After a two-month suspension of all international flights due to the pandemic, Turkish Airlines is re-establishing flights between Istanbul and Sarajevo this month, according to Klix.ba news portal.
As confirmed, flights on the route Istanbul – Sarajevo – Istanbul will be available to passengers from June 21, three times a week – on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
The return of air transport will greatly facilitate travel for Bosnians, but also for foreign tourists, especially ahead of the beginning of the 26th edition of the Sarajevo Film Festival, which will be held from 14 to 21 August this year.
Representatives of Sarajevo International Airport recently held a meeting with representatives of relevant authorities, health experts and the inspection on measures to be taken during the operation of the airport during the pandemic.
It was agreed that passengers at the airport will be obliged to respect the physical distance and wear gloves, as well as properly dispose of waste and disinfect their hands. Control staff will also be deployed at critical airport locations.
