Eurowings has decided to cancel planed service from Dusseldorf to Sarajevo. Flights were scheduled to begin on November 2, with two weekly rotations between two cities. In the past Eurowings failed to secure enough passengers to keep Berlin-Sarajevo flights profitable. Flights from Berlin operated by the airline for nine months only. At this moment is hard to say what is the main reason for canceling the flights, since tickets were on sale for less than a month. It is rumored that Eurowings will launch flights to Mostar Airport instead, since the local government will subsidize the flights. Earlier this month Mostar Airport has announced beginning of flights to Germany by the end of October. Eurowings operates year-round flights to Sarajevo from Cologne and Stuttgart. Cologne is operated three times per week (four weekly in summer) while Stuttgart is operated only once per week (twice weekly in summer). Main competitor to Eurowings on Bosnian market is Wizz Air. Wizz Air is flying from Tuzla to seven destinations in Germany. Most popular German route from Tuzla is Dortmund with 49.319 passengers in 2016, followed by Frankfurt Hahn and Memmingen. Since December of last year Wizz Air added flights from Tuzla to: Berlin, Cologne, Friedrichshafen and Nuremberg.
