    Tuzla has handled 535.000, a major record for that tiny airport. Didn't see exyu publish anything about that.

    1. Tuzla Airport's passenger figures have been published each month, along with other developments at the airport. There are three news items per day. If you don't read about it today, perhaps you will read about it tomorrow.
