Sarajevo Airport welcomes millionth passenger

NEWS FLASH


Sarajevo Airport handled its millionth passenger today, marking the first time it has managed to reach such a milestone in a single year. The millionth traveller was bound for Istanbul on a Turkish Airlines flight. Sarajevo Airport recently commenced the multi million euro expansion of its terminal building, which will enable it to handle two million passengers per year upon its completion. Sarajevo Airport's numbers are expected to continue growing in the coming years. Aegean Airlines will commence seasonal flights from Athens to Sarajevo on June 13 of next year, while talks are taking place with several other carriers as well. "We expect developments in the opening of new routes. We are in talks with several airlines over flights to Riyadh and Bahrain, and we have also held discussions concerning services to Skopje, however, airlines remain apprehensive about this route. We are working hard behind the scenes. When the talks are finalised it will be easy to announce and promote new routes", General Manager Armin Kajmaković said. Local carrier FlyBosna is expected to commence operations from Sarajevo next year as well.

  3. How pathetic that they are so far behind the sort of traffic a city of that size should be serving, all because of that ridiculous extra "tax" that they impose. Yugoslav dinosaurs living in the 1980s...
