The Lufthansa Group’s low cost carrier Eurowings is expanding its flight schedule from June 2020 and will return to Bosnia and Herzegovina, while growing its presence in Croatia - albeit at reduced frequencies.
Exyuaviation.com reported that Eurowings planned to restart flights between Cologne and Sarajevo as of June 2 with one weekly service.
Several weeks ago, authorities in Bosnia and Herzegovina closed the airports for commercial traffic, as one of the measures aimed at curbing the spread of coronavirus infections in the country. However, airports in Sarajevo, Tuzla, Banja Luka and Mostar are expected to be reopened on June 1.
Eurowings is expected to add services to Croatia’s coast by resuming flights from Stuttgart, Hamburg and Dusseldorf to Split. Operations from Hamburg and Dusseldorf to Rijeka, from Dusseldorf to Pula, and from Cologne to Zadar will restart once per week on June 20, while budget carrier’s Cologne - Zagreb service will be reduced from two to one per week during the month of June.
“We can feel the growing desire of people to travel again and relax and enjoy their holidays after a long period of travel bans. This is exactly what we are now making possible with our extended summer schedule - reliably, safely and with all due caution”, said Eurowings’ CEO, Jens Bischof.
Eurowings’ parent company Lufthansa will not be resuming any of its destinations in the former Yugoslavia before June 15.
