Wizz to launch "several destinations" from Sarajevo

NEWS FLASH


Low cost carrier Wizz Air will expand services from Bosnia and Herzegovina with the launch of "several European destinations" from Sarajevo this year, the Foreign Investment Promotion Agency of Bosnia and Herzegovina said yesterday. According to the Hungarian Ambassador to Bosnia, Jozsef Negyesi, Wizz Air's first route out of Sarajevo will be Budapest. The service will be subsidised by the Hungarian government. The budget carrier previously noted, "After Tuzla, which continues to be our main base in Bosnia and Herzegovina, we intend on establishing flights from Sarajevo, which we consider a very important destination. Furthermore, we are also interested in investing in Sarajevo Airport". Flights are expected to begin during the 2016/17 winter season.

    3. Ryanair has an Irish AOC. Ireland is not in UK, so Brexit will have no effect on their operations except to/from UK.

      Ryanair has been in Bulgaria, Romania, Serbia since 2006?

  2. These politicians in Bosnia will never learn. What they say or 'announce' is irrelevant.
