B&H Airlines - too optimisticB&H Airlines is terminating services to Prague and Berlin due to their low profitability. The 2 destinations were launched over the summer after the Bosnian national carrier received a Boeing B737-400 from Turkish Airlines. The services to Prague and Berlin were launched as part of 9 new destinations B&H had started up. Flights to Prague, which operated 4 times per week, will be terminated today while flights to Berlin, which operate 2 times per week, will cease on September 15. The flights had problems from the very beginning as the launch date of the services were constantly delayed and moved due to low passenger interest. Most other recently launched services are also unprofitable due to a lack of interest on behalf of passengers. During the summer B&H Airlines launched flights to Stockholm, Copenhagen, Gothenburg, Dusseldorf, Vienna, Skopje and Podgorica, together with Prague and Berlin.
Local media suggest that other destinations might be cut by the start of the winter season, which begins in late October. Dusseldorf is expected to join Prague and Berlin as a dumped destination although there has not been any official word yet. B&H Airlines will now serve a total of 11 destinations from Sarajevo. In the first half of the year B&H was also forced to terminate services from Tuzla to Frankfurt due to low interest.
