B&H to commence Pescara serviceMostar Airport has announced it is finalising an agreement with B&H Airlines to commence seasonal summer charters from the city to Pescara in Italy. Mostar Airport’s managment is visiting Pescara in order to finalise the flight details. The project is being propped by a local tour operator. This is welcomed news for the airport as it has been struggling to attract airlines for years. If all goes to plan flights could commence next month, local media reports. In April, Mostar handled 2.193 passengers thanks to charter flights from Italy and Lebanon. It is believed Mostar Airport could attract airlines offering flights to religious pilgrims visiting the nearby Medjugorje.
On the other hand, Tuzla is anticipating the start of Air Arabia’s Dubai service, which commences on July 1. The airport handled only 54 passengers last month. Meanwhile, Bosnia and Herzegovina’s second largest city, Banja Luka, saw 719 passengers pass through its doors. Finally in April, Sarajevo handled 49.489 passengers. In total, Bosnia and Herzegovina’s four airports handled 52.455 passengers in April.
