Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport (Serbian: Аеродром Београд - Никола Тесла / Aerodrom Beograd - Nikola Tesla) (IATA: BEG, ICAO: LYBE), is an international airport serving Belgrade, Serbia. Previously known as Belgrade Airport or Surčin Airport, it was renamed in 2006 in honour of scientist and inventor Nikola Tesla. It is the busiest airport in former Yugoslavia.
The airport is situated 18 km (11 mi) west of Belgrade center in the municipality of Surčin, surrounded by Srem's fertile lowlands. In 2008 the airport installed ILS CAT IIIb equipment to allow aircraft to land and depart in the heaviest of fog, which in past years led to numerous flight diversions mostly in late December and early January.
The national flag carrier and largest airline of Serbia, Air Serbia (former Jat Airways), uses Belgrade Nikola Tesla as their hub. It is also one of the operating bases for low cost airline Wizz Air. The air taxi services Air Pink, Jat Airways AVIO taxi and Prince Aviation also call the airport their home. The airport is operated by the Public enterprise "Aerodrom Nikola Tesla Beograd". The airport recorded a net profit of RSD 1.4 billion for the first three quarters of 2014. As of 2014, Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport is the second fastest growing major airport in Europe.(Wikipedia)
