Wizz Air to launch flights to Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Banja Luka Airport



EX-YU aviation news - 27.11.2012

Wizz Air will launch flights from Malmo to Bosnia and Herzegovina’s second largest city, Banja Luka, next summer season. The two sides are finalising an agreement which will see the low cost airline enter the Bosnian market for the first time. “If they are willing to launch year long flights we will put tickets on sale in January while the flights will launch in April”, the acting CEO of the Airports of Republika Srpska company, Davorin Mihić, says. Wizz offered Banja Luka flights from Luton, Malmo, Eindhoven and Dortmund to choose from, with the airport selecting the service from Sweden as it considers it to be the most viable out of the offered destinations.
Wizz Air’s arrival could bring back life to the airport which was on the verge of losing its international operating license earlier in the year. Banja Luka is currently served only by B&H Airlines which makes a stop in the city on its Sarajevo - Zurich service. Although it was planned for Jat Airways to resume its off again on again route from Belgrade this December, this looks unlikely. The Serbian carrier will only fly the unprofitable service if it receives generous subsides. The government of the entity of Republika Srpska is prepared to fork out just over half a million euros, however, the Serbian government has still not disclosed whether it would finance the flights.
Over the past two years Wizz Air has rapidly expanded across the former Yugoslavia. It has opened a base in Belgrade and Skopje and operates flights Ljubljana, as well as seasonal services to the Croatian coast. Besides Banja Luka, the no frills carrier is also negotiating possible route launches to Mostar and Tuzla. Bosnia and Herzegovina’s busiest airport, Sarajevo, remains off limits for the time being due to its refusal to slash its taxes.
