  1. Who would have predicted this a few years ago.

    I really wonder how many people who normally use SKP, SOF, or BEG have been using INI. I know of some people who travel from Novi Sad.

    1. I think most of their business comes from Niš area and Southern Serbia. After that the rest of Serbia is next, followed by MK, KO, and BG.

  3. Huh?? 81 aircraft movements including both landings and starts in 1 whole month - that is in average 1 start/landing per day. Does Nis not have GA and other types of air trafflc?

    2. @Alex: No, that is 2 aircraft movements a day including starts and landings - in average 1 take off and 1 landing per day. That is as much as on a minor airfield with a 500m grass runway. That is why I was asking if the number for Nis perhaps includes only commercial traffic.

    4. No hard feelings, Anon 9:29. But be polite or stay off this blog.
      Are you sure with what you are saying? Usually such statistics do include GA etc.

  4. Moje vidjenje jeste malo pozitivnije od pojedinaca sa ex yu portala. Zahvaljujuci Low Cost companijama, usudjujem se da kazem da u iducih osam godina tri aerodroma iz centralne, juzne i zapadne Srbije primati bar deset do dvanaest procenata od broja putnika koji ce sletati i uzletati sa Nikole Tesle godisnje. To je realno ocekivati. Zahvaljujuci LC avio kompanijama. Naravno da je rec o Niskom, Kraljevackom i Uzickom aerodromu. Za to vreme Beogradski ce do sedam miliona. Svakako da kao i do sada nacionalne kompanije ce biti dominantne.
    Da nije lou kostera, ogroman broj aerodroma u Evropi biloibi mrtvi. Bez lou kostera ogroman broj putnika nebo ni video avion. Kamoli leteo.
    Ipak otpor i u jugo istocnoj Evropi slabi u odnosu na skoru proslost. Ko ima malo novca, nikada nebo seo u avion. Ocigledno da monopol se i na tim prostorima povlaci, mada sporo...
