Air Serbia’s Newest Airbus A330 Has Mihajlo Pupin Painted On The Tail

Air Serbia has announced it is due to receive its next widebody aircraft in the next few days, revealing yet another special livery for this new Airbus A330-200. 

November 01, 2022

This is the third Airbus A330 in Air Serbia’s fleet ever and the fourth livery that the airline has had on a widebody aircraft. Its first A330 had the standard Air Serbia livery before it was repainted in a “Serbia creates” livery. The second A330 has a special livery with the portrait of Nikola Tesla, a scientist born in Austria-Hungary, on its tail.

The livery on this newest A330 is the second in what is likely to be a pattern of liveries showing portraits of historically significant figures. Air Serbia is following Norwegian’s livery pattern with this scheme. The Airbus A330 carries the registration YU-ARC, and its tail is painted with the portrait of Mihajlo Pupin, a Serbian scientist based in the United States. It was previously registered as ZS-SXW when it was operated by South African Airways, which took delivery of the aircraft in 2011.
