      New CEO, politically install, with no experience in air business at all (not a one second in air business), instead of previous CEO who was not elected again by Government.

      As long as people are so stupid in the region and give their votes to those peoples, there is no need to whine. Pack your stuff and leave. Ok soon no one will be left to leave :D

    The base is very low. Looking at the absolute numbers here is better. On Average it were 3 flights including general aviation.

    Let Air Serbia to fly to Zadar. It would definitely boost the numbers during off-peak. Diaspora would fly year round.

    This decrease has nothing to do with new CEO. The main reason is Rynaiar and its fewer flight in the month of November.
