The management of the Tuzla International Airport and representatives of the Lumiwings airline company from Greece signed a cooperation agreement. In addition to new airlines, the contract also includes the establishment of a base.
From December 18, passengers will be able to travel to a total of five destinations: Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands and Germany, but also for the first time, passengers will be able to travel to Turkey, i.e. Istanbul.
The International Airport says that with this signing, passengers will once again be able to go to the most distant destinations, and if there is more interest from passengers, the introduction of new destinations will follow from January.
“Our citizens who had a ten-year habit of traveling to Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands and Germany will still be able to continue. Given that it is a very short time until the start of operations, more precisely December 18, we have currently chosen 5+1 destinations for beginning, and if there is a good response from passengers, which is very important, we will announce additional destinations already in January,” said Dzevad Halilcevic, director of Tuzla International Airport.
“In cooperation with our new partner, the Tuzla airport, we announce on this occasion that the Lumiwings airline will start operations from December 18, 2023.”, said Dimitrij Kremiotis, manager of the airline “Lumiwings”.
“We did the work of the travelers themselves, for the sake of our diaspora, and then, of course, the undoubtedly positive impact on the trade and tourism of the Tuzla Canton,” explained Irfan Halilagic, Prime Minister of Tuzla Canton.
While the flights start on December 18, passengers can buy tickets from today at promotional prices of as much as 75 euros, which are the destinations Stockholm, Sweden, Halmstad, Sweden, Maastricht, the Netherlands, Saarbrücken, Germany, Esbjerg, Denmark, and Istanbul, Turkey which is currently under preparation.
Prime Minister of Tuzla Canton Irfan Halilagić states that work will continue to be done on the arrangement of the Tuzla International Airport in order to attract other airlines and to expand the scope of operations at this Tuzla airport.
