Banja Luka awaits AdriaAdria Airways has delivered on its promise to begin scheduled flights to Bosnia and Herzegovina’s second largest city. Flights from the Slovenian capital, Ljubljana, to Banja Luka will commence on Wednesday, July 14. The 45 minute flight will be served four times per week, on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. The airline will use its Bombardier CRJ200 aircraft, which can carry up to 48 passengers.
The start of the new service is good news for Banja Luka Airport which is not being served by any airline. Adria hopes to cash in on passengers which would use Ljubljana as a transit point for onward destinations. Most passengers from Banja Luka travel by car or bus to Belgrade or Sarajevo in order to catch their flights. It is unknown whether Adria’s service is being subsidised by the Government of the Republika Srpska, as was the case with previous airlines which once operated flights to Banja Luka.
All flight details can be found in the new route launches section on the right hand side.
