Bosnia and Herzegovina Indirect Taxation Authority has dedicated two airports in Bosnia and Herzegovina to carry out air transport of fresh meats: Sarajevo International Airport and Banja Luka International Airport.
Banja Luka airport will have huge benefit from cargo flights to Istanbul since airport has very limited passenger air traffic with one daily flight to Belgrade on board of Air Serbia ATR-72 with 66 seats. Load factor on flights to Belgrade is around 50%. Four weekly flights from Banja Luka to Zurich with B&H Airlines are uncertain due to financial state of B&H Airlines. Banja Luka airport depends on government subsidies to stay in business.
