Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport (IATA: BEG, ICAO: LYBE) is the primary international airport serving Belgrade, Serbia. Previously known as Belgrade International Airport, it was renamed in 2006 in honour of Serbian-American scientist and
inventor Nikola Tesla.
The airport is situated 12 km (7.5 mi) west, of central Belgrade, in the Surcin Municipality, surrounded by Syrmia's fertile lowlands. Passengers on the right hand side of planes descending from the east have a view of downtown
Belgrade, especially the districts of Cukarica and Novi Beograd. 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 airport is owned and operated by the Public enterprise Aerodrom Nikola Tesla BeogradÃ�Â�. The company recorded profit of 21.5 million euros at the end of 2010.
The national flag carrier and largest airline of Serbia, Jat Airways, uses Belgrade Nikola Tesla as their main hub. It is also one of the hubs for low cost airline Wizz Air. Aviogenex charter airline, and air taxi airlines Air Pink,
Jat Airways AVIO taxi, Prince Aviation and Pelikan Airways also call the airport their home.
