Kuwait Airways eyes Sarajevo service in 2017


Kuwait Airways is considering introducing scheduled flights to Sarajevo next year.

Bosnia and Herzegovina's Ambassador to Kuwait, Mehmed Halilović, said the airline will add ten new aircraft to its fleet by the end of the year and, as a result, plans to launch new routes in 2017.

According to Mr Halilović, Sarajevo is high on the list of potential new destinations. The Ambassador added that a privately-owned Kuwaiti airline is also evaluating flights to Sarajevo.

Kuwait Airways operated seasonal services between its hub and the Bosnian capital in August and September of 2013. Flights ran twice per week with a 232-seat Airbus A300-600 aircraft via Istanbul's Sabiha Gokcen Airport.
