hand models at the start of 2022. Having taken delivery of four aircraft in 2022 and three last year, it added aircraft each in April and May this year and expects to introduce its 10th turboprop this month.

Air Serbia chief executive Jiri Marek says: ”The renewal of the turboprop fleet was one of the key strategic objectives of our company. Despite challenging market conditions, we have managed to acquire as many as ten aircraft of the same type, thus standardising our fleet.

”The average age of aircraft in our regional fleet is now 9 years, making it the youngest in the broader Western Balkans region. We are extremely pleased with the choice of aircraft and the pace of their entry into service. Thanks to them, we have significantly improved our operational efficiency.”

The airiline also operates Airbus A320s an A330s.
