FlyBosnia (6W, Sarajevo) is planning to add a further two A320 Family narrowbodies on top of the single A319-100 it has already taken, CEO Chris Gabriel told English-language Sarajevo Times.

"We are aiming to have another two aircraft this year and, by the end of five years, we aim to have a fleet of five aircraft. We are looking to increase the number of flights in and out of Sarajevo by more than double in the next twelve to fifteen months," Gabriel said.

The Bosnian start-up, a first attempt at creating a Sarajevo-based carrier since the collapse of B&H Airlines (JA, Sarajevo) in 2015, planned to launch on January 31, 2019, although the date will be postponed. FlyBosnia's website remains inactive and its only aircraft, an ex-Rossiya A319 E7-FBA (msn 1808) has just returned from Sofia for maintenance.

The airline plans to announce its schedule and commence sales within the next "one or two weeks". Besides tickets, it will also sell package tours in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Gabriel said that the airline would like to initially serve London and Frankfurt Int'l in Europe, as well as Riyadh, Jeddah, and Bahrain Int'l in the Middle East. Going forward, FlyBosnia will focus on Europe and the Middle East with Rome, Paris, Moscow, Beirut, and Kuwait listed as potential future destinations.

"In addition to that, we have received numerous charter requests. So many in fact that we probably can’t fulfil the demand in the early stages. We have built our schedule up and we are just slotting those charters in. We are in the process of getting slots at the various airports we intend to fly to," the CEO added.
