Mostar International Airport (Bosnian: Međunarodni aerodrom Mostar/Међународни аеродром Мостар, Croatian: Međunarodna zračna luka Mostar; (IATA: OMO, ICAO: LQMO)) is an airport near Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina, situated in the village of Ortiješ, 4 NM (7.4 km; 4.6 mi) southeast of Mostar's railway station.
Mostar Airport was opened for civilian air traffic in 1965 for domestic flights.
In 1984, the airport became international and was announced as an alternative to Sarajevo International Airport during the 1984 Winter Olympics. The airport is also popular for people making the pilgrimage to nearby Međugorje.
In 2012, the company had a twofold increase in traffic, making it the second busiest in the Bosnia and Herzegovina right after the Sarajevo International Airport.
Further investments are planned, which include: renovating and expanding terminal building, expanding the apron (platform), modernising equipment, possible expanding of runway and further education of airport staff in Italy, also rebuilding fuel tanks (which were destroyed during the Bosnian War) and hangars for private planes and for planes of the Secondary Traffic school of Mostar which uses the airport for flight school and educating students for future work. Mostar International Airport is considering a possible strategic partnership with investors who are interested in this company or, alternatively, a privatization or concession.
Mistral Air operate most of the flights to and from Mostar International Airport, followed by Meridiana and Livingston. It was announced that Mistral Air would operate scheduled flights between Mostar and Rome from April 2014 to November 2014.
