On June 23, Serbia's national airline launched its first flight between Belgrade and the U.S. since American sanctions halted the route in 1992 amid the Balkans war that resulted in the breakup of Yugoslavia. Serbia's current government, however, is eager to move past those dark days; the nation is a formal candidate for EU membership, for example.

Article | February 11, 2020

The Airbus A220 isn’t really a new aircraft. Bombardier first flew the CSeries in September 2013, with its entry into service in July 2016. And yet, the A220 seems to be answering problems that we’re not quite having yet. Airbus predicts a need for 7,000 A220s over the next two decades, and that’s probably not too overoptimistic.
