BELGRADE (Serbia), May 6 (SeeNews) – Serbia is in talks with the government in Beijing on the launch of regular flights by flag carrier Air Serbia to China, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said. 

"We are considering the launch of Air Serbia flights to China in the forthcoming period with the support of the Chinese government," Vucic said in a video file posted on the YouTube channel of news agency Tanjug last week after meeting with China's Ambassador to Serbia, Chen Bo.

"In 2019, we had 269,000 overnight stays by Chinese tourists. We believe that with a good programme, a good plan and a good campaign, we can have 5 million overnight stays by Chinese tourists annually," Vucic said.

Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba's online travel agency platform Fliggy plans to launch a campaign for the promotion of Serbia as a tourist destination for the Chinese market on May 15, Serbian trade and tourism minister Rasim Ljajic said on Monday.
