    Congratulations TGD! Impressive results!
    So, apart from INI, SKP has now 2 new tough competitors. It will be very interesting.

      SKP will have 1,8 mio this year, INI just 300 000.
      That is no competition, as especially no "tough competition" .

      Furthermore, TGD does not have any overlap with catchment area of either INI or SKP. So, "competition" is for academic purposes only. Even then, TGD is much closer to SJJ than to either of the mentioned.

      True competition is between DBK and TIV, SKP and PRN...

    So even with Ryanair and Wizzair flights, Podgorica had only 5000 pax more in August than Sarajevo with no real low costers? (apart from that one one Wizz destination to Budapest). Interesting :)
