Wizz Air has added Four new Routes from Banja Luka Airport

Wizz Air has added another destination to its line up of new routes from Banja Luka Airport, which were announced earlier this week. In addition to the previously announced Dortmund, Basel, Eindhoven and Malmo, the budget airline will also introduce operations from Stockholm Skavsta starting June 6.

Flights will operate twice per week, each Thursday and Sunday. The airline already maintains flights from Skavsta to Tuzla in Bosnia and Herzegovina. So far this summer season, Wizz Air has announced 25 new routes from the former Yugoslavia, fourteen of which are from Sarajevo and Banja Luka.

Commenting on its new route launches from Banja Luka, the low cost airline said, “The new Wizz Air routes include five amazing destinations for passengers from Bosnia and Herzegovina. The flights will be launched in June 2021 and will operate twice a week. The new routes are expected to stimulate the aviation sector, as well as the catering sector in the region, at the same time enabling passengers from Bosnia and Herzegovina to travel with Wizz to the Netherlands, France, Sweden and Germany at the lowest prices”. Tickets for all destinations can now be booked online, through the airline’s website.

Wizz Air will join Air Serbia and Ryanair as the third carrier operating out of Banja Luka.

Ryanair has currently suspended all its flights to Bosnia and Herzegovina’s second largest city until mid-May due to the coronavirus pandemic, while Air Serbia restored its operations from Belgrade last June. In 2019, Banja Luka passengers connecting via Belgrade with Air Serbia primarily originated from, or were headed to, Zurich. It was followed by Moscow, London Heathrow and Athens as the busiest feeders for the Banja Luka service, Ex Yu Aviation writes.
