Qatar Airways has postponed the launch of its service between Doha and Sarajevo for a second time. The airline now plans to commence operations on the route in 2017. Initially, flights were to begin on September 7 but were later pushed back to November 2. As of last week, ticket sales have been suspended. In a statement to EX-YU Aviation News, Qatar Airways said, "Unfortunately the start of service will be delayed until 2017 due to a delay in aircraft deliveries that we have on order. We remain committed to this route and will launch it as soon as possible". A new launch date is yet to be set. Earlier, Qatar Airways also delayed the introduction of its Skopje service, initially planned for October 2, until 2017.
