Tuzla success for Wizz Air

Wizz Air has successfully launched its first flights from Bosnia and Herzegovina with strong passenger numbers recorded on its service between Malmo and Tuzla. The low cost airline welcomed 149 passengers onboard its inaugural flight last Wednesday with strong figures recorded on yesterday’s service as well. Better than expected bookings have led the airline to increase its originally planned two weekly service to three times per week. Furthermore, Wizz will introduce flights from Basel and Gothenburg to Bosnia and Herzegovina’s third largest city on June 15 and June 17 respectively. The airline is targeting the large Bosnian diaspora in Sweden, Germany and Switzerland by offering direct flights to the country.

Speaking at the service launch in Tuzla, Wizz Air’s Chief Commercial Officer, Gyorgy Abran, said, “Over the past few months Wizz Air has invested in the development of aviation and tourism in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Now we are at a crossroads, a historic moment. Flights to the popular Swedish city of Malmo have been long anticipated and in this way we are announcing the arrival of low fares in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Our presence in Tuzla demonstrates our commitment to Bosnia and Herzegovina and we hope to further develop our operations in this market”. The airline estimates it will carry some 30.000 passengers in its first year of operations from the city. Furthermore, the low cost carrier hasn’t ruled out future flights to Mostar and Banja Luka.

Meanwhile, Wizz Air is recording strong results in other EX-YU markets as well. In May alone, the airline carried 31.063 passengers to and from Skopje and has positioned itself as the busiest airline operating out of the country. In total it handled 120.989 passengers in the first five months, well ahead of second placed Turkish Airlines. After basing its second aircraft in Belgrade over the weekend and launching new flights to Oslo and Paris, Wizz Air anticipates it will handle over 480.000 passengers in the Serbian capital, making it the second busiest airline in the country.
