  1. Nis ocigledno ce postati lider za niskobudzetne aerodrome Srbije. Prvenstveno ovde mislim na za sada jos neotvorene. Kraljevacku Moravu, i Uzicke Ponikve. Da bi u drzavi Srbiji juzno od Save i Dunava (van Beograda) moglo da se leti i budu samo odrzivi aerodromi, jedina mogucnost su nisko budzetne avio kompanije. Veoma nizak standard ljudi ima sansu jedino sa LCC prevoznicima. Zaprvvo Nis je primer. Mada ulaganje od par stotina hiljada evra je stvarno, srvarno tako skromno za pocetak rada ovog "ne Evropskog" terminala. Koji je vise muzejski eksponat... Zavrsetkom auto puteva 10, 11, i Moravskog Koridora stvaraju se uslovi da sva mesta udaljena go 120 kilometara od navedenih aerodroma mog stici do terminala na let do najvise 60 minuta. Samim tim dolazak ljudi iz sveta i odlazak u svet bice savim lako. Za razliku do sada. Razvijena mreza auto puteva i bar cetiri comercijalna aerodroma jeste minimum za buducnost drzave Srbije.
    Srecna vam Nova 2017 Godina.
    Iz Kraljeva, Radovan.
