✈Tuzla-London Luton YTD statistics

During January-October period, a total of 20.708 passengers traveled on Wizz Air flights between Tuzla and London Luton Airport. The airline operated a total of 152 flights between two cities, with an average cabin load factor of 75,00%. Wizz Air has discontinued this route on 28.10.2017, after operating flights for one year only. The airline did not issue official statement on flight cancellation but most likely due to the visa requirements for Bosnia and Herzegovina citizens and long and costly process of obtaining visa to enter United Kingdom the interest for the flights wasn’t substantial for Wizz Air to continue to operate the flights. This route was the only one connecting Bosnia and Herzegovina and United Kingdom. In March of 2007 British Airways started flights from London Gatwick airport to Sarajevo. Flights were operated three times per week with Boeing 737-400 aircraft, but flights were short lived and stopped in October of the same year due to high fuel prices and high operating expenses stated by British Airways.
