Eurowings to launch Mostar service

NEWS FLASH


Eurowings will commence flights from Cologne to Mostar next summer season after the city won a public vote on Facebook to select the carrier's newest destination. It beat Trapani in Italy and Shannon in Ireland to be included in the low cost airline's destination network next year. Eurowings is expected to announce details of the new service shortly. Within Bosnia and Herzegovina, Eurowings currently maintains flights to Sarajevo from Stuttgart and Cologne.

  1. Congrats OMO!

    If Mr Purger reads this: could you give a brief evaluation why OU has not been flying to OMO for more than a decade?

    I mean they could have connected Germany and Mostar via Zagreb, which I think could have worked, especially if you consider the diaspora from Herzegovina not only in Germany but in Zagreb also. At least when Germany Herzegovina is concerned Eurowings will do it now. Really cannot get the OU management... no decent route planning whatsoever... plonkers.

      I just wrote about that today (sorry it is on Croatian, hope you will understand):

      Već desetljeće pišem da je notorni nonsens da se ne uvede Mostar. Svi razlozi za to postoje:

      - dijaspora (Hercegovci u Zagrebu i Slavoniji, ali i preko Zagreba za Njemačku, Švicarsku, Austriju, Skandinaviju...)

      - obiteljska povezanost

      - sva moguća najbliža suradnja (sveučilišta, sport, kultura, znanost, obrazovanje, arhiva, vojna suradnja, politička, diplomatska, vjerska, estradna, sportska, novinarska, trgovačka, gospodarstvena...)
      - čak postoje i iste stranke, ispostave novinskih kuća (Večernji), iste udruge
      - profesori iz Zagreba predaju u Mostaru, klinci se školuju u Zagrebu, niz hercegovskih businessmena su vlasnici tvrtki u Hrvatskoj i hrvatskih firmi koje imaju predstavništva u Hercegovini

      - turizam

      - vjerski turizam i konekcije preko Zagreba za hodočasnike u Međugorje
      cargo

      - postoje fondovi Hrvatske za pomoć Hrvatima u BiH koji su vrlo veliki

      - postoji volja lokalne zajednice za sufinanciranje te linije (ali ne sa traženih, nerealnih i enormnih milijuna EUR)

      Jednostavno sva logika govori da ova linija ima ogromne potencijale. I svejedno ništa! Što se čeka da uleti Eurowings, Austrian, Air Serbia, Turkish, Wizz, pa da linija izgubi svoje prednosti i smanje se potencijali.

    2. Wasn't there a rumor about ZAG-OMO service operated by Tradeair J32?

    3. Understood! So it IS kind of an missed opportunity there for OU. Really sad... thx for the answer! Convincing as usual!

  4. Wonderful...except for that no passengers live there :)
    They should have done it from some hub which is better connected with Scandinavia, because it's there where most potential passengers are.
    Optimal solution would be Munich, because from there they could reach both the passengers living in southern Germany, and interconnect with LH to Scandinavia.
    And thereby they would cover 3/4 of all expats from the city - which is, like half of the city's population :)
