Eastern Airlines, the (re) startup airline based I bathe USA and Caribbean that started flights a few years back is now heading to Europe! Just last night, the airline announced it would be starting transatlantic services on their 767-200ER from Chicago, Illinois to Sarajevo, Bosnia. The flight will be operated on a once weekly basis seasonally with the flight times as follows:
2D972 ORD 🛫 7:05 PM arrive SJJ 🛬 11:05 AM (Fridays)
2D973 SJJ 🛫 8:00 AM arrive ORD 🛬 12:00 PM (Sundays)
Chicago and Sarajevo are 2 new destinations for eastern air so I’m genuinely curious what their route planning strategy here is. I guess we will see if these flights pay off starting May 28, 2021.
