Novi Sad Airport

Novi Sad Airport (known locally as Аеродром Ченеј, Aerodrom Čenej) (IATA: QND, ICAO: LYNS) is located near the village of Čenej in Serbia.

It is 16 km (10 miles) north of the city of Novi Sad, on the eastern side of the Belgrade-Horgoš road. The airport can also be referred to as Čenej Airport. The site is mostly used for sport and agriculture.

The idea of building an airport on this site is not new. In 1994 construction of the control tower began, it is still not complete. A 2500 metre asphalt runway capable of accommodating 70 to 80 seater aircraft is planned. The air corridor above Novi Sad has about 800 movements per day, of which 50 are so-called 'mini-business' flights. The site also has favourable prevailing winds. Meteorological data for the last 20 years shows the least number of fog affected days in the area per year.

History

On Saturday May 22, 2004, a Let L-410UVP-E Turbolet aircraft with 20 passengers aboard, which had departed from Tivat Airport, landed at the airport. The aircraft belonged to Di Air, a Montenegrin airline. It was a promotional flight aimed at showing interest in developing this airport in the future.
