The meeting included a proposal submitted by the society to Gulf Air with a vision of launching a direct flight route between Manama and Sarajevo following the method of air charter service. The number of GCC tourists in recent years travelling to Bosnia and Herzegovina for leisure and medical tourism as well as real estate business has grown; the society believes a direct route between the two capitals will be successful in attracting seasonal charter travel.
