Balkans |  Bosnia and Herzegovina may have its fifth airport by 2026

Bihac’s fifth airport is scheduled to be built by 2026.

According to local media reports, an experimental runway and access roads to the airport complex have been constructed, making up 300 meters of the planned length of Bihac Airport of 1,800 meters so far.

“To ensure the continuity of the runway of the future airport, the owners of expropriated land 132 need to compensate between 9 and 10 euros per square metre, depending on the quality,” said airport director Anil Hadzic.

The Government of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina has so far provided 2.5 million euros out of the 10.2 million euros required to compensate the landowners.

Hadzic added that this project is of great importance in connecting the Una-Sana Canton with the rest of the country, but it will also serve as a catalyst for the economic development of Bihac and the entire Una-Sana Canton.

So far, the government has invested several million euros in the project every year. Various permits have already been obtained, including environmental ones. Bihac is located near the Croatian border and is the eighth largest city in the country.

Bosnia and Herzegovina currently has four international commercial airports. Airports in Sarajevo, Tuzla, Banja Luka and Mostar served a total of 1,907,895 passengers from January to October.
