  2. All of this growth whilst Kosovo citizens still need visas to travel to the Schengen region. After the visas are lifted, the passenger number will reach 3m per year. This year should see PRN reach 2m.

    3. Skopje rob so many travelers of Pristina due to low cost flights of Wizzair! lucky Skopje.

    4. When Wizzair or any low cost airline open base or flights to/from PRN, Skopje will loose huge number of passengers from Kosovo diaspora.

  5. Just wow! SJJ will then be forever the worst airport among EX-YU capitals (even among some other non-capitals)...I'm really ashamed to live in Bosnia.SJJ is worst airport and besides the taxes are the biggest.Fun fact:you need transit to reach London and Frankfurt...the only airport among Europe capitals to need so.

    1. Oh come on, stop being so negative about SJJ. I still think it is one of the most underserved by the airlines. I am sure it can achieve the TZL effect soon.
