  1. So, LJU is just ahead of PRN in terms of passengers for October 2017 since the latter handled ~150,000 (a very mild growth).

  2. Wow, great! So they need an average of ~110k in Nov, Dec to meet the record. Is it possible based on the average for these two months (+avg. growth)?

    2. Eurostat database says otherwise:

    3. I assume LJU knows its own numbers better than Eurostat. You can check on their website.

  4. That's great news!

    It's interesting how some were commenting that these increases are not really impressive as 2016's numbers were really poor. I just looked at the data a couple of days ago and in 2016, passenger numbers fell by only about 3%. If you compare these numbers to 2015, the growth is still about 15%, not bad at all.
