      And Wizz said it will increase frequencies after it ends Eindhoven.

    2. BCN was a nice option, but W6 already fly 2 flights pw from SKP and 6 from SOF.
      I think the next new route will be LTN.

    3. I think it will be BVA.

    4. BVA or ORY? What do you think about Transavia? INI-ORY

      Delete
    5. Transavia could work especially since they got much more confident after their BEG success. I think Ryanair or Wizz Air are more likely though.

    1. Well it's doable with Zurich and Stockholm operating all year in 2018 plus we might see some new route(s).

  5. The fastest growing airport in the entire ex-Yu region and November figures can be compared to DBV now.
    Easyjet, Pobeda, Lufthansa, just a few of the list of newcomers. LX daily soon.
    Of course, other airports nearby are already jealous.
    Bravo INI!

    5. Razlika DBV INI u nijansama.....
      Oko 1 900 000 nijansi

    6. It doesn't matter. November 2017: DBV pax = INI pax.

      Delete
    7. The most important thing is that the INI growth is organic, coming from local demand, same as SKP, OSI, ZAG or BEG.

      Airports such as PUY, SPU, DBV.. are reliant on summer traffic which might not come back next year. Look at what happened to Turkish airports in the last couple of years.

      You do know that Niš has 260k and Dubrovnik 42k inhabitants?

      Delete
    10. You do know Nis doesn't have a sea?

      Delete
    11. So? Does sea attract people just because? Niš basically started from 0 couple years ago and it's a much bigger city than Dubrovnik, who's tourist season is limited to maybe 6 months a year.

      Delete
    12. Yes but which had a headstart. At this rate I give INI a few years to reach DBV especially since tourists are returning to Tunis, Egypt, Turkey...

    14. Kaze organski.
      Pa promet u 11.mjesecu u DBV je organski..
      E sad, ako bi radili paralelu s INI, INI bi morao imati 100 000 u jednom mjesecu kako bi se mogao usporedjivati s DBV.
      Ipak je Nis 5 puta veci grad od Dubrovnika.
      Ne vidim takav rasplet u sljedecih 20 godina.

    15. INI started only last year, give them a few years. ;)

    16. Seems like Croats despise INI

      Delete
    17. Boy, get a grip.
      We couldn't care less about it. Great, you have an airport with the figures on the rise, but keep your feet on the ground with the unreal statements.

      Delete
    18. Yeah, you don't care so much that you keep on posting here hateful comments for a few days now. ;)

      Delete
    19. There is a difference between hateful and realistic. Now go back to you Church of INI worship.

      Delete
    20. INI pax are from INI and surroundings and DBV pax are mostly from abroad...it is hard to compare as totally different pax structure...

      Delete
  6. Phenomenal growth! Here's to 380.000 passengers next year! :)

    ReplyDelete
  7. 500000 next year!

  8. The best comment on this thread: "Now go back to you Church of INI worship."
    Nis is on to something, and it will only get better and better. That we can all agree on for sure. :)
