Sarajevo Airport’s year to remember

Sarajevo Airport has recorded its busiest year since opening its doors in 1969. In early November the airport handled more passengers than during all of 2012. In the following year, the airport will see the arrival of new airlines and will continue to invest into its infrastructure. “In the first half of November we welcomed our 600.000th passenger of the year, which is of big significance for us since it is the greatest number of passengers we have ever handled in a single calendar year. All this is the result of the constant business efforts of the Management Board and all the employees at our company”, Ivica Veličan, the CEO of Sarajevo Airport, says. Over the past two weeks the airport has been experiencing problems with poor visibility with many flights cancelled. This has reignited the debate whether Sarajevo’s airport should be relocated.
During 2013 Sarajevo Airport welcomed several new airline including Pegasus Airlines, Kuwait Airways and Moskovia Airlines which is to launch flights to the Bosnian capital tomorrow. For the coming year, SAS Scandinavian Airlines has announced the launch of seasonal summer flights from Stockholm to Sarajevo. Negotiations are continuing with the low cost airline Wizz Air and Etihad Regional has also shown interest to launch flights to the Bosnian capital. Talks are also being held with Libyan based airlines for the resumption of the Sarajevo -Tripoli service, which was last operated by Buraq Air prior to the rebellion in the country. B&H Airlines recently announced plans to launch several new regional flights next year.
Despite the increase in passenger numbers, Sarajevo Airport has cancelled its expansion project until further notice. However, there have been some improvements inside the existing terminal building with the refurbishment of the business class lounge, expansion of the duty free area and the extension of the airport’s catering facilities. “The improvements we have made in recent times has reflected in our financial performance. We have seen an increase in revenue in almost all segments (passenger services, aircraft handling, trade, cargo and complementary services). The growth in revenue has been particularly visible in the area of increased passenger flow and airline operations”, Mr. Veličan concludes. As it currently stands, 2014 promises to be another busy year for Sarajevo Airport.

Record growth for Sarajevo Airport

Sarajevo Airport has recorded strong passenger growth in August on top of its busiest post war day. It handled 79.796 passengers, an increase of 31.2% compared to the same month last year. On August 31 some 3.600 people passed through the airport, making it its busiest 24 hours since it reopened its doors on August 16, 1996. The growth is being led by a significant increase in flight operations to and from Sarajevo. This year Bosnia and Herzegovina’s busiest airport welcomed the arrival of Pegasus Airlines from Istanbul’s Sabiha Gokcen Airport, making it a popular alternative to Turkish Airlines and B&H Airlines. Over the summer, Turkish Airlines significantly increased its number of operations, totalling a record of eighteen weekly flights during peak season.

In August Kuwait Airways inaugurated its seasonal flights to the Bosnian capital, competing against Eastern SkyJets which is also operating regular charters from Kuwait City. Adria also operated several charters to Sarajevo this summer, carrying tourists transiting on flights to and from Kuwait. Sarajevo Airport could soon see the arrival of Alitalia as the Italian carrier is considering the city as part of its push to seize new international opportunities and streamline connections. Furthermore, Norwegian Air Shuttle has converted its seasonal summer service from Stockholm to Sarajevo to year long flights. In the first eight months of the year Sarajevo Airport welcomed 453.324 passengers, an increase of 15.1% compared to the same period last year.

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.

Austrian Airlines flights to Banja Luka maybe in 2013

Austrian Airlines could begin flights from Vienna to Banja Luka, after the head of the airport, Davorin Mišić, said he put in a request for negotiations with the carrier to begin this summer. Talks are likely to be held in either May or June. During the late 1990s Austrian operated scheduled flights to Banja Luka. “It is very important that we have at least a daily flight to one big city, operated by an established airline, to either Vienna or Belgrade”, Mihić says, adding that Austrian could begin flights to the city either during the 2012/2013 winter season or the 2013 summer season. Jat Airways was offered to operate subsidised flights to Vienna via Banja Luka, however, due to its fleet being fully utilised over the summer, the Serbian carrier rejected the offer.

Nevertheless, Banja Luka Airport’s management has made a last ditch attempt to lure Jat. It has proposed for the airline to make a stop in Banja Luka on its services to Pula and Split, which are set to launch this summer. The Serbian carrier discontinued services to Banja Luka several years ago due to extremely poor loads. Similarly, Adria Airways operated flights to Banja Luka in 2010 and 2011. After the airport could no longer afford to subsidise the flights, which saw only a handful of passengers, Adria suspended its service from Ljubljana.

Meanwhile, a private Montenegrin airline has expressed interest to begin charter flights to Banja Luka from Podgorica and Tivat this summer. While the airline in question hasn’t been officially named, sources suggest it is the Podgorica based Di Air. Flights would be operated with the 19 seat L-410 Turbolet aircraft. Banja Luka Airport has been struggling to attract passengers lately. B&H Airlines’ woes with Turkish Airlines, which has led to constant flight cancellations over the past two months, have had an impact on Banja Luka Airport whose only customer is the Bosnian national carrier with flights to Zurich.

Aerodrom Banja Luka

Aktivnosti nа izgrаdnji Aerodromа Bаnjа Lukа otpočele su 1976. godine. U sklаdu sа tаdаšnjim rаzvojnim plаnovimа izgrаđeni su аerodromski kаpаciteti nа osnovu kojih je Aerodrom Bаnjа Lukа definisаn kаo аerodrom sekundаrnog znаčаjа, preko kog bi se odvijаo isključivo unutrаšnji vаzdušni sаobrаćаj nа prostoru SFRJ.

Političko-teritorijаlnom trаnsformаcijom prostorа SFRJ i BiH konstituisаnа je Republikа Srpskа, kаo reаlnа političkа činjenicа, što Aerodromu Bаnjа Lukа dаje novi znаčаj i sаsvim drugаčiju ulogu. Aerodrom Bаnjа Lukа se pojаvljuje kаo jedаn od nаjbržih, nаjbezbjednijih i nаjekonomičnijih izlаzа Republike Srpske u svijet i sаmim tim postаje jedаn od bitnih činilаcа držаvnosti Republike Srpske.

Aerodrom Bаnjа Lukа je otvoren zа civilni vаzdušni sаobrаćаj 18. novembrа 1997. godine. Od 02. mаrtа 1998. godine, kаdа je Jugoslovenski аerotrаnsport obаvio prvi promotivni let sа Aerodromа Bаnjа Lukа ovаj аerodrom je u isključivoj funkciji međunаrodnog prevozа putnikа.

Aerodrom Bаnjа Lukа je izgrаđen nа području opštinа Lаktаši i Grаdiškа, nа prostoru koji pripаdа prostrаnoj dolini rijeke Vrbаs kojа se širi u poznаto Lijevče polje.

Udаljenost аerodromа od mаgistrаlnog putа Bаnjа Lukа-Grаdiškа je 1100 m, а od grаdа Bаnjа Lukа je 23 km.
