The first Airbus A319-100 aircraft in Air Serbia livery is parked in a hangar during the inauguration ceremony at Belgrade's Nikola Tesla Airport, Serbia, Friday, Oct. 25, 2013. Officials say that Air Serbia, Balkan country’s new national carrier partly owned by Etihad Airways, formally starts flying this weekend, spelling the end for the old loss-making JAT Airways. Air Serbia’s chief manager Dane Kondic said Friday that the company’s inaugural flight will take place on Saturday to Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. He says that “it is an important flight that will mark a crossroads.” Kondic and Serbia’s deputy prime minister Aleksandar Vucic unveiled at a ceremony at Belgrade’s airport an Airbus A319 plane bearing a double-headed eagle logo in Serbia’s national, red, white and blue colors. Vucic says Air Serbia hopes to become the leading regional airline. (AP Photo/Darko Vojinovic) less
