The city of Mostar in southern Bosnia and Herzegovina will be connected by air with the Italian cities of Naples and Bari from June 22.
The new routes were announced on June 5 when the delegation from the Italian regions Campania and Apulia visited Mostar and met with the city’s officials and Mostar Airport management.
The new routes from Mostar to Naples and Bari will operate twice a week until the end of October. Mostar has been recently connected with charter lines to Pescara, and the route to Perugia should start to operate by the end of this summer.
Pietro Faglia, the President of Campania region (Naples) said that a large number of pilgrims from this Italian region are visiting Mostar and that the cooperation should be improved.
"Management of the airport will make every effort in full capacity to accept passengers and to realise cooperation with this region,” he added.
Mostar Airport has seen an increase in the number of flights from south Italy recently. A record number of flights was recorded on April 27 this year when 2,200 Italian tourists arrived to Mostar.
