Hungarian low cost airline Wizz Air has extended temporary suspension of all flights from the Tuzla International Airport until April 30.

Statement issued by the company reads that suspension of flights has been introduced as a precautionary measure aimed at preventing the spread of the COVID-19 infections. 

Passengers who have already booked tickets for one of Wizz Air flights in April will receive additional information via e-mail, or through the company’s mobile application.

Wizz Air announced that 120 percent of the original ticket price will be transferred to passengers’ ‘WIZZ’ accounts, and they will be able to spend the money on company’s products and services within the next 24 months.

Passengers can also decide to cancel the reservation and get a refund, but the process will last a bit longer.

Wizz Air is the only airline operating scheduled flights out of Tuzla. The airline currently maintains twelve routes to five countries from the Tuzla International Airport: Dortmund, Cologne, Friedrichshafen, Berlin Schönefeld, Baden-Baden, Memmingen, Frankfurt Hahn (Germany), Billund (Denmark), Eindhoven (the Netherlands), Basel Mulhouse (France), Gothenburg and Malmö (Sweden).

Regular flights to Vienna (Austria), Växjö and Stockholm (Sweden) were supposed to be introduced on March 29, at the beginning of the summer season, while charter flights to Antalya (Turkey) were expected to operate on Tuesdays and Fridays between June and the second half of September.

As of Monday, March 30, all four international airports in Bosnia and Herzegovina - in Sarajevo, Tuzla, Banja Luka and Mostar - are completely closed for passenger traffic.
