By signing this new contract, FlyBosnia further contributes to the development of Bosnia and Herzegovina tourism and economy. The company currently operates two Airbus 319 aircraft and expects a third Airbus 319 aircraft to join the fleet in early 2020. Due to the limited capacity of Sarajevo Airport, FlyBosnia is currently considering options to establish a base for a third aircraft in Mostar, Banja Luka or Tuzla.

✈FLYBOSNIA schedules Sarajevo-London flights

From September 24, FLYBOSNIA will connect Sarajevo with London Luton Airport with three flights per week with plans to increase it to a daily flight / seven times a week over the next 12 months. The flights will be operated by an Airbus A319-112 aircraft, providing seating for 150 passengers. Tickets can be purchased through FlyBosnia offical website starting today. Promotional tickets starting from 11 Euros.

"I had a productive conversation with FLYBOSNIA CEO Mr. Tarik Bilalbegovic. We talked about reestablishing flights between Bosnia and Herzegovina and the United Kingdom. It will be good for tourism, business and strengthening ties between the two countries, "said British Ambassador to Bosnia and Herzegovina Mr. Matthew Field. Sarajevo is the undiscovered tourist gem of Europe, a business bridge between East and West, and with a dramatic 23% + annual growth in the tourism sector, which is directly creating jobs in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

"The great news is connecting Sarajevo and London, especially since it is done by a domestic company. It is extremely important for Sarajevo to build relationships and connections with true metropolises. I expect that this move will have direct positive economic consequences for Sarajevo and Bosnia and Herzegovina. I congratulate the management and wish them success,” said Sarajevo Mayor Mr. Abdulah Skaka.

FLYBOSNIA is currently flying to Riyadh, Jeddah, Bahrain, and Kuwait while regular flights to Rome and Paris are expected to open in the next 3 months. FLYBOSNIA has already transported 20.000 passengers and have plans for the next year for that number to be around 100.000 passengers, directly producing an economic boost to economic development through consumption and related VAT.

FLYBOSNIA flight crew are mostly made up out of Bosnian nationals with some of them returning to work in their home country, since FLYBOSNIA is one of the main economic drivers of domestic airline development. After 12 years, since British Airways has canceled its flight from London to Sarajevo, FLYBOSNIA, a young Bosnian company, is finally connecting Sarajevo to global financial and tourism centers of the world, such as London, Rome, and Paris.
