Location information for Sarajevo Airport

Sarajevo Airport car hire

Less than 20 years ago, the only flights arriving in Sarajevo International Airport were filled with humanitarian aid for the war-torn city’s citizens. Nowadays, Bosnia and Herzegovina’s largest airport is a peaceful place which welcomed over 563,000 passengers in 2010. Although the airport lies less than four miles southwest of Sarajevo’s rail station, car hire in Sarajevo Airport is among the few ways to travel directly between the airport and the city centre.

Sarajevo Airport facilities

The newer Terminal B is the location of most airport amenities, but a restaurant is situated on the older terminal building’s first floor. Fast food outlets are situated in Terminal B alongside snack and refreshment bars. Terminal B also includes a huge duty-free shop, a ground floor bank and a post office, and separate VIP lounges for incoming and outgoing passengers. Most direct flights travel to Germany, Scandinavia and other countries that were once part of Yugoslavia. There are no fewer than seven places to compare car hire here.

Sarajevo Airport excursions

The Corridor 5C motorway connects Sarajevo with the Adriatic Sea resort of Ploce to its south and Budapest to its north. The E761 east-to-west motorway is often nicknamed the ‘Dragon of Bosnia’. Sarajevo’s Old Town often feels more like the Middle East than Europe with its elaborate Orthodox churches and mosques. White marble gravestones are the few visible reminders of the recent war in this currently peaceful and vibrant city.

Best time to visit

Visitors to Sarajevo should bring warm clothing, even during the summer months of July and August. Winters may be cold and snowy between December and March, but this is when most visitors come to the nearby ski resorts of Jahorina and Bjelasnica. Temperatures warm up in the late spring months of May and June, and remain pleasant during the autumn months of September and October.

Car rental in Sarajevo Airport

Driving a car rental in Sarajevo Airport can be confusing due to the city’s narrow roads and lack of street signs. Even many locals cannot give specific directions. Purchasing maps from the kiosk adjacent to the Latin Bridge or a bookstore will make driving in Sarajevo a much easier experience. Landmines are still a problem in areas of the city’s outskirts so drivers must stick to paved roads at all times.
