Tuzla Airport - Sarajevo
The journey between Tuzla Airport and Sarajevo takes about 2 hours, depending on the departure time and the current traffic jam. All departures from Tuzla Airport are coordinated with flights at the Airport. As WizzAir's official partner for Bosnia and Herzegovina, Balkan Transfer is also your guarantee for a safe, reliable transfer that always accompanies every flight. Transfers usually depart 30 minutes after the plane lands, but will wait for all passengers until they complete passport and customs control. In the event of a flight delay, Balkan Transfer will wait for you as long as necessary: Your transfer is always 100% secure.
It is the same in the opposite direction, when you go from the city to the airport, or from Sarajevo to Tuzla Airport. Your transfer is always on time, and departure is approximately 4 hours before your flight. This means that with a 2 hour drive (approximately) we aim to arrive at the airport about 2 hours before your flight. Departure time refers to the time of departure from the city (with the shuttle transport that takes you from your door). In that case, the driver will inform you about the exact time of departure from your address.

Tuzla Airport - information
International Airport Tuzla (TZL) is the second largest airport in BiH, and is located 15 kilometers from Tuzla, the third largest city in BiH, and 113 kilometers from the capital Sarajevo.
Balkan Transfer has its office at Tuzla Airport, and you will notice us in the arrival terminal, or right in front of the terminal where we have our parking spaces.
Although with a small and outdated infrastructure, the airport has experienced an awakening in recent years with the arrival of the low-budget company Wizzair, which offered regular flights to about 15 destinations in Europe. This has attracted more than 500,000 passengers a year, arriving at or departing from this airport.
The traffic still takes place in the old terminal, and only the most basic infrastructure is available to passengers at the airport, including one cafe-restaurant. The terminal is very small, with a maximum of 10 flights a day. Don’t worry about being late, even if you only arrive an hour before the flight. There is no wireless internet for passengers at the airport.
Important: Don't forget to check for your flight online, because check-in at the airport will be charged multiple times!
Sarajevo - information
Don't worry, it's not difficult to get to Sarajevo from Tuzla Airport. This is perhaps the best way to get to Sarajevo, as you can take advantage of cheap flights to Tuzla.
Although Sarajevo is not far from Tuzla Airport (113 kilometers), there is currently no public transport you can use. Buses to Sarajevo are available from Tuzla and Živinice, but to get there from the airport, you have to pay a taxi. Passengers therefore recognized the Balkan Transfer van as the best option. In about two hours, with a new van, you will arrive at any address in Sarajevo. The same goes if you go from Sarajevo to Tuzla Airport.
With close to half a million people, a turbulent past and a rich culture, Sarajevo is today a modern and unique European capital. Most of the accommodation is in the Old Town or the Center, and you do not need a car to tour the city.
