  2. As the 3rd biggest agglomeration in former Yugsolavia,
    Sarajevo has a potential of being 3rd busiest airport in Ex Yu,
    due to its economic (4th place in Ex Yu) and tourism potential.

    However, this and all former managements are destroying the
    whole future and the potential which Sarajevo has. Shame on that.
