The Air Serbia Economy cabin on the A319 that flies from Belgrade to Thessaloniki features 132 seats, in a 3-3 layout. It’s a small plane, and getting the attention of someone should you need assistance isn’t an issue. Colour wise it’s blue, grey and white, keeping in line with Air Serbia’s branding. When it comes to cleanliness, everything nice and clean.


The leather seat has dimensions of about 81.3cm x 45.7cm (32in x 18.0in), a bit larger than you’ll find in most economy cabins flying this sort of distance. Like any economy seat, it doesn’t recline that far back.

There are small armrests, and a mesh pocket at the back of the seat in front to place a few things. There’s not much space to get work done with the tray down, and there are no power outlets or USB plugs.


There is no in-flight entertainment aboard this flight. Each economy seat features a plastic insert where you’ll find assorted info cards, and Air Serbia’s ‘Elevate’ magazine. It’s a good read, with several interesting travel related articles, destination guides and the like.


A bottle of water and small packet of biscuits are provided at the start of the flight, and you can call for more water if need be. If you want anything else, there’s a small snack menu of food and beverages that you can purchase during the flight.


There are minimal amenities on this flight. Access to the internet is available via Air Serbia’s Wi-Fly Wi-Fi service. Several data and price packages are available.


When I’m on a short flight like this, what I’m looking for is quite simple. Easy check in, and a comfy seat for the hour that I’m reading, or playing some games on my phone. Anything above that is a bonus. On this flight, Air Serbia did exactly what I wanted it to, and I’d have no problem flying with them again.
