Boeing B737-700 ... soon in B&H liveryThe CEO of B&H Airlines has revealed that the airline will be receiving 2 Boeing B737-700 aircraft, the first of which will enter the fleet in January. A second aircraft of the same type will arrive in March 2010, just prior to the start of the summer season. As a result, the Bosnian national carrier will return its current sole jet engine aircraft, the Boeing B737-400, to its owner Turkish Airlines. The B737-700s, which will be registered in Bosnia and Herzegovina, will be approximately 4 years old.
Speaking of new services B&H’s CEO, Nudžeim Rečica, said in an interview on Saturday that the airline will begin operations to Amsterdam which will allow its passengers to connect to flights to the United States and Canada. Rečica also announced that the airline’s management is working on improving its schedule and frequencies to Istanbul, Vienna, Frankfurt and Zurich and is hoping to sign code share agreements with Austrian and Lufthansa on flights from Sarajevo to these cities.
Unlike previous announcement by Rečica, that the airline will operate with 3 jet engine aircraft by the end of 2010, it now appears the airline will operate with 2 ATR72s and 2 Boeing B737-700s.
