Qatar Airways to add Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina, to global route network

The historic city of Sarajevo is set to join Qatar Airways’ expanding global network as the airline announces the famous Balkan city will now launch in October as part of the carrier’s expedited expansion plans.

The capital of Bosnia & Herzegovina is now becoming the latest must-see destination for leisure travellers, combining its rich history with a modern atmosphere to offer a unique cultural mix.

Visitors can experience stunning views of the city and surrounding mountains from one of Sarajevo’s many viewing platforms, and visit Baščaršija, an Ottoman bazaar in the heart of the city boasting many remarkable historical and cultural sights.

Today’s announcement of the new four times-weekly service, set to begin on October 31st, is part of the airline’s expedited expansion into Eastern Europe, with the recent launch of four times-weekly service to Skopje as well as daily flights to Prague, Czech Republic and Kyiv, Ukraine set to begin later this month.

Qatar Airways chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “Launching flights to Sarajevo is a significant step toward increasing our presence in Eastern Europe, and will provide our passengers with a new and exciting route to and from this remarkable city.
