✈Mostar International Airport company profile and presentation!


There are many reasons for flying to the City of Mostar and its region, primarily the variety of tourist offers and the economy development. The City of Mostar is one of the largest urban tourist destinations in Bosnia and Herzegovina and a university city. The Marian shrine of Međugorje, visited by millions of tourists from around the world, it’s in the immediate vicinity of Mostar, only 30 km away. The second reason for arriving to Mostar by plane is economic. Mostar, as well as the area of central Herzegovina, has significant resources needed for economic development. The third reason is in the fact that, especially in the summer months, nearby airports in Croatia (Split is 168 km away, Dubrovnik 146 km) have problems with available capacities. Mostar Airport could be a quality alternative to such airlines given that it is not "slot" coordinated, offering airport services at competitive prices, which is particularly suitable for low-cost airlines.

About Mostar International Airport

Mostar Airport was opened for civilian air traffic in 1965, being primarily used for domestic flights. In 1984 Mostar Airport was declared an alternative for the Sarajevo International Airport during the 1984 Winter Olympic Games, thus acquiring the status of an international airport. Thanks to its geographic location and proximity of the Marian shrine of Međugorje, there is a considerable interest in operating many charter flights to Mostar Airport. Mostar Airport is currently at the beginning of a new development period characterized by significant investment of the European Union in the modernization of its facilities and purchase of equipment for handling aircraft and passengers. Having reached high standards of airport facilities and staff qualification, it is safe to say that Mostar Airport will be a significant economic entity for the development of the entire Herzegovina region.
An adequate infrastructure and professional staff of Mostar Airport make sure that the traffic of aircraft, passengers, baggage and cargo is secure, at the highest level and according to ICAO standards at all the times. The airport is equipped to handle all aircraft including up to ICAO "C" category.
