Tuzla International Airport is recording record number of passengers using the airport, with new flights by Wizz Air introduced last week of the March. Wizz Air has position itself as the Bosnian “domestic” air carrier offering the most destinations and seats than any other airline serving Bosnia and Herzegovina. Wizz Air has a base at Tuzla International Airport with two Airbus 320 aircraft stationed at the airport. Four years ago, Wizz Air entered Bosnian market with only two destination: Malmo and Basel. Malmo-Tuzla flights started on 31.05.2013. with two weekly flights. Flights to Basel followed on June 15. 2013.

Ever since Wizz Air has continued to expand its network and offer more destinations and seats from Tuzla making it very popular destination in Wizz Air network. Currently Wizz Air is serving 16 destinations from Tuzla and one destination from Sarajevo. This year Wizz Air is offering around 650.000 seats on its flights to and from two Bosnian airports. Next year we can expect destination network from Sarajevo to grow, while Tuzla could see more weekly flights on current destinations. Most popular destination from Tuzla is Malmo in Sweden. Currently flights to the Swedish city are offered at four times per week, from next month the number of weekly flights will grow to five weekly.
