Passenger plunge at B&H Airlines

B&H records poor Q1 results as Sarajevo continues impressive run

Financial problems, network cuts and bad publicity have taken their toll on B&H Airlines with the carrier recording a significant decline in passenger numbers during the first quarter. B&H, which now operates flights only to Zurich via Banja Luka and charter services from Mostar to Italy with a single ATR 72 aircraft, handled 3.604 travellers during the first three months, down 41.8% compared to the same period last year. Of those, 3.152 passengers were carried on scheduled services, while the other 452 on charter flights. The number of operated flights declined by 13.7%, the Federal Office for Statistics of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina reports. The lacklustre performance comes as no surprise, with the airline suspending flights to Belgrade and Copenhagen during the first three months. In addition, the carrier was grounded for over a week due to financial issues and blocked bank accounts.

B&H Airlines’ woes are continuing into the second quarter. The carrier’s accounts have again been blocked by the asset company HETA. B&H owes some eight million euros to HETA for the ten-year financial lease of two ATR 72 aircraft. Following marathon talks in February with B&H’s owner - the Federation government of Bosnia and Herzegovina - HETA agreed to reprogram the carrier’s debts and unblock its accounts. However, neither the former nor the newly formed Federation government have made any of the promised payments to HETA. The airline has cancelled today’s service to Zurich. The ten-year financial lease of the aircraft, arranged with the asset company and the Hypo Alpe Adria Bank, expires this month. It is uncertain whether the lease will be extended under the current circumstances. B&H Airlines recorded a net loss of 6.5 million euros in 2014 and handled 35.606 passengers.

Despite B&H Airlines’ problems, Sarajevo Airport has continued to perform well, with strong growth recorded during April. It welcomed 63.064 passengers last month, marking its busiest April on record. The numbers represent an 11.4% increase compared to the same month last year. The strong growth came despite only a 1% increase in the number of operated flights. Bosnia and Herzegovina’s busiest airport processed 132.804 kilograms of commercial cargo, up 3%. During the first four months, Sarajevo Airport handled 196.945 travellers, up 13.2% on last year. In a statement, the airport said, “We expect to see further growth in the coming period”. Earlier this week, Swiss International Air Lines launched services from Zurich to Sarajevo, providing additional competition to B&H Airlines on the route. Furthermore, Flydubai will double its operations to Sarajevo to four weekly flights during the peak summer season, from July 24 to early September. The additional flights have already been added to the system and are bookable through the airline’s website. Services between Dubai and Sarajevo were launched last December.

    3. ^ Systemic, Anonymous, of the entire govt/bureaucratic structure in BiH. 4 (yes, four) bloated layers of ineffective government - national, entity, canton/regional and opcina. A similar-sized nation New Zealand gets it right with just two - national and regional.

      I'd hate to think what all those unemployed government workers would do on the other hand!

      This poor airline hasn't had a hope in recent years. Just imagine the success if a fraction of that wasted money went into providing a proper national airline serving both entities!?

    3. But isn't there KL and LO to further push the numbers? Additional 5,000 passengers seems very little.
      Maybe a few carriers are not performing as expected?

      Delete
    4. LO is not a newcomer AFAIK. It just replaced the Eurolot brand with LOT. KLM is not a big player.
      Remember that Star alliance is highly centralized system where the large ones(Lufthansa, Turkish, Singapore, United, Air Canada and ANA) subordinate all other members. For example, I am sure that there are several time more Polish passengers traveling to US and Canada than direct flights from Warsaw currently can handle. But they're mainly taken through Frankfurt, Stockholm and other Alliance hubs. Similar things happen with long haul tourists to Croatia, especially those from East Asia. There is clearly enough of them to have one to three direct flights daily April through October but they're massively funneled via Istanbul, Frankfurt, Vienna and Zurich.

      Delete
    5. Wasn't this the first April with both LO and KL in Zagreb? I can't remember when they launched flights.

      Delete
    6. this is bad result, especially because easter was at the start of the month. And a lot of new capacity was added (lot, klm, flydubai, qatar direct flights, air serbia, swiss started during this month, even air croatia that was short lived contributed to this month)

Ljudi pricaju opusteno o avijaciji ovde, a ti konstantno dizes neku tenziju i izazivas nerpijatnu atmosferu. Shvatam da si vatreni fan Air Srbije ali ne moraju svi da je vole niti imaju obavezu. Ima dosta profesionalaca ovde koji nisu ostrasceni i zele da citaju i pisu o avijaciji bez da imaju dezurnog vojnika da im govori ko je najbolji.. Prema tome, imaj malo postovanja prema drugima. PR koji ovde obavljas za Air Srbije je kontraproduktivan.

    17. Purger what is your view on this results? One thing is for sure thought, both ZAG and BEG performed so so in April. Of course people should be aware that even if both ZAG and BEG continue with yearly growth of 5-7% that will be a excellent results. Eventually after few years with this growth airport would have a respectable number of pax. After all 5-7% can be considered natural growth, while 30-40% growth is definitely inflated. Also do not forget that MOST big airports around the world have a much smaller growth per year. ( this is generally speaking, I do not need some people posting stats of how some bigger airports have 30% growth)

    18. Sine, gledaj, istinski uživam u ovom blogu i češće sam na njemu nego na Croatian Aviation Forumu. Nemalo puta sam rekao da smatram kako je Air Serbia dobar projekt, kamo sreće da je Croatia takav (a pokrenuli smo veliku akciju 2010. koja je bila slična projektu JU, samo ne tolike širine jer se zadržavala na prostoru exYu i više je bila orjentirana zapadu). No, to ne znači da nisam kritičan prema JU. Ni izbliza kao OU zato što je OU diletantski vođena kompanija koja je trenutno bitno lošija od JU. Ipak, to ne opravdava niz loših poteza JU i neke sektore koji su loši u tome. Isto tako nije nelegitimno postavljati pitanje enormnih subvencija i to sa tri osnove

      1. Koliko je to legalno i legitimno u kontekstu aspiracija Srbije za ulazak u EU i postupanja protiv temeljnih načala EU

      2. Koliko to ima negativnih posljedica po ostale prijevoznike u BEG i potencijalne prijevoznike u BEG, a što će definitivno imati za dugoročne posljedice po zračni prometu u Srbiji.

      3. Ima li JU dovoljno sredstava za ovakvu ekspanziju i dumping, te što nakon što se sredstva icrpe ili nakon 2016. kada se ne planira dalja investicija. Kako će se to manifestirati na ovaj optimističan i megalomanski projekt.

      I u tom konktestu zdrava diskusija niti je mržnja prema JU niti većina ljudi na ovom formumu ima negativne konotacije prema JU ili prema OU.

      Naravno, ne slažemo se svi uvijek. Niti ćemo. Niti trebamo. Ali tome i služe civilizirane i zdrave rasprave na formuima. Razmjenjujemo mišljenja i učimo.

      I upravo zato tvoje ponašanje jest neprimjereno jer svaki, ali svaki puta dižeš tenzije, stvaraš neugodnu atmosferu na ovom blogu, provociraš i omalovažavaš ostale članove bloga. Pritome to činiš vrlo neuko, iznosivši neprovjerene informacije, pretpostavke, te soliš pamet a zapravo jako malo znaš. I nemalo puta samo odmahnem rukom i kažem a bolje se ne uplitati u to jer tko sa "djetetom krene spavat popišan se ustaje". No, masu puta stvarno pretjeraš i ispada da dok se ne reagira onda si uvjeren kako posjeduješ znanje, vještine i kako argumenti stoje, pa te to hrani da još više ustraješ u iritaciji i netoleranciji.

      Dok si ti u školi gušt je biti na ovom blogu, čim ti ostaviš prvi komentar svima je muka. I to nema veze sa tvojim godinama. Jer, mladiću, mogao si shvatiti da 99% ljudi na ovom blogu žestoko te kritizira. A i ona manjina koja te podržava upitno je koliko su to stvarni ljudi, a koliko ti pišeš kao anonimac sebi samome podršku, pošto je nekoliko puta bilo vidljivo da si ti autor tih komentara.

      Sinko, iskreno te molim, shvati da si mlad, da jako malo znaš i da si ekstremno iritantan, te da tvoje neprimjereno ponašanje nije prihvatljivo za veliku većinu ljudi na ovom blogu. Ako netko nekoga iritira onda je čudno da inzistira na tome da i dalje bude dio zajednice koju iritira. To je odlika limitiranog intelekta ili lošeg karaktera. Iz svega što sam vidio prvo nije, a drugo je stvar osobnog izbora, tj. neovisno o tvom odgoju dovoljno si star da mijenjaš svoj karakter ili odgojni background. I da, svi smo mi bili mladi i kad nam je netko dijelio lekcije, kao ja tebi sada, odmahivali smo rukom jer smo u tim godinama najpametniji. Ali, sinko, shvati, puno previše ljudi na ovom blogu ti kaže DOSTA VIŠE!

      Zapravo prestrašno je da su ljudi na ovom blogu jedinstveni samo u činjenici negativnog stava prema tvom neprimjerenom ponašanju. Ujedinio si ovaj blog.

      Ja bih sada napisao IGNORE INN

      ali ni to ne donosi rezultate. Pa mislim da bi admin trebao jedno vrijeme brisati tvoje komentare neovisno kakvog su karaktera pa da naučiš lekciju. Jednostavno brisati po difoltu. Pa češ biti banan neko vrijeme. Do sada je admin brisao sve napade na tebe (i tvoje komentare koji su te napade izazvali) i time samo još produbio problem. Naravno, adminovo je pravo da vodi blog kako najbolje umije, ali bojim se da tvoja iritantnost i netolerantnost odbijaju ljude od ovog bloga. Mene prvog, a ja imam konjske živce.

      dakle u usporedbi sa prošlom godinom imamo ovog travnja nove kompanije koje prošle godine nismo imali:

      - flyDubai
      - KLM
      - LOT
      - ECA za Rovinj (u stvari jel itko zna leti li se to ili ne)
      - Air Serbia
      - Swiss je letio 10 posljednjih dana travnja
      - pa čak i Air Croatia je imala nešto odrađenih letova
      - nešto malo povečanja ima i Croatia (Bruxelles, dodatni let za Dubrovnik i Split spram prošle godine)

      Dakle obavljeno je bar 40 dodatnih letova tjedno (taman koliko je letjela Air Croatia, nastavio je letjeti Swiss)

      I još je bio Uskrs. Iskreno ne razumijem kako je ovo povečanje toliko skromno. Ekstremno razočaravajuće!!!!

Ja dolazim ovdje zato sto me tema zanima i zato sto zelim da nesto naucim i podjelim ono sto sam cuo, procitao naucio (ili mislim da sam naucio). Cinjenica da neko ima razlicito misljenje od tebe nije znak ljubomore, laganja, podmuklosti itd. Ljudi nevrlo cesto iamaju RAZLICITO MISLJENJE I to je OK, cak pozeljno.

      Zelio bih da se pridruzim apelu da se malo urazumis, smiris, spustis loptu I da omogus svima pa I sebi da jos vise uzivamo u razmjeni informacija, znanja, iskustava o temi koju ocigledno svi jako volimo. Neobracati paznju na provokacije, precutati nesto zarad veceg interesa je odlika razumnih ljudi. Nazaost kod tebe se to bas sad ne vidi.

      Isto tako bih zelio da uputim apel svima koji cesto provociraju INN-NS podsjecajuci ga na neke njegove prethodne (zapaljive) izjave da to ne rade vise, jer se onda puno ne razlikuju od njega.

    25. BEG growth should stabilize around 5-10% while Air Serbia's growth should continue in the ~15-20% on average for the coming two years. That is of course in the current network configuration and without any expansion. Lets not forget that in only two years from now Air Serbia should start receiving 10 A320 and i hardly see where they're gonna send them to. It is a matter of survival for Air Serbia to open a number of eastern and long-haul destinations in the coming future since the current network is simply unviable from the point of view of profitability. The European market is saturated and except for the business class offer ASL has little to reap from most of it. Air Serbia needs to place itself in the Eastern markets what Aegean has been successfully doing since its merger with Olympic, what shouldn't be too difficult with the right schedules and given Aegean's crappy product, yet Air Serbia seems to be totally ignoring those markets that should be key to its survival, instead of relying on a network that we could call 'glorified Jat'. Needless to say that if TK stopped its expansion half-way today they would already be bankrupt. You need to reach a critical mass and scale before getting profitable what requires investments and Air Serbia doesn't seem to be ready or to posses the know-how (or will from a certain stratum of its employees) in order to do it.

    2. I think Sarajevo is the worst performing airport in Ex-Yu. The airport charges are extreme. The airport really should be an LCC base. When Sarajevo is compared to Skopje, it is easy to see how behind SJJ really is.

      Using airports as a means of revenue is a completely wrong way of thinking. The economic benefits of greater airline activity greatly overshadow the losses in revenue from airports.

      Delete
    3. @SM: I wasnt referring to the airport mgmt, but just the airport.

      @ Aleksandar: why worst performing? I agree its underperforming having in mind Sarajevo´s size and potential, but I dont think its worst performing, it took over Podgorica last year, and its aiming at Tivat now. And if Wizz flew to Sarajevo instead of Tuzla it would catch up with Skopje as well :)

  10. When we see how Serbian CAA protect its national carrier in any way and in spite heavy pressure from Turk CAA, I am proud to have such reply from one of ex-YU countries. BH Airlines is destroyed (not yet finally) by the BH ''open'' policy and very bad company leadership in last 5 years. This is specially connected to BH connections with giant Turkish Airlines who did all to push BH Air deeper in shit hole and to overtake the passengers . Someone should call them for responsibility but noone has no balls within the institutions.

    1. True. Turkish has more passengers from SJJ then B&H. They are operating three daily flights and sending A321 very often. When Serbia managed to get JU back to Ataturk I remember B&H said they needed the same thing to happen, for the bilateral with Turkey to be respected.

      Delete
  11. It is really a difficult situation for B&H. The problem is you can't sell the airline anymore. It's market share is dismal, it has two planes that will probably get repossessed by the end of the month and you have almost 100 employees. I don't blame them. They are the victims of a bad government. The only thing B&H could actually sell is its AOC and IATA code.

  12. Shocking figures for BH. Don't know what's worse - the quarterly result, the annual loss or the plane debt.

    Sarajevo Airport is a whole different story. Well done and keep up the great work.

  13. There's no difference to BH Air then to Montenegro Airlines and Aviogenex. Just bad management in the company and even worse management from the owners not to have done something about the situation years ago. There's always a price to pay for doing the work that needs to be done....

    13. Why would we "ucutati"? Who are you to say that, everybody is allowed to say whatever they want as long as it is not racist, nationalistic and so on!! If those results are indeed true, that is great! This also means that Star Alliance and the rest of the companies in BEG are recording bad results, right?

      Wow, first time to see one of those on an A319. Wonder how'll that affect the aerodynamis and the economics of the aircraft ;) Thanks for the photos!

    15. That dome looks quite huge. This is the only other pic of a narrow-body with a Wi-Fi i was able to find, notice it isn't located at the exactly same place:

    17. BEG growth should stabilize around 5-10% while Air Serbia's growth should continue in the ~15-20% on average for the coming two years. That is of course in the current network configuration and without any expansion. Lets not forget that in only two years from now Air Serbia should start receiving 10 A320 and i hardly see where they're gonna send them to. It is a matter of survival for Air Serbia to open a number of eastern and long-haul destinations in the coming future since the current network is simply unviable from the point of view of profitability. The European market is saturated and except for the business class offer ASL has little to reap from most of it. Air Serbia needs to place itself in the Eastern markets what Aegean has been successfully doing since its merger with Olympic, what shouldn't be too difficult with the right schedules and given Aegean's crappy product, yet Air Serbia seems to be totally ignoring those markets that should be key to its survival, instead of relying on a network that we could call 'glorified Jat'. Needless to say that if TK stopped its expansion half-way today they would already be bankrupt. You need to reach a critical mass and scale before getting profitable what requires investments and Air Serbia doesn't seem to be ready or to posses the know-how (or will from a certain stratum of its employees) in order to do it.

    20. Like that song says "its all about the money honey". Im pretty sure that employees would not mind the company being profitable (like in any other company). The ambition is big, but is there ALLthe money neccessary to back it up? I personally hope so.

  18. What I can say is that I do not agree with any comparing BH Airlines and Sarajevo airport , as they are completely different interests . BHA is in the interest to work as many flights and to transport as many passengers while Sarajevo airport wants to attract as many companies and their earnings. I agree with the comment that the state (Federation ) to blame for the events in the BHA . If the management is incompetent , they had to remove but also protect the company from unfair competition and plunder as he did to Turkish Airlines . Shame on you ! It is only important that they dominate the market and take absolutely everything . Once again , shame on them ! 7 days in Antalya free , our politicians and decision-makers and to asses whether the Turks .
    Special stories are airport taxes that German Wings does not pay for years , so how is it possible ??? Who are they that they are given such a privilege ?

    Has anyone asked how damaged the budget because of non-payment of taxes ? ! ? And who authorized this program ? Do they know that because of the same stuff director Belgrade airport got 5 years in prison . ( help Wizz Air )

    One is when a subsidy is to open new destinations , but the line for Cologne and Stuttgart existed before the arrival of German Wings in Sarajevo . Someone is here took a thick steam , perhaps even one orthopedist from Herzegovina .

  19. Postovani,
    u cemu je problem sto je otkazan danasnji let za Cirih. Navedeni let JA306/7 planski je otkazan prije sedam dana a iz razloga da bi se mogao odraditi treci u nizu cartera za Lamezia Terme u Italiji. Nismo mogli dozvoliti da nam niz od tri leta (za novog klijenta) propadne zbog jednog redovnog leta koji je u trnutku otkazivanja bio na granici rentabilnosti. Prema standardima prihvata i otpreme putnika u ovakvim situacijama svi putnici sa otkazanog redovnog leta su zbrinuti i prebaceni na druge kompanije i stigli su na odrediste. BH Airlines je uzimajuci u obzir sve troskove prebacivanja putnika na druge kompanije i ostavljajuci avion na nocenju u Mostaru 05/06MAY necu reci zaradio ali je znatno ustedio na operativnim troskovima. Prva cetvrtina planiranih letova za Italiju je odradjena i nadamo se da ce i ostali letovi biti odradjeni na visokom profesionalnom nivou koji smo zacrtali za ovu godinu. Nadamo se da nas nepredvidjene situacije nece omesti u ovome. Takodjer, hocu da naglasim jako dobru saradnju sa aerodromom Mostar koji je profesionalno i uz svu potrebnu pomoc prihvatio i otpremio sve nase dosadasnje letove. Jako mi je zao sto se ovakvi natpisi i spekulacije provode po medijima i portalima bez da se cuje i druga strana ali bice valjda vremena. Srdacan pozdrav, Dervisevic (Anonymous)

  20. OT: Jat Memories just published on fb that JU will be getting new ATR72. Supposedly it is Czech Airlines ATR72-500 currently registered F-GRPK, and it should become YU-ALV...

    Is this just a rumor, does someone have any info?

    1. It actually belongs to Air Corsica. The aircraft is 'only' 9 years old, that'll be the youngest Atr in the fleet i guess.

  21. How long does it take to complete a D check on the ATR72 ? Also does anyone have information on how long ASL will lease the new ATR? I believe that the other 2 ATR 72-500 are leased till 2017.
