Niš Constantine the Great Airport handled its 100.000th passenger yesterday, the first time it has managed to do so in a single year. Miljana Todorović from the town of Leskovac was the 100.000th traveller, arriving on a Wizz Air flight from Eindhoven. The airport has recorded an average growth rate of over 250% this year after Wizz Air and Ryanair introduced new services to the city. Furthermore, Turkish Airlines commenced scheduled cargo flights from Istanbul to Niš. Next year, Swiss International Air Lines will launch operations from Zurich to the southeast Serbian city. The airport's management initially estimated Niš would welcome some 100.000 passengers in 2016, however, this figure has now been surpassed. In 2017, the airport expects to begin work on expanding its terminal building and handling 300.000 travellers.
