Eurowings schedules new Mostar routes

NEWS FLASH


Eurowings has officially unveiled its plans to launch services to Mostar at a press conference held in the city this afternoon. As previously reported, the airline will introduce flights from Dusseldorf and Stuttgart to its second point in Bosnia and Herzegovina following Sarajevo. Both routes will be maintained twice per week starting May 16, 2018, with services from Dusseldorf operating on Wednesdays and Sundays morning, and from Stuttgart on Wednesdays afternoons and Saturdays mornings. The development comes after Lufthansa's low cost subsidiary, Mostar Airport's management, representatives from the Bosnia and Herzegovina Directorate of Civil Aviation and local tour operators began talks over the introduction of flights from Stuttgart in January this year. Up until now Mostar has struggled to attract scheduled flights but sees a significant number of charter traffic throughout the year, carrying religious pilgrims visiting the nearby Medjugorje sight. However, its passenger numbers have been in decline for almost two years. This trend is expected to be overturned next summer. The new flights will generate an additional 45 new jobs in Mostar.

    1. The exact flight times have not been completely finalised yet, as outlined by the airline's representatives in Mostar today. As soon as they are, and the flights are bookable, they will be added.
