Sarajevo International Airport

The Sarajevo International Airport (SJJ) is the premier international facility for Bosnia and Herzegovina, offering the most in the way of international connections to and from this country. It is located an easy distance of about 10km from the centre of town, and has links in the form of buses and taxis. A fixture in the city since the 1930s, this airport has happily updated in order to accommodate its growing passenger traffic.

There is one main terminal building and you will find WiFi access throughout the airport, though this is a paid-for service, which is operated through coupons that you buy at the shops within the terminal. If you don’t have a mobile device, or one that is able to make calls abroad, there are public telephones you can utilise. There is a currency exchange service, though you may have to wait to get into the city to access ATMs.

There are a few dining options, but these aren’t extensive; with just a bar, restaurant and café on site. However, these will cater to any hungry passenger that needs to feel refreshed after a flight or before one. There is a small newsagency, where you can pick up reading materials and a duty-free outlet available if you want to pick up some tax-free items like tobacco, alcohol, or cosmetics.

There are also travel and tour operators that have desks within the airport, and if you are new to the city you can book a couple of trips before you even leave the terminal.

Fly to Sarajevo from Australia with a number of different carriers, such as Turkish Airlines, Etihad Airways, Emirates, Qantas, Cathay Pacific, Thai Airways, Lufthansa, Singapore Airlines, British Airways and Lufthansa.

Travel Information

·         All the major rental companies operate out of this airport, and arranging a car can be done as soon as you arrive. However, to compare prices and snag the best deal, we recommend that you book you car rental online with Skyscanner. The drive is an easy 20 minutes, just get on the Kurta Schorka/M18 which leads directly into the central Sarajevo.

·         In terms of public transportation, there aren’t many options. There is a bus – Route 36 – that will take you to the tram stop Nedzarici, and on the tram you will find connections to the city.

·         Taking a taxi into town is a pretty convenient way to get to the central part of the city, but it is the most expensive, with a typical journey costing 20-30BAM ($28-42), though if you prefer, you can book an airport transfer, which may prove to be a bit cheaper.
