SARAJEVO (Bosnia and Herzegovina), February 22 (SeeNews) – Croatia Airlines will start year-round direct flights from the country's capital Zagreb to Bosnia's Mostar on May 3, Croatia's transport ministry has said.

The route will be serviced twice a week, on Thursdays and Sundays, from Zagreb to Mostar, and on Mondays and Fridays from Mostar to Zagreb, according to a statement posted on the website of the ministry.

Mostar airport earlier launched a call for an airline to establish a link between the two cities.

The government of Bosnia's Federation said earlier it will subsidise the operation of the air link between Mostar and Zagreb.

Mostar and Zagreb have not been linked by air for some 12 years. B&H Airlines ran the service until 2006 under a code share agreement with Croatia Airlines.

The Federation is one of the two entities that form Bosnia and Herzegovina. The other is the Serb Republic.
