Just 24 hours after it was revealed that Air France will be suspending its flights from Paris to Belgrade next summer, the low cost Wizz Air has announced its launch of the route. Flights from Belgrade to Beauvais Airport will be inaugurated on June 1, 2013 and will operate three times per week, every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday with further details available here. The flights to Beauvais Airport, 85 kilometres from the French capital, will be Wizz Air’s 14th destination from Belgrade. Wizz Air will face off against Jat Airways which is planning to operate 14 weekly flights to Charles de Gaulle Airport next summer season and is pushing for Air France to code share on its service.

Wizz Air is planning a major expansion throughout the EX-YU region this winter with a new base to open in Skopje and new flights to be launched to both Ljubljana and Belgrade. So far, over the next year, a total of thirteen new destinations will be introduced in the region by the no frills airline. Furthermore, Wizz Air has recently resumed talks with Bosnian authorities over possible flights from the country, although this time it is eying Mostar and Tuzla rather than Sarajevo, with services to Sweden on the cards.
