Sharjah – Tuzla replaced by Dubai - TuzlaAs was exclusively reported several weeks ago on EX-YU aviation news, Air Arabia, the low cost UAE based airline, will commence flights to Tuzla in Bosnia and Herzegovina in cooperation with the airport’s tour operator. With the deal between the two sides now finalised, there have been some changes. Instead of flying into Sharjah (as was initially planned), located 15 kilometres from Dubai, the flights will now originate and operate directly from and to the United Arab Emirates’ largest city – Dubai. Instead of the planned June 10 start the service has been pushed back to July 1, however, both the operating days and times have stayed the same. A total of 31 flights will operate until October 24. Although Air Arabia is based in Sharjah the flights will operate out of Dubai as agreed between tour operators and the operating carrier.
Tickets for the Dubai flights can be booked via several local travel agents. Prices for a return ticket with all taxes included vary with prices running between 460 and 700 Euros. Tickets will not be sold via Air Arabia’s website.
Tuzla becomes only the second city in the former Yugoslavia to have flights to Dubai after Belgrade. Jat Airways operates 4 weekly flights to the UAE’s most populous city. Flight details for the Dubai – Tuzla – Dubai flights can be found here.
