Zbog krize na more samo za vikend ili na kredit

S prvim znakovima ljeta većina građana u Bosni i Hercegovini počela je razmišljati o dugo očekivanom odmoru od svakodnevnih obaveza, dok su turističke agencije na ponudu stavile brojne aranžmane za ljetovanje širom svijeta.

 

Loš standard

 

No, veliki broj bh. građana zbog ekonomske krize ovog ljeta moći će sebi priuštiti tek vikend-ljetovanje koje košta do 200 maraka, dok će pojedinci na duži odmor otići zahvaljujući namjenskim kreditima koje nudi sve više banaka u našoj zemlji.

Da su brzi keš krediti iz godine u godinu sve traženiji te da je u ovo doba godine povećano interesiranje za kredite koji se odobravaju u roku od 24 sata, potvrdili su nam u nekoliko banaka.

– U zavisnosti od visine aranžmana, naši klijenti najčešće se odlučuju za iznose do 2.000 maraka, mada visina kredita zavisi prvenstveno od kreditne sposobnosti klijenta – kazali su nam u nekoliko banaka te dodali da za ovakve kredite interesiranje stalno raste.

 

Slab interes

 

U udruženjima potrošača BiH smatraju da je zaduživanje radi ljetovanja u kriznim vremenima suvišno. Oni potrošačima preporučuju da uzimanje kredit usklade sa svojim finansijskim mogućnostima.

– U vremenu kada je standard stanovništva sve lošiji, nije realno da se stanovnici zadužuju zbog odlaska na odmor. Ako pogledamo kakvu krizu imamo, potrošači bi morali više voditi računa o tome da li na osnovu svojih primanja i pored redovnih troškova mogu servisirati i ove dugove. Zbog toga smatram da zaduživanje zbog ljetovanja nije dobar izbor – kazala je Gordana Bulić, predsjednica Upravnog odbora Saveza udruženja potrošača BiH.

I iz Udruženja turističke agencije BiH kazali su nam da se osjeća pad zanimanja za organizirani turizam, napominjući da se bilježi konstantan pad broja ljudi koji putuju, i to ne samo za ljetovanja nego čak i za učeničke ekskurzije.

Tunis hit ove sezone

Da je svjetska ekonomska kriza natjerala građane da stegnu kaiš, osjeti se i po smanjenom interesu za ljetovanja.

U agenciji “Sol Azur” iz Sarajeva naglašavaju da je ovogodišnja hit destinacija Tunis, uz standardno atraktivne destinacije kao što su Egipat, Turska te krstarenje Mediteranom.

B&H Airlines cancels all flights … again

B&H Airlines has cancelled all of its flights again until Tuesday April 16. Services to Istanbul, Zurich, Copenhagen and Banja Luka have all been cancelled as the airline’s sole operating ATR72 is believed to be undergoing scheduled maintenance. The carrier’s other ATR, grounded in Germany, is expected to return to Sarajevo soon. A total of 460.000 euros has been accumulated from the departure tax at Sarajevo Airport, which is the amount needed for the aircraft’s maintenance in Germany to be paid, Amir Jažić, B&H CEO says. The Federation government now has to clear the funds which will then be transferred to Germany.

Last week the Federation government approved a 1.3 million euro cash injection for B&H Airlines. More than half of the allocated funds will be used for fuel, followed by handling and landing and maintenance. B&H Airlines plans to launch flights to Skopje in less than a month. With the arrival of its second ATR the carrier will have the opportunity to launch another new destination during the summer. The airline has given up on previous plans to lease a jet engine aircraft.

B&H is facing stiffer competition with the recent arrival of Pegasus Airlines in Sarajevo and the potential arrival of Wizz Air. In May, Gryphon Airlines is expected to launch seasonal summer flights from Kuwait City to the Bosnian capital with its Boeing 767. It will be joined by Kuwait Airways which will operate the route through August and September with its Airbus A300-600 via Istanbul’s Sabiha Gokcen Airport. Meanwhile, local authorities have agreed for promotional flights to be operated between Moscow and Sarajevo in either June or July by Moskovia Airlines. The promo flight should serve as a prelude to regular services between the two capitals in the near future.

Wizz Air from Tuzla to Basel

Wizz Air has announced the launch of its second destination from Bosnia and Herzegovina’s third largest city, Tuzla. The low cost airline will launch services from Tuzla to Basel Mulhouse from June 15. Flights are set to operate twice per week, every Tuesday and Saturday. The services will come in handy for the sizable Bosnian diaspora in Switzerland but also those in nearby Germany and France. Additional flight details for the planned new route can be found here. The low cost airline has already put tickets on sale on its website.

The news comes only a week after Wizz Air announced it was launching its first flights to Bosnia and Herzegovina. The airline will inaugurate services from Malmo to Tuzla on May 31. The no frills airline expects to carry up to 30.000 passengers from Tuzla in its first year. The service will also boost passenger numbers at Tuzla Airport which handled 4.191 passengers in 2012, its worst result in more than three years.

With the addition of Bosnia and Herzegovina to its network, Wizz Air will operate more than 260 routes across 31 countries. This summer season, the airline will boast a significant network from the former Yugoslavia. In the table below you can review which destinations the no frills airline will be serving from EX-YU cities.

B&H Airlines grounded

B&H Airlines has been grounded again for the time being as the Hypo Alpe Adria Bank announces it has blocked all of the carrier’s accounts. All flights have been cancelled for today and tomorrow. Yesterday, the airline resumed operations after more than a week by carrying out its afternoon service to Istanbul. The airline has maintained it had suspended flights due to a technical issue with one of its ATR72s.

“Blocking B&H’s accounts was our last resort. The reason for such action was the accumulated debt B&H Airlines has towards Hypo Alpe Adria in Bosnia and the outstanding payments the airline has on its loan for the financial lease of the ATR aircraft”, Ana Jurković, from Hypo says. She adds the bank did not make the decision lightly but noted that it must treat B&H like all of its other clients. The bank’s representatives, including the country’s Minister for Transport and Communication, Enver Bijedić, met up on Monday in an attempt to resolve the issue which has grounded the Bosnian national carrier. “B&H Airlines has been offered several models to restructure its payments. Unblocking the accounts will depend on whether a common agreement can be reached. Hypo expects for B&H Airlines’ management to act responsibly and consider all of the options so the current situation can be resolved”, Ms. Jurković says. She adds, “It is not in our interest for B&H to declare bankruptcy”.

Last year, in February, B&H Airlines found itself in a similar situation when Turkish Airlines decided to pull out of the carrier’s ownership structure. One of its ATRs was in Germany for maintenance while the other was grounded in Sarajevo for some time. However, even then it was reported that the carrier was not making payments on the loans it took out for the financial lease and eventual purchase of the ATR72s. The latest grounding comes just three weeks prior to the 2013 summer season. B&H Airlines is providing alternative transport for all passengers which have been affected by the cancellations.

Kuwait – Sarajevo flights launched

Regular charter flights between Kuwait City and Sarajevo were launched during the week, making the Bosnian capital the only in the former Yugoslavia to have a direct air link to the Gulf city state. Flights will operate once per week although some months see additional services. The route will run until the end of summer. Flights are being operated by US registered Gryphon Airlines with a leased Boeing 767-200 jet from Jet Asia Airways. Tickets are available for purchase through the airline’s website.

Sarajevo Airport was once no stranger to flights to the Middle East. In the late 1980s JAT Yugoslav Airlines operated direct services from Sarajevo to Baghdad, Amman and Damascus. Belgrade was the last capital in the former Yugoslavia to have a direct air link to Kuwait, as Jat Airways operated the flights in 2004 and 2005, as a technical stop to Dubai with full commercial rights on the Kuwait – Dubai – Kuwait sector. Today, Kuwait City is not the only air link Sarajevo has to the Middle East. The Lebanese national carrier, Middle East Airlines, continues to maintain a one weekly charter service to the Bosnian capital from Beirut with its Airbus A321. The flights mostly cater for Christian pilgrims visiting the Medjugorje sight.

The new arrival should help boost passenger numbers at Sarajevo Airport. While numbers this year have contracted mostly due to B&H Airlines scaling down its operations, the decline has been softened by the numerous charter services operating to the city this summer, which include flights to Tunis, Antalya and Izmir.

Fresh Suspensions from B&H Airlines – Airbosnia

B&H Airlines has temporarily suspended services to Zurich, Copenhagen and Banja Luka, leaving the carrier with a single daily service to Istanbul. Services to Zurich, via Banja Luka, will resume on April 24, while flights to the Danish capital return to the airline’s network on May 2. The suspensions highlight continuing problems the carrier is having with its part owner Turkish Airlines, which has taken back its Airbus A319 from the B&H fleet, unhappy with the government’s attitude towards its national carrier.

B&H currently has one ATR72 in its fleet. The other is formally still undergoing maintenance. However, there is hope that the aircraft will return soon. According to the official schedule the carrier will increase services to Istanbul to double daily from April 25, operate five weekly flights to Zurich and three weekly services to Copenhagen. The current scheduling would require a second aircraft.

Airlines operating to and from Sarajevo have profited from B&H’s woes and Malev’s demise. With inflated prices, Austrian is now operating two daily flights to the Bosnian capital, with much success. Jat Airways will be doubling capacity during the peak summer months as the Serbian carrier will operate flights with its Boeing B737-300 instead of the ATR72.There is still no word from Niki which is conducting a feasibility study into launching flights to Sarajevo.

Turkish Airlines may exit from B&H Airlines – Airbosnia

Local media have tipped that Turkish Airlines, which owns a 49% stake in Bosnia and Herzegovina’s national carrier B&H Airlines, could soon relinquish its shares. The Turkish carrier accuses the Bosnian government and its lack of cooperation for the current state the airline is in. “The partnership started off well. We wanted to export our know-how to the airline. However, the CEO of B&H had to wait three months to get an appointment at the Ministry of Transport. Our ideas were not met with understanding and the ministry did nothing to secure licenses to other countries. This caught us by surprise”, Hamdi Topcu, the Chairman of the Executive Committee of Turkish Airlines told the “Oslobodjenje” daily.

B&H Airlines is today operating with one ATR72 since another has been undergoing maintenance for over a month. Turkish Airlines’ Airbus A319, which operated for B&H has returned to its owner’s fleet and will not be returning to Sarajevo. The airline has been forced to cancel numerous destinations and many are beginning to avoid the national carrier due to uncertainty. In 2010, B&H Airlines recorded a loss of 10.230.000 euros. The airline is yet to publish its 2011 financial report although the Ministry of Transport warns that substantial losses were also recorded last year. “Bosnia does not care for B&H Airlines. This was a big disappointment for us. The main reason for the current state of the airline is a complete lack of interest and understanding”, Topcu concludes.

Enver Bijedić from the Ministry of Transport says Bosnia needs a national carrier. “It is our aim to survive with these two aircraft. We have to keep the airline and keep flying until there are better conditions on the market”. Earlier in the month the ministry accused Turkish for not adhering to its purchasing contract. B&H Airlines was set up on the back of the bankrupt former national carrier Air Bosna. The Bosnian government subsidises its national carrier with 3.4 million euros on an annual basis. B&H carried 129.435 passengers in 2011, a decrease of 6.7% compared to the year before.

BH Airlines

Tomorrow, the 2012 Northern Hemisphere summer season begins. Following on from last week, when changes and additions were published for Croatia Airlines and Jat Airways, this week amendments for Adria Airways, B&H Airlines and Montenegro Airlines can be viewed.

Adria Airways’ summer season sees a big reduction in operations compared to last year. Flights to Paris, Warsaw, Toulon and Banja Luka were all suspended last year. Seasonal flights to Athens, Dublin, Kiev and Stockholm won’t be resuming this summer. The airline will reduce frequencies on regional flights with services to Priština, Tirana and Skopje taking a hit. On the other hand, the Slovenian carrier will launch new flights to London Luton Airport, increase frequencies to Copenhagen and operate numerous charters.

B&H Airlines will operate flights only to Istanbul, Copenhagen and Zurich via Banja Luka. The airline currently has a single ATR72 in operation. However, if its Turkish part owner manages to make amends with the Bosnian government other aircraft could be returned to the B&H fleet which would lead to some destinations being resumed.

Finally, Montenegro Airlines will reduce frequencies to several destinations. The most notable is a reduction of nine weekly flights from Podgorica to Zurich. The airline will also halve the number of flights to Moscow. However, the Montenegrin carrier will introduce a new service from Tivat to London Gatwick and will strengthen frequencies to Paris.
