✈Sarajevo Airport strong start for summer

Airlines lineup at Sarajevo Int. Airport
With the beginning of Summer schedule of flights (which have started on March 31), Sarajevo Airport is already seeing stronger demand when compared to same period of the last year. Airlines are using larger aircraft on its flights to Sarajevo (Adria Airways is using A319 instead of CRJ-700/900, Austrian Airlines is using Airbus 320 and much larger 321, Swiss is using A220-300 with capacity to accommodate 145 passengers, and on some days A320, Next week Qatar Airways is using A321). For the first 11 days of the month airport serviced a total of 152 arriving and 152 departing commercial flights (total 304 commercial passengers flights). During the first 11 days of the month total number of seats offered on both arrivals and departures was 44.354. According to airlines timetable total of 120.000 seats are offered during this month to/from Sarajevo, but with increased demand airlines are adjusting to larger aircraft, this will add more seats then planed 120.000. My projection: Sarajevo Airport will handle 90.000 passengers in April.
Sarajevo Airport flight timetable for the week of April 11-18


Flightradar24  is showing FlyBosnia flights to: Riyadh (RUH), Rome (FCO), Moscow (SVO), Frankfurt (FRA) and London (LGW) but no flights are scheduled or being sold on the airlines website. The airline is very active on social media but no announcements of any sort about the possible launch date and destinations. If they were counting on Bosnian diaspora as they were saying then this summer for them is lost. For Bosnian family living in USA, Canada, Australia or even Europe, It takes months for family to arrange their vacation with their employers, airline tickets, hotels, rent a cars etc… Hopefully FlyBosnia won’t be yet another filed airline project.
