    I hope it'll happen all year round ;)

    Anyways, does someone know what was the load factor on Air Vallees Rimini flight today? Dornier 328 has 34 pax capacity, so I guess it was over 70% :)

    That is quite good considering that SJJ posted 4,7% increase during 2009 (comparing to 2008).

    Three airports mentioned in this article are merely bouncing back to 2008 numbers.
