  1. Impressive. Hope they can beat the 2008 record but it will be tight.

  2. 1.7 million this year, all airport needs to do is 128000 pax this month. Considering November was 123000.

  3. Dec 2016 95.335. + 20% would be 114000. So 2017 will be around 1687000 pax. It will just about surpass the 2008 year!

  4. Is that growth because of Adria ir LCC?

  5. OT via CH Aviation:
