Ryanair is to venture into Serbia
British tourists hoping to enjoy the burgeoning travel destination of Serbia can take in Germany as well with Ryanair from this autumn.
They can take advantage of the budget carrier's first foray into the eastern European country when it introduces a new Nis-Berlin route on September 4.
Ryanair announced its new return flight route on Wednesday (April 20).
It says that holidaymakers snapping up tickets before the close of next Wednesday (April 27) can get them for sub-£20 prices.
5 reasons for Brits to visit Serbia
Serbia has emerged from the shadow of its reputation of being a war-torn country to become a serious tourism nation.
Its attractions include:
• beautiful sun-kissed beaches - these include Lido, Bela Stena and Ada Ciganlija
• Belgrade: architecture connoisseurs can admire Kalemegdan Park's ancient fortress which has spanned the Ottoman, Byzantine and Roman empires. Closer to the modern day, the capital is also home to many Communist era buildings
• Novi Sad: its Petrovaradin Fortress on the River Danube's banks is home to an intriguing tunnel network and famous clock tower
• Derdap: this vast national park affords tourists a wonderful insight into the Danube and its surroundings
• Iconic spa resorts: these soothing destinations include the renowned Sokobanja
Tourists can enhance their chances of a hassle-free break by taking out trusted travel insurance.
This can compensate them if they lose their travel documents on the banks of the Danube or their belongings go missing in Belgrade.
It can also cover lost luggage and delayed and cancelled flights.
The new route
Ryanair projects that a yearly 30,000 customers could use the new route.
The Berlin-bound journey will take place twice weekly - Sunday plus Thursday.
Travellers booking a seat before next Wednesday midnight can take advantage of tickets starting at 24 euros - or £19.67.
Serbia will be the 32nd country that Ryanair has ventured into.
The carrier says passengers can expect even more new routes, cabin interiors, digital features and low fares.
