The prime minister thanked the United Arab Emirates and Sheikh Mohammed Al Nahyan for everything they have done for Serbia, as well as Etihad, which, he says, did not have to calculate much, but thanks to the friendship of Belgrade with Abu Dhabi, we can be proud of the success of "Air Serbia".

- We are proud that we have a very decent airline as a small country, and you can see how important that is based on other countries that have troubles with debt and can't solve the problems with airlines - said Vucic.

He added that thanks to that cooperation, the number of passengers has been doubled on Nikola Tesla airport in Belgrade in the past three years, while the number of passengers of national airline has been increased for 2.6 times.

Vucic said that he expects the establishment of direct line with Beijing with one Chinese airline and significant flow of tourists and increase of income.

In the past few years, over a million and 100 thousand tourists walked through Belgrade in the past few years. And a total of 2.6 million through the entire Serbia.

- I think we can double that in two years, to have 4-5 million. All it takes is Etihad, without Etihad, we can't do it - said Vucic.

As he explained, it is not the question if we are worth it, but that Etihad knows how to do their work, and they have "network and connectivity we can only dream of".
