Belgrade Airport Mini Guide
Belgrade’s a Little Unusual for a City Break Isn’t it?
Yes it is and that’s part of its attraction. Not too many people go there for their breaks and so the temptation to rip off tourists with high prices isn’t so prevalent. There’s a lot to see in the city as it was up until fairly recently considered to be influenced by Middle Eastern culture having been part of the Ottoman Empire for centuries. Today it is multicultural but bears much evidence of its Turkish past in the architecture, the place names and language. Eating out in the city is an experience too with a wide range of spicy food available in a huge number of traditional restaurants.
How do I get to Belgrade for my Break?
There are many airlines that fly to Nikola Tesla but the only flight from the UK
is with Wizzair from Luton Airport
. If that is inconvenient it’s possible to fly to one of several European hubs and take connecting flights.
What’s Nikola Tesla Airport Like?
Due to a modernisation programme after the end of the Balkan Wars, Terminal 2 was completely rebuilt and Terminal 1 refurbished. The result was that the airport has the look and feel of a world class airport with acres of marble and spotlights. Terminal 1 is used by low cost airlines and charter flights whilst Terminal 2 accepts the growing number of scheduled flights.
What can I Expect When I Arrive?
The airport is well organised, cool and clean and after you’ve passed through passport control and collected your luggage you enter the spacious arrivals hall. There’s an airport information desk in the centre of the arrivals hall, easily spotted which can deal with general enquiries about the airport and advise on onward travel. There are several tourist information companies represented at the airport, each with their own desk and offering information on places to stay and things to do.
If you need money, there are branches of four banks and three currency exchange offices at the airport plus several ATMs. You’ll be spoilt for choice with ways to get to your destination as there are several buses operating various routes into the city along with over a dozen taxi companies licenced to operate from there. Numerous car hire companies are represented at the airport whose desks can be found along the back wall in the arrivals hall. The airport is disabled friendly and an assistance service for people with reduced mobility is available with 48 hours’ notice.
And on my Return?
Again, you won’t be bored there. Dozens of shops are dotted all over the airport on both levels selling a wide range of gifts and services including a newsagents/bookshop and a duty free shop. There are also a couple of shops selling typically Serbian gifts including produce and handicrafts. You’ll be spoilt for choice when eating at the airport with restaurants on each level serving a variety of meals, hot, cold and snacks together with bars and cafes. Wi-Fi is available in Terminal 2, free of charge so you can check emails, Facebook etc.
- Expansion plans were put into practice in the spring of this year with the commencement of work on both terminal 1 and 2's gates to add extra space. A new control tower will also be built and the work is expected to be completed by the beginning of 2013.
