Swiss Airbus 320 HB-IJF on todays flight Zurich-SarajevoDon’t be surprised if you see Turkish Airlines wide body aircraft operating flights between Istanbul and Sarajevo this summer. With beginning of summer schedule Sarajevo International Airport is seeing increase in usage of larger aircraft serving the airport. Turkish Airlines is sending Airbus 321 almost daily on one of its three daily flights from Istanbul. On some days all three flights are operated with Airbus 321 (largest narrow body aircraft in airlines fleet with seating capacity up to 194 passengers). Austrian Airlines is another airline using larger aircraft this summer. In the past years most of the flights were operated once daily with Airbus 319 and once daily with Fokker 100. As of beginning of summer timetable Austrian Airlines is operating twice daily flights from Vienna with Airbus 320 featuring 168 seats and on some days Airbus 321 with 200 seats. Lufthansa is using Airbus 320 on its flights from Munich and some days Airbus 321. Today’s flight from Zurich with Swiss International Airlines was operated with Airbus 320 which has almost double the capacity of the scheduled Avro RJ. This summer Air Serbia is using ATR-72 with 66 seats instead of much larger Airbus 319. Last summer season Air Serbia was operating mix of ATR-72, Boeing 737-300 and Airbus 319 on flights from Belgrade. Main reason for Air Serbia not using larger aircraft is shortage in fleet during busy summer season for the airline. Pegasus, Norwegian and Flydubai all fly to Sarajevo with Boeing 737-800 with 189 seats. Germanwings is using Airbus 319 with 144 seats and as of this year for the first time on some days Germanwings is using Airbus 320 on flights to Stuttgart and Cologne. With usage of larger aircraft Sarajevo International Airport is well on the way to reach 800.000 passengers this year.
I hope LX will also upgrade planned Q 400 on GVA route...
