B&H Airlines opens Tuzla International Airport

Tuzla International Airport, located in North Eastern Bosnia and Herzegovina (the third largest city in the country) has been open for civilian use as up until now it was only a military air base. The airport was open when a promotional BH Airlines flights took off from Sarajevo to Tuzla early yesterday. More than 1.5 million convertible marks (KM) have been invested into the airport. The airport becomes the fourth international airport in the country after Sarajevo, Banja Luka and Mostar. The biggest problem authorities will face will be how to attract airlines to the town and keep the airport profitable. Sarajevo itself has only 10 scheduled airlines operating, Banja Luka 3 and Mostar 1.
