EX-YU airport race 2013

Seven EX-YU airports break all time record in 2013

Most airports in the former Yugoslavia ended 2013 on a high. With exception to Zagreb, the top ten busiest airports all recorded passenger growth. While the leader board remained mostly unchanged in 2013, with only Split outperforming Dubrovnik compared to 2012, an impressive seven airports managed to see record breaking figures. They include Belgrade, Pristina, Split, Dubrovnik, Tivat, Podgorica and Sarajevo. Unlike 2012, both Ljubljana and Sarajevo rebounded and returned to growth. Bosnia and Herzegovina’s busiest airport is now closing in on Podgorica and with several new routes already lined up for 2014 it will hope to overtake it.

As has been the case these past few years, Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport was the busiest in the former Yugoslavia. In 2014 it hopes to become the fastest growing capital city airport in Europe, according to its management. Zagreb, which saw a dip in numbers primarily due to Croatia Airlines’ service reductions and several industrial actions, which hit the airport during the year, estimates it will see growth of 8% in 2014. During this year, Pristina, which saw its busiest year on record in 2013, will have to continue to deal with the fallout of Belle Air Europe’s demise. Dubrovnik Airport estimates numbers will grow 1.7% in 2014 while Ljubljana will continue its recovery with passenger numbers expected to improve 7%.

In 2013, Tivat Airport was the fastest growing airport in the former Yugoslavia out of the top ten busiest. The airport has already announced it no longer has the capacity to serve such large amounts of passengers during the summer, with an expansion of its facilities needed in the near future. Similarly, Skopje saw impressive growth during the year but missed the one million passenger mark due to poor visibility which engulfed the city during December, forcing flights to divert.

Below you can review the top ten busiest airports in the former Yugoslavia in 2013.
