Sarajevo International Airport
The centrally located Sarajevo International Airport is less than 10km southwest of Baščaršija. Airlines flying here year-round include Adria Airways, Air Serbia, Austrian Airlines, Croatia Airlines, Eurowings, flydubai, Lufthansa, Norwegian Air Shuttle, Pegasus Airlines, Qatar Airways, Turkish Airlines and Wizz Air. The terminal is modern but compact, with the usual array of car-hire and exchange offices, and a post office counter.
- On the meter, airport-bound taxis charge around 7KM from Ilidža or 16KM from Baščaršija, plus 2KM per bag for luggage in some cabs. However, at the terminal it's not always easy to find a taxi prepared to use the meter.
- A Centrotrans bus marked Aerodrom-Baščaršija (5KM, pay on-board) departs from outside the terminal and takes around 30 minutes to central Sarajevo. However, departures are (at most) once an hour. Buses follow the main tram route, heading east along the river via Obala Kulina bana and then looping back to the airport along Mula Mustafe Bašeskije, stopping on demand at all the main stops along the way.
- Sarajevo's main bus station has daily services to all neighbouring countries and to as far afield as Amsterdam and Istanbul.
- There are good links to Bosnian destinations including Mostar (20KM, 2½ hours, 10 daily), Međugorje (17KM, four hours, three daily), Visoko (5KM, 37 minutes, every half-hour), Banja Luka (32KM, five hours, six daily) and Bihać (42KM, 6½ hours, four daily).
- Further services to Republika Srpska (RS) and Serbia leave from the Istočno Sarajevo Bus Station, although this isn't convenient for most travellers.
