“Despite harsh competition, we’re constantly working to attract new airlines and to adjust our approach to specific needs of each airline. As a result of that, in less than seven months of this year, five new airlines (WizzAir, Tuifly, Atlasglobal, Nesma Airlines and Wataniya Airways) have established flights from our airports. We are also in the process of negotiations with one of the largest airlines in the world, Qatar Airways. This trend of positive business, with an increased number of flights and passengers, are expected in the upcoming period,” they told us from the Sarajevo International Airport.
