The Government of Herzegovina-Neretva County, at a session held on Friday in Mostar, gave its consent to subsidize Eurowings flights to Mostar International Airport. In the budget for 2018, the Government secured 500.000 KM (255.000 Euros) for this purpose, and has pledged to provide funds for subsidizing the expenditures in the budgets for the period from 2019 to 2023.
“Considering that Mostar International Airport provides general services of economic interest, the contribution to better mobility of citizens becomes visible. Connecting Mostar and the Herzegovina-Neretva County, with wider region, seeks to create the best possible conditions for a stronger economic development. This will be done particularly through better air transport links, as well as the availability/increase of tourist demand in Herzegovina-Neretva destinations. “, said Nevenko Herceg, the Prime Minister of the County.
