Sarajevo Airport Car Hire

Sarajevo international Airport is also familiarly known as Butmir Airport. It is an important International Airport for Bosnia and Herzegovina, which is located in Suburbs of Butmir, capital city of Sarajevo. First flight services at Sarajevo started during 1935 from Sarajevo till Zagreb from Butmir suburban airfields. The airport is now able to embark over 400,000 passengers in the year 2006 compared to 25,000 passengers in 1996. Sarajevo International Airport was awarded as “The Best Airport below one million passengers” for the year 2005 by “The Airports council International”.

Sarajevo International Airport has undergone various stages of renovation from the last four decades. After 1936, in the year 1966 the construction of the present airport started. The first International flight from this new aerodrome flew to Frankfurt in 1970. Later on, in the year 1984, the runway is extended for about 200 meters for the Winter Olympic Games, along with improved navigation mechanisms and a fresh new terminal building was built (upgraded to handle a passenger volume of whopping 1 million). During the Bosnian war, the airport was under the control of Yugoslav federal army and regular flight services were halted then. In 1992, the airport was handed over to UN for humanitarian aid and it turned up to be the biggest humanitarian aid from the UN. Sarajevo was reopened for civilian traffic back in 1996.
