One B&H ATR Sstill Grounded Over MRO Fees

Bosnian carrier B&H Airlines resumed some flight operations on Sunday (March 15) following the grounding of its two ATR72-200 aircraft.

Bosnian carrier B&H Airlines resumed some flight operations on Sunday (March 15) following the grounding of its two ATR72-200 aircraft.

The airline said one of the turboprops, which were in Mönchengladbach, Germany undergoing maintenance, has resumed scheduled flights from Zurich to Sarajevo.

However, the other remains grounded in Germany after B&H failed to pay €200,000 ($205,000) in outstanding maintenance fees.

Earlier this month, the Bosnian government prevented the airline’s closure after it renegotiated bridging agreements with the ATR72s’ owners, Austrian bank Hypo Group Alpe Adria, and Sarajevo Airport over the carrier’s outstanding leasing and ground-handling debts.
