Serbia’s flagship airline Air Serbia has launched a direct flight route between the Serbian capital, Belgrade, and Cairo, Egyptian state news agency MENA reported Thursday.

The first direct flight between the two cities will be operated next week, Egyptian Ambassador to Serbia Amr Al-Goweily said.
