”Since the airline company “Sea Air” connects Osijek with German cities Frankfurt, Munich and Stuttgart, this is a great opportunity to connect B&H with these cities,’’ said Maksimov, adding that in this way Osijek will become certain type of air junction between B&H and Germany.
She emphasized that the desire and plan of Sea Air is to create a small but powerful regional air center that will meet the requirements of clients from Slavonia as well as the requirements of neighboring regions and neighboring countries such as B&H.
”This way, it is planned to improve the whole region, open new job places and develop this unfairly neglected part of Europe,” said Maksimov.

More than 130 pilgrims were transported from Italy and the surrounding area to Mostar by the Sea Air’s Boeing 737. Passengers than continued their trip to Medjugorje by busses.
Sea-Air plans to continue with this cooperation in the future, and some other destinations such as Sicily and Kuwait, that have been announced.
