Greek airline Lumiwings has signed a contract with Bosnia and Herzegovina's Tuzla airport to open a base at the airport and launch six routes, the airport operator said on Friday.

Lumiwings will launch flights to Sweden's Stockholm and Halmstad, Netherlands' Maastricht, Germany's Saarbrucken and Denmark's Esbjerg in December, Tuzla airport said in a press release.

Each of these five routes will be operated twice per week.

The airport said the air carrier will also start a Tuzla-Istanbul service soon without providing further details.
