B&H Airlines will launch its 2009/10 winter schedule on October 25 with 3 aircraft – 2 ATR72s and 1 Boeing B737-400. While the arrival of a second Boeing aircraft is scheduled during the winter season there is still no firm date for its arrival and thus has not been scheduled on any services during the winter. Keep in mind that this is a preliminary schedule and as such is subject to change, especially when B&H is concerned. Any changes will be brought to your attention by visiting the blog.
There will be no overwhelming frequency changes during this winter when compared to the summer. Notably, the airline will increase services to Istanbul and Stockholm. Flights to Istanbul will be increased from 6 times per week to daily flights while 1 service to Gothenburg will be extended to Stockholm thus increasing the number of Stockholm bound flights from 1 to 2 per week. Another flight from Banja Luka to Zurich will be introduced. Daily flights from Sarajevo to Zurich will now be making 3 stops in Banja Luka, rather than 2.
When compared to the summer, there will be some significant time reshuffling. The Wednesday service to Vienna will be replaced by a Sunday flight. Flight times to Istanbul are being changed with an introduction of an evening flight to Istanbul and an early morning departure from Istanbul to Sarajevo. The Monday flight to Copenhagen has now been moved to Sunday instead.
New and suspended routes
The introduction of new services will depend on the arrival of a new aircraft scheduled sometime during the winter. As there is no set date for the aircraft’s arrival, new flights could be launched later during the winter season. The current fleet is still not being utilised to its maximum.
The airline is suspending services to Podgorica and Skopje. New flights from Tuzla to Istanbul are being considered. This service, if it gets a final approval, would originate from Tuzla, rather than Sarajevo. Therefore there would be a total of 9 weekly flights from Bosnia and Herzegovina to Istanbul operated by B&H. Summer 09 Winter 09/10 Summer 09 Winter 09/10
