Air Serbia, the national airline of the Republic of Serbia, has named the Airbus A330 aircraft which will fly between Belgrade and New York after legendary Serbian scientist and inventor Nikola Tesla.
The name of the wide-body jet was officially unveiled at a special ceremony in Belgrade.
Nikola Tesla (1856 – 1943) is celebrated as one of the greatest minds of the 20 th century, and is credited with developing many inventions that have shaped modern society, including the alternating-current electricity system, radio technology, x-rays and early models of electric motors. He lived most of his live in New York.
Following the unveiling, the airline hosted an on-board tour of the Airbus A330 aircraft that will be deployed on the Belgrade – New York route from tomorrow to give journalists and reporters a first-hand look at the special wide-body jet.
During the visit, Serbian media had a chance to see the interior décor of the 254-seat aircraft as well as tour the passenger cabins, highlights of which include lie-flat seats in Business Class, menus inspired by classic Serbian cuisine, and inflight entertainment systems with monitors at every seat.
