Greece’s largest airline, Aegean Airlines, will discontinue flights between Athens and Sarajevo as a result of the effects of the global coronavirus outbreak.

In a letter to Sarajevo International Airport’s management, the airline confirmed it would not be resuming the route in 2020.

Flights between the two cities were launched in June 2019, and were expected to resume twice per week at the end of May.

The company’s services to other destinations across the former Yugoslavia - Belgrade, Zagreb, Dubrovnik, Podgorica, Skopje and Split - will continue to operate as planned, at least for the time being.

Meanwhile, FlyBosnia has temporarily suspended all flights from the Sarajevo International Airport. The carrier has suspended services to Rome and London Luton, but the reason has not been announced.
