PHOTOS: FlyBosnia inaugurates London service

NEWS FLASH


FlyBosnia has launched its first European service from Sarajevo with the airline linking Bosnia and Herzegovina’s capital with London Luton Airport three times per week. Among passengers on the inaugural flight were FlyBosnia CEO, Tarik Bilalbegović, and the Ambassador of the United Kingdom to Bosnia and Herzegovina, Matthew Field. Mr Field noted the resumption of flights between Sarajevo and London was a “great step for all” and stressed the development would further strengthen ties between the two countries. Mr Bilalbegović said, “FlyBosnia has ambitious plans for expansion and London is a key destination for us as our first European destination. Other European cities will follow closely behind”. Luton Airport’s Chief Commercial Officer, Jonathan Pollard, added, “We are delighted FlyBosnia has chosen London Luton Airport as its UK base. This is the first and only direct flight to Sarajevo to operate from any UK airport in over a decade, so we are delighted to be part of this success”.

  3. Glad to hear that BiH is doing extremely well.
    First TZL, then SJJ and now it's apparently BNX.
    FR might consider STN or SEN.
    OMO is next!

    1. Does anybody know the load factor of these flights to London-Luton airport? Thanks. I am just curious, since i strongly believe it will not survive.

  4. What is this Charlestown flight service by FlyBosnia on the SJJ departure board?

    And where is that - according to Google on St Kitts and Nevis... maybe operated by a 787...

    1. It's somewhere in the US where the plane was delivered from. Maybe maintenance?

    2. Ok I found it. They operated a one off flight to Ireland West Airport (Knock Airport) via Shannon. There is a small village next to Knock Airport called Charlestown. But I never heard anyone name the airport after that village. The flight was probably a charter for a tour operator I assume.
