Wizz Air has announced plans for a new route between London Luton and Sarajevo, capital and largest city of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The twice weekly service will launch on May 21, with flights on Mondays and Fridays, and fares starting from £27.99 each way.

Fly Bosnia had previously operated the Luton-Sarajevo route, but the carrier terminated all scheduled services in August last year.

Wizz is also increasing the frequencies of four routes from Luton, as follows:

  • Suceava from nine to 11 flights per week
  • Dalaman from two to three flights per week
  • Athens from four to five flights per week
  • Reykjavik from three to four flights per week

In December the carrier also launched new routes from Luton to Gibraltar and Madeira.

Commenting on the news Owain Jones, Managing Director of Wizz Air UK, said:

“Travel is currently restricted due to government regulations, but at Wizz Air we are already looking ahead to a brighter future in which holiday travel is possible again.

“Whether it’s discovering the streets of Sarajevo, exploring the spectacular landscape in Reykjavik, or relaxing on the stunning beaches in Dalaman, our low-fare flights offer UK passengers even more opportunities to escape to their dream destination once restrictions are lifted.

“When the time comes, we will be ready with our enhanced health and safety measures to welcome passengers back on board our ultra-young and efficient aircraft.”
