The International Airport Sarajevo wants to have a million passengers this year, and in order to achieve its goal, they decided to extend the offer in cooperation with foreign airlines. Lines from the Sarajevo airport will have company AtlasGlobal, Swiss, Air Arabia, a TUIFly will connect BiH and Belgium for the first time.
The company TUIfly Belgium plans to connect Sarajevo International Airport with airport Charleroi in Brussels from the 31st of March. Otherwise, it will be the first airline connection between Belgium and BiH.
“Negotiations with the company TUIfly Belgium are in the final stage. The flights will be implemented twice a week on Mondays and Fridays, by planes Boeing 737-7 and Boeing 737-8 with 149 and 189 seats. Tickets for the flights can already be booked on the official website of the airline. As announced from TUIfly company, ticket prices will range from 49 to 219 EIR, although in the reservation system the lowest price tickets with all taxes in one direction is 89 EUR and 168 EUR for a return ticket. Of course, ticket prices will vary depending on the available capacity and the date of travel,“ said a spokeswoman of Sarajevo Airport Sanja Bagaric.
“Swiss will operate to Zurich on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, and according to available data, the lowest price in one direction is around 137 EUR, while the price of return tickets should be 176 EUR. Air Arabia also plans to operate on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, and from the 21st of June, they are planning to operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, with an additional flight on Mondays. Since the Air Arabia is not in the Amadeus program, prices of air tickets can be checked only through their website,” said Bagaric.
Qatar Airways last year announced flights from Doha to Sarajevo, but Bagaric said that negotiations with this company have not been completed yet because the company performs commercial market analysis and justification of the introduction of line.
“International Airport Sarajevo provides incentives for the introduction of new destinations, incentives based on the number of passengers that are carried annually, as well as incentives to increase the number of flights, and we are talking about all of that with Qatar Airways, but it is still too early to say when the airline will start operations on this line,” said the spokeswoman for the International Airport Sarajevo.
To recall, Wizz Air already announced that they will establish the line between Budapest-Sarajevo from April this year.
