Farewell TuzlaAir Arabia, which was hired to perform 2 weekly summer charters from Dubai Airport to Tuzla has cancelled its service. The flights, which were to mark the rebirth of Tuzla Airport have been terminated due to extremely low loads. According to the airport’s management in Tuzla, on one flight there was only one passenger, representing the difficult the route faced to attract passengers. Before services were launched in July, the airport’s management expected strong figures thanks to tourism and connecting passengers from Australia and the United States.
Originally, a total of 31 flights were planned to operate this summer with the possibility of extending the flights if they proved successful. Last month EX-YU aviation news reported that the airline was experiencing a slow start to its services. Return ticket prices for the Dubai – Tuzla flights hovered between 460 to 700 Euros. Jat Airways now remains the only airline to offer flights from the former Yugoslavia to the largest city in the United Arab Emirates.
