    Well done BEG! Impressive to see the difference between February and August, just crazy! All this was thanks mainly to W6. That's 300 thousand passengers on top of the list. Hoping to see the A321 soon on the busy routes to MMX, MLA and FCO.

    Reply : ASL share in August traffic was 55%, down 4% compared to last August.

    Does it mean that ASL actually increased its number of passengers because:

    2017 - 641.371*0,55=352.754

    2016 - 590.292*0,59=348.272

    Off course the percentages are not round numbers but it is a good indication that ASL ether had the same number of passengers or a small increase in number of passengers compared to last year?

      ASL was also positive in August, a mere +1%.

      Good, at least there was no fall like the previous two months. Let's hope this trend continues.

    A small increase in number of passengers would be good considering how many cuts they had. I take their charter season was sick :)

  8. All indications of arising businesses at Nikola Tesla, goes toward more invesment of future investor to Belgrade Hub. So good reality and promise future. 😀🗺🇷🇸🌐😀.
