✈TUI fly Belgium and Atlas Global end Sarajevo service

TUI fly Belgium and Atlas Global Airlines have cancelled Sarajevo service. Both airlines introduced flights to Sarajevo in the first half of 2017, TUI fly Belgium started its two-weekly service from Brussels Charleroi Airport on March 26, ending flights on October 30. Flights were operated as summer seasonal but after only one season TUI fly decided to cancel the flights due to poor loads.

Atlas Global Airlines started flights from its hub at Istanbul Ataturk Airport to Sarajevo on June 23 with four weekly flights, flights were scheduled as year-round, but after only four months the airline suspended its service saying it will resume flights at the beginning of April as summer seasonal. Yesterday we received confirmation from Atlas Global Airlines saying that airline will not return to Sarajevo and all flights have been canceled. Intense competition from Turkish and Pegasus Airlines have forced Atlas Global to cancel Sarajevo service. During summer season Turkish Airlines is maintaining 18 weekly flights between Istanbul Ataturk Airport and Sarajevo, while Pegasus Airlines maintains 9 weekly flights between Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen Airport and Sarajevo.
