    It seems that Air Cairo is expanding in the region quite fast. They currently only have Belgrade flights but now they are planning Nis and Banja Luka flights.

      Covid pandemic and low entry restrictions have created very high demand for Egypt, especially from Serbia that had charters + AirCairo, plus tour packages there are a good value for money. If the demand stays, 2022 season will be big success in the region for Air Cairo

    Banja Luka already had intercontinental charter flights to Antalya, Turkey. Africa would be the third continent served from BNX after Europe and Asia.

  6. Hurghada flights should have been started long time ago. There are a lot of interest in the region. For pozdrav iz Rijeke: even your capital Zagreb have no flights to Tokyo, LA or Rio. Sarcasm can not help to establish those intercontinental flights from Zagreb.

    1. Dear Sasa,
      In my head, Banja Luka is as much "my' as Zagreb is" yours". I would have written absolutely the same if the headline was :"Zagreb to get intercontinental flights to Algiers". And people with mindset as yours is, from all over ex yu, brought us all to where we are, at the bottom of the bottom.
