EAP Shared Services, part of Etihad Aviation Group, has opened a new global Shared Services centre, in Belgrade.

The EAP Shared Services centre was officially opened today, Monday 13 March, by Aleksandar Vučić, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Serbia;  James Hogan, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Etihad Aviation Group, and Siniša Mali, Mayor of Belgrade.

The new facility, located near Serbia’s capital city centre will perform contact centre and loyalty operations in Europe for Etihad Airways, Air Serbia, Air Seychelles and Etihad Regional, expanding in time to include Alitalia and Air Berlin, as well as their respective loyalty programmes. 

Initially over 200 Serbian nationals will be employed at the centre, which is planned to increase to approximately 685 people by 2020. The workforce is set to handle more than 4.4 million calls by 2020.

Speaking to guests and media at the opening, Prime Minister Aleksandar Vučić, said: “The EAP Shared Services Centre is another example of successful foreign investment in Serbia. The fact that this centre is being established right here in Belgrade demonstrates the confidence that renowned international companies such as Etihad have in our country and workforce. The EAP Shared Services team is multi-lingual and trained to provide world-class customer service which is a true reflection of the modern Serbia.”

James Hogan, said: “We are delighted to open this latest EAP Shared Services centre which brings many EAP airlines, and their loyalty programs, under one roof. This Centre of Excellence will provide a wealth of efficiencies for each airline and allow them to compete effectively in an increasingly complex and competitive global marketplace.”

The EAP Shared Services centre is located in the Airport City business park in New Belgrade and adds to the global portfolio of service centres operated by partner airlines. Today, Etihad Airways operates three contact centres in the emirate of Abu Dhabi, and one in Manchester.
