Belgrade tops first quarter passenger numbersThe busiest airports in the former Yugoslavia have held their 2011 end of year positions throughout the first quarter of 2012. Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport remains the busiest in the region with added growth while Zagreb holds on to second place with a slight decrease in passenger numbers. Besides Belgrade, strong growth in the first quarter was recorded at Skopje Alexander the Great Airport and Tivat Airport. On the other hand, the airports in Podgorica, Ljubljana and Sarajevo saw numbers slide.
Priština Airport has also recorded modest growth by handling 292.697 passengers in the first three months. Amongst the smaller airports in the region, Niš Constantine the Great has seen growth exceed 20%, while Mostar Airport is also recording record traffic. Despite performing better in both January and February of 2012, numbers at Banja Luka Airport plunged in March. As a result, the airport handled 230 passengers less than in the same period last year.
