Bosnian Wand Airlines (Sarajevo) is not an airline holding a valid Air Operators Certificate (AOC) from Bosnia and Herzegovina according to the aviation authority of that country. Instead the would-be carrier was planning to operate flights under its brand using an Air Mediterranee/ Hermes Airlines Airbus A321. The carrier announced it operated its first charter flight in January 2015 (below) with the pictured Airbus A321-111 F-GYAN (msn 535). The proposed airline was planning to operate from Sarajevo regularly to Amsterdam, Athens, Frankfurt, Malmo and Stockholm starting on February 20.

However there are now no flights scheduled this month. According to EX-YU Aviation News, the company has suspended all operations and will offer refunds.

The Bosnia and Herzegovina Directorate of Civil Aviation has issued this statement:

In reference to the information circulated by the media in the last several days, stating that a company named “Bosnian Wand Airlines” was to operate its first flight from Bosnia and Herzegovina, we would like to inform the public that said company does not hold an Air Operator Certificate (AOC) issued by the Bosnia and Herzegovina Directorate of Civil Aviation, which is a necessary requirement for the provision of air transport of passengers and goods for commercial purposes.

Although the company, having the adjective Bosnian in its name, has a number of employees who are citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina, it is, above all, not an airline, contrary to what was stated in certain media reports.

A request for the flight, which had been announced to be operated from Sarajevo to Amsterdam on January 9, was submitted by the Greek airline “Hermes Airlines”, and not by the company “Bosnia Wand Airlines”.
