Sarajevo numbers nose dive

Sarajevo numbers nose dive

Sarajevo Airport has seen a major passenger plunge in July. Bosnia and Herzegovina’s busiest airport welcomed only 69.346 passengers, a decrease of 14.4% compared to the same month last year when it handled 81.042 passengers. It is the third consecutive month that the airport has seen its numbers plummet. The figures have been affected by B&H Airlines’ cut in operations. The Bosnian national carrier handled only 29.459 passengers in the first half of the year, a 54.9% plunge on 2011.

Recently, rumours have been circulating that the Bosnian government is planning to introduce a new passenger tax at Sarajevo Airport which would further boost ticket prices. However, the Bosnian Civil Aviation Directorate has told EX-YU aviation news that they are unaware of any proposal for the introduction of new taxes. Currently, passengers have to fork out 28 euros for taxes at Sarajevo Airport which, many believe, is why low cost airlines have mostly stayed away from the Bosnian capital.

However, there is some good news as well. The charter company Gryphon Airlines has now introduced daily flights between Kuwait City and Sarajevo. Flights are operating with a Boeing 767. This winter, Sarajevo will be served by eight airlines with scheduled flights. The low cost Niki, which was considering launching services from Vienna, has decided against the move.

Banja Luka Airport to stay open until 2014

After months of uncertainty, Banja Luka Airport’s international operating license has been extended until August 20, 2014, effectively keeping the airport open for at lest another two years. The decision came after the entity government approved a 1.7 million euro cash injection for the airport in order for it to maintain its international operating license. The money will be used to finance shortcomings at the airport, which include the lengthening of taxiways, purchase of new security equipment and the installation of a new security fence.

The airport’s aim will now be to attract much needed customers. Banja Luka continues to be served by four weekly B&H Airlines flights to Zurich. The Bosnian national carrier plans to maintain the four weekly service during the 2012/13 winter season. The airport hopes to begin negotiations with Austrian over the potential launch of flights to Vienna next year. Today, the airport is far from its glory days of the late 1990s when it had scheduled services not only to Vienna but also to Belgrade, Athens, Tivat and Salzburg. It was once served by the likes of Austrian Airlines, Montenegro Airlines and Air Srpska.

Banja Luka has seen its passenger numbers significantly decline throughout 2012. In July the airport welcomed only 589 passengers, down 58% on the same month last year. As a result, Banja Luka Airport was the fourth busiest airport in the country, being surpassed by Tuzla which, unlike Banja Luka, has no scheduled traffic. Overall, the airport handled 3.169 passengers in the first seven months of the year, down 33.5% on 2011.

Passenger plunge for B&H Airlines

The national carrier of Bosnia and Herzegovina, B&H Airlines, handled only 29.459 passengers in the first half of the year, a 54.9% plunge on 2011. The figures come as a result of a major decrease in flights as well as Turkish Airlines’ exit from its partnership with the airline. The average cabin load factor stood at 66%. B&H currently operates flights to only four cities from Sarajevo (Istanbul, Zurich, Copenhagen and Banja Luka) with a single ATR72. The Bosnian carrier had its busiest year back in 2010 when it welcomed 138.241 passengers onboard. Unless there are major developments in the following months, B&H risks having one of its worst years on record, passenger wise. Continue Reading

Banja Luka Airport saved

The entity government of Republika Srpska in Bosnia and Herzegovina has approved a 1.7 million euro cash injection for Banja Luka Airport in order for it to maintain its international operating license. The money will be used to finance shortcomings at the airport, which include the lengthening of taxiways, purchase of new security equipment and the installation of a new security fence. The airport has only a month to carry out the necessary work before an international monitoring body decides whether the airport is fit to continue serving commercial flights.

It is not the first time the airport has been given additional funds on top of the allocated annual budget of nearly half a million euros. Banja Luka Airport welcomed 2.580 passengers in the first half of the year, down 27.5% on 2011. The airport is served by four weekly B&H Airlines flights from Sarajevo, which continue on to Zurich.

Besplatan parking na Aerodromu Sarajevo

Enis Bešlagić prvi: Besplatan parking na Aerodromu Sarajevo, samo za vozače Mercedesa

 

AUTOline d.o.o., glavni zastupnik Daimlera AG u u BiH, pripremio je još jednu atraktivnu pogodnost u okviru svog programa brige o kupcima u Bosni i Herce
govini. U saradnji s Aerodromom Sarajevo, za sve vozače Mercedes-Benz automobila rezervisana su besplatna parking mjesta, čime se još jednom potvrđuje da je usmjerenost ka kupcima jedan od temelja poslovanja marke Mercedes-Benz. Pozitivno iskustvo komforne, ugodne i sigurne vožnje u Mercedesu se na ovaj način nastavlja i prilikom potrage za parking mjestom na najprometnijem bosanskohercegovačkom aerodromu.

Zbog povećanog prometa na sarajevskom aerodromu broj parking mjesta često je nedovoljan, što uz trenutne visoke temperature doprinosi dodatnim frustracijama i nervozi vozača. Mercedes-Benz je stoga svojim kupcima obezbijedio posebnu pogodnost, a ujedno i nagradu za njihovu vjernost – besplatno parking mjesto na aerodromu. Tabla na ulazu u parking, kao i putokaz, usmjerit će vozače Mercedesa na prostor s 5 obilježenih parking mjesta za njihove ljubimce. Tako će ugodno moći kupiti aviokarte, dočekati poslovnog partnera ili voljenu osobu, te obaviti neku drugu obavezu na aerodromu uz obezbijeđeno parking mjesto i tri besplatna sata parkiranja.
