B&H Airline ATR72 skipping Tuzla until further noticeB&H Airlines’ attempt to commence services from Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina’s third largest city located in the East of the country, to Frankfurt has had a disastrous start. The first service which was schedule to commence on March 30 was cancelled after the carrier failed to sell any tickets. On the return service to Tuzla that day only 1 ticket had been sold and therefore the airline decided to cancel the flight. However future prospects for the Tuzla to Frankfurt service do not look promising. Yesterdays service was also cancelled. Flights to Frankfurt are operated from Sarajevo via Tuzla however the carrier has now dumped the stopover.
The Tuzla to Frankfurt service would have been the first scheduled commercial flight after the airport received necessary licenses for civilian flights in 1998. The Tuzla service was supposed to be operated in cooperation with Turkish Airlines through a code share agreement. They were to operate twice per week, on Mondays and Wednesdays.
