FlyBosnia has commenced its first commercial service, with its Airbus A319 aircraft departing Sarajevo for Kuwait City this morning. Despite a three-hour delay, the aircraft will receive a special welcome in Kuwait. FlyBosnia will operate another service between the two on May 7, with regular operations to commence on June 4. The airline is also expected to take a second A319 in the coming days, with the jet currently awaiting its delivery flight at Phoenix Goodyear Airport.

FlyBosnia operated its first commercial flight yesterday, between Sarajevo and Kuwait City, with the airline receiving a special welcome in the Gulf. The special service comes a month before the carrier commences scheduled operations.

“Our approach at FlyBosnia has always been the same – to link Bosnia and Herzegovina with nonstop flights on select routes in Europe and the Middle East where there is sufficient demand. The destinations in our first phase of expansion will be Riyadh, Jeddah, Kuwait, Bahrain, Beirut and Amman in the Middle East, as well as London, Frankfurt, Rome and Dublin in Europe. We will continue expanding our network as our fleet grows”, the carrier’s CEO, Chris Gabriel, said. The airline is expected to take delivery of a second Airbus A319 jet in the coming days.
