  1. Great news, Montenegro is on fire with all those new flights.
    This is going to easily be another record year for tourism numbers.

    1. We need 12% growth for that. Not impossible, considering all the new services...

  3. I think not many people expected expansion of this magnitude in 2017. TIV also seems to be doing great with new flights to Dubai, Paris Orly etc. and the new carriers are keeping the introduced lines.

    On a less enthusiastic note, these are all bad news for YM :/

  4. And they cannot do this at SKP? Come on, the market is there, I seriously do hope the management doesn't have any political bias about this.

    1. Both sides need to come to an agreement so that either Aegean or Wizz Air can start flights to ATH.
