History of Air Bosnia
Air Bosnia was officially founded in 1994 as the main airline link to and from Bosnia. At the time of founding, the Government of Bosnia owned 51% of the airline and Energinovest the other 49%. Operations officially began in 1997 with leased aircraft and flights to most major European destinations. In 2000 the Government organized the purchase of an Airbus but this deal was later cancelled. In 2003 the airline ceased all operations because of accumulated debt. At this point there were 14 destinations, 2 aircraft and 2 code share agreements with other airlines. In 2004 the government bailed the airline out of its debt and it began operating once again in 2005.
Presently BH Airlines has automated e-ticketing and employs 90 people. There are scheduled services to Zurich, Istanbul, Stuttgart, Cologne, Frankfurt and Zagreb. There is chartered service to Turkey, Greece and Tunis.
