Venue: Sarajevo International Airport
On the night of Wednesday 9 October until the early hours of Thursday 10 October troops from EUFOR along with their partners from Sarajevo International Airport Security and BiH Border Police, will be carrying out maneuvers at Sarajevo International Airport. This is not a real security issue but purely part of Exercise Quick Response 19, the annual test of EUFOR’s capability to rapidly reinforce its troops in BiH with part of its reserve forces which are held at high-readiness. The exercise runs in cooperation with BiH authorities, the Armed Forces of BiH and the Law Enforcement Agencies and will take place in locations all over BiH between the 7-11 October 2019.
There is no facility to host media representatives at this event but invitations for media opportunities elsewhere are arranged with separate invitations sent out:
- Banja Luka Airport on 10 October 2019
- Professional Day on 11 October 2019
