Air Serbia uspostavila letove od Beograda do Banja Luke

Promotivnim letom, koji je obavljen 1. decembra, srpski nacionalni avioprevoznik Air Serbia je zvanično pokrenuo letove između Beograda i Banja Luke.

Letovi se obavljaju avionom tipa ATR72 svakog dana sa polaskom u 14:00 iz Beograda i povratkom u 15:25 iz Banja Luke. Let traje oko 55 minuta, a cena povratne karte sa svim uračunatim taksama i servisom za izdavanje je od 79 evra.

Vreme letova je usklađeno sa postojećim redom letenja Air Serbije što putnicima omogućuje da, ukoliko ne ostaju u Beogradu, svoje putovanje nastave nakon kraćeg zadržavanja na Aerodromu Nikola Tesla ka ključnim destinacijama u Evropi: Parizu, Amsterdamu, Pragu, Rimu, Milanu, Kopenhagenu, Stokholmu, Štutgartu, Diseldorfu, Berlinu, Cirihu i Moskvi.

Takođe, putnicima se nude i odlične konekcije ka dalekim interkontinentalnim destinacijama u Aziji, Australiji, Severnoj i Južnoj Americi, koje su im na raspolaganju kroz mrežu letova kod-šer partnera Etihad Airwaysa.

Od avgusta 2013, kada je najavljeno ponovno pokretanje ove linije, interesovanje putnika je bilo zadovoljavajuće te gledajući trenutne rezervacija kompanija Air Serbia smatra da će linija biti ekonomski isplativa.

Rekordan broj putnika na aerodromima u FBiH

Po podacima Federalnog ministarstva saobraćaja i komunikacija u čijoj su resornoj nadležnosti sva tri aerodroma u Federaciji BiH, aviosaobraćaj na međunarodnim aerodromima u augustu ove godine zabilježio je rekordan broj putnika u jednom mjesecu u historiji Federacije BiH.

“Ukupno je prevezeno 101.899 putnika što je u odnosu na august 2012. godine više za 26.116 putnika ili 25,63 posto. Na ovaj način po prvi puta je usluge aerodroma u FBiH u jednom mjesecu koristilo više od 100.000 putnika”, kazala je za Fenu portparol Federalnog ministarstva saobraćaja i komunikacija Amila Lačević.

U augustu ove godine na Sarajevskom aerodromu zabilježen je saobraćaj od 79.796 putnika, na Aerodromu Mostar 11.103 i Tuzlanskom 11.000 putnika.

Evidentan je trend povećanja broja putnika na aerodromima u FBiH u prvih osam mjeseci ove godine. Ukupno je prevezeno 525.913. putnika što je za 72.251 putnika ili 13,74 posto više nego u odnosu na isti period 2012. Continue Reading

Niža cijena goriva na Aerodromu u Banjoj Luci

Snižena cijena goriva na Međunarodnom aerodromu u Banjoj Luci olakšat će poslovanje i pregovore sa avioprijevoznicima koji saobraćaju ili to planiraju prema ovom aerodromu, rečeno je Srni u ovoj aviokompaniji.

Visoka cijena goriva zamrzla je pregovore sa aviokompanijom za jeftine letove Wizz Air, čije je sjedište u Mađarskoj, iako je banjalučki aerodrom prethodno zadovoljio sve tehničke i operativne zahtjeve.

Služba za odnose s javnošću Aerodroma Republike Srpske navodi da je u toku finalizacija sniženja cijene goriva na Međunarodnom aerodromu u Banjoj Luci i da se nakon toga očekuje nastavak pregovora sa mađarskim avioprijevoznikom.

Aerodrom u Banjoj Luci spada u red manjih aerodroma i zadovoljava sve vazduhoplovne standarde.

U tom smislu, kažu ovoj kompaniji, potrebna su velika sredstva za održavanje infrastrukture, te certifikovanje sredstava i kadrova, koja Aerodrom sa trenutnim prihodima ne može izdvojiti.

“Vlada Republike Srpske donijela je odluku o grantu za Aerodrome Republike Srpske – Međunarodni aerodrom Banja Luka u iznosu od 1.900.000 KM za 2013. godinu sa ciljem održavanja aerodroma”, podsjećaju u Službi za odnose s javnošću.

U ovoj službi napominju da je osnovna smjernica poslovanja banjalučkog aerodroma da ide u korak sa svjetskim vazduhoplovnim standardima kako bi bili obezbijeđeni uslovi za bezbjednu proceduru prihvata i otpreme aviona i putnika. To i jeste preduslov za saradnju sa avioprijevoznicima.

Početkom ove godine vođeni su razgovori sa predstavnicima grčkog avioprijevoznika Aegean Airlines, koji su se zainteresovali za eventualno uspostavljanje aviolinije sa Banjom Lukom.

Grčki avioprijevoznik bio je zainteresovan za eventualno uspostavljanje redovne aviolinije ka većem aviočvorištu u Grčkoj, kao što je Atina, sa mogućnošću transfera u destinacije širom svijeta.

Međunarodni aerodrom u Banjoj Luci poslije okvirnog istraživanja prikupljene podatke dostavio je Grcima i sada se očekuje odgovor grčkog avioprijevoznika i eventualni poziv za pregovore.

Na banjalučkom aerodromu sada saobraća aviolinija Banja Luka – Cirih – Banja Luka pet puta sedmično, prevoznik je BH Airlines sa kojim aerodrom ima odličnu saradnju, ističu u Službi za odnose s javnošću Aerodromi Republike Srpske.

Od 1. decembra srpski avioprijevoznik Air Serbia uvodi redovnu svakodnevnu avioliniju Beograd – Banja Luka – Beograd sa mogućnošću transfera u više od 30 destinacija. Banjalučki aerodrom planira da za narednu godinu planira uspostavljanje sezonskih čarter aviolinija.

Hoće li Aerodrom Banja Luka izgubiti međunarodnu licencu

Banjalučki Aerodrom dobio je još dva mjeseca roka da ispravi tehničke nedostatke da ne bi ostao bez međunarodne licence za rad.

Trenutni tehnički nedostaci na banjalučkom Aerodromu su evidentirani još ranije i trebalo je da se otklone do 20. juna, ali nije riješen hronični problem nedostatka sredstava s kojima se godinama suočava ova jedina zračna luka u RS-u.

Nadležni su ipak uspjeli „kupiti“ dodatno vrijeme i prolongirati izvršenje obaveza prema međunarodnim standardima u aviosaobraćaju do sredine augusta.

Početkom tog mjeseca očekuje se dolazak međunarodne kontrole i do tog roka u banjalučkom Aerodromu moraju uraditi sve ono što nisu za proteklu godinu, pa i više dana.

I dalje je jedan od najteže izvodljivih zadataka proširenje staze uz pistu, za dodatnih 70 metara, ali je teško izvodljiv budući da ta zemlja nije u njihovom vlasništvu, a za otkup nemaju sredstava bez nove intervencije iz entitetskog budžeta.

U nalazima inspekcije ukazano je i na potrebu da se dogradi, pomjeri i zamijeni dio zaštitne ograde, pojača sigurnost i kupe novi aparati.

Ministarstvo saobraćaja i veza je zahtjev Aerodroma dostavilo Savjetu za razvoj RS-a kako bi im odobrili 3,4 miliona maraka neophodnih sredstva za spomenute radove, ali vremena do dolaska nove inspekcije je sve manje.

Grant iz entitetskog budžeta za banjalučki Aerodrom na godišnjem nivou iznosi oko 900.000 maraka, a već se intereveniralo ranijih godina da ne bi izgubili međunarodnu dozvolu zbog moguće sudske blokade računa.

Aerodrom Banja Luka već odavno je u finansijskim problemima, umjesto prihoda projektuje gubitke, a jedina aktivna aviolinija je do Ciriha, koju održava BH Airlines.

Ministar saobraćaja i veza RS-a Nedeljko Čubrilović je ranije obećavao pomoć entitetske vlade da ne bi bila zatvorena jedina zračna luka u RS-u.

I on je priznao da je mnogo teže dobiti međunarodnu licencu nego produžavati rok njene važnosti na banjalučkom Aerodromu.

Za Aerodrom Banja Luka 600.000 KM, za Sky Srpsku 800.000 KM

Premijer Republike Srpske Aleksandar Džombić izjavio je danas da je ove godine Vlada RS izdvojila oko 600.000 KM za preduzeće “Aerodrom Banja Luka” i oko 800.000 KM za “Sky Srpsku”.

“Teška je finansijska situacija u preduzeću Aerodrom Banja Luka i tu definitivno treba tražiti neko trajno rješenje u smislu otvaranja letova. Opredijeljeni smo da radimo i pomognemo rukovodstvu ovog preduzeća, a od njih očekujemo potpuno razumijevanje kada je riječ o racionalizaciji određenih troškova”, rekao je Džombić novinarima.

On je podsjetio da je prije tri godine Vlada RS izdvojila oko tri miliona KM da bi bila izvršena dokapitalizacija preduzeća “Aerodrom Banja Luka” i sanirana pista.

Sindikalna organizacija preduzeća “Aerodrom Banja Luka” održala je 4. jula jednočasovni štrajk upozorenja zbog nepoštivanja Sporazuma o isplati potraživanja radnika i povećanja plata zaposlenih iz 2008. godine.

Banja Luka hopes for flights

After underperforming in 2012, Bosnia and Herzegovina’s third busiest airport, Banja Luka, is hoping to secure new flights to Vienna in the coming months. The airport is currently only served by B&H Airlines to Zurich. The airport’s management has written to Austrian Airlines, encouraging it to resume flights to the city. On Tuesday Nedeljko Čubrilović, the Minister for Transport in the entity government, met with the Austrian Ambassador to Bosnia and Herzegovina to discuss the potential of flights between Banja Luka and Vienna.

In 2012 Banja Luka welcomed only 6.424 passengers, a decrease of 23.2% on the year before. Throughout last year, the airport attempted to attract new customers. During the summer it proposed for Jat Airways to make a stop in Banja Luka on its flights to the Croatian coast, however, the airline declined. It once again attempted to lure Jat late last year by offering hefty subsidies for services to Belgrade and Vienna but to no avail. Furthermore, it was rejected by the small regional airline Di Air to launch charters from Tivat during the summer.

Late last year Banja Luka Airport also held talks with Wizz Air over potential flights from Malmo, although the outcome of the talks is still unknown. At the time, the acting CEO of the Airports of Republika Srpska company, Davorin Mihić, said, “If they are willing to launch year long flights we will put tickets on sale in January while the flights will launch in April”. In December 2012, the entity government decided to close down Sky Srpska, an airline planned to be based in Banja Luka. 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. In 2012, Banja Luka Airport handled fewer passengers than other comparable airports in the region such as Niš and Brač.

Banja Luka – Belgrade flights by December

Flights between Banja Luka and Belgrade are planned to commence by December 2012, the Prime Ministers of Serbia and the entity of Republika Srpska said after a meeting in Banja Luka yesterday. It is believed that Jat Airways will be offered up to four million euros to operate the service two to three times per week in the coming winter period with an ATR 72. The airline was supposed to launch flights between the two cities and operate services from Banja Luka to Vienna this summer season but cancelled such plans at the last minute due to a fleet shortage.

With Banja Luka Airport struggling with financial problems and a lack of passengers, the airport proposed for Jat to operate some of its seasonal flights to Pula, Dubrovnik and Split via Banja Luka earlier this year. The Serbian carrier rejected the offer. Jat Airways has operated flights to Banja Luka on and off for several years. Services were cancelled each time due to extremely poor loads. It remains to be seen whether the new route launch will materialise as Bosnia and Herzegovina is heading to the polls for local elections this Sunday and many promises are unlikely to be kept, as is often the case in politics.

Banja Luka Airport only recently secured the extension of its international operating license until 2014. In the first eight months of 2012 the airport handled only 3.857 passengers, down 32.4% compared to the same period last year. B&H Airlines remains its only customer. The national carrier plans to operate four weekly flights to Zurich via Banja Luka this winter season.

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.

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.

Last chance for Banja Luka Airport

Banja Luka Airport has been given a final lifeline before it loses its international operating license. The airport was ordered to fulfil several technical requirements by June 20 including the lengthening of taxiways, purchase of new security equipment and the installation of a new security fence in order to keep its license. However, none of these requirements have been met. The airport has now been given another two months by international monitors to do so. If it fails to adhere to international standards it will lose its license, effectively forcing the airport to close.

Banja Luka Airport has said it does not have the money to finance the needed upgrades. The airport faced similar problems last year, while its employees have also staged several protests over unpaid wages. A total of 460.100 euros is allocated for the airport on an annual basis, while the entity government has been forced to inject additional funds in the past few years.

Banja Luka Airport is currently served only by B&H Airlines. In 2011 Adria Airways operated subsidised flights from Ljubljana to Banja Luka but cancelled the service once the subsidies dried up. The airport has announced that it plans to negotiate with Austrian Airlines later this summer for the carrier to restart flights from Vienna in 2013. Jat Airways was invited to launch flights from Belgrade and onwards to Vienna this summer season but the Serbian national carrier’s fleet is stretched to the limit with its existing network. Meanwhile, talks with Di Air to launch summer charters from Tivat have broken down with the airline showing little interest for the route.
