    BEG- 333,989
    ZAG - 191,276
    SKP - 145,592

      So Zagreb-Belgrade difference of 142.000 is so more than 91.000 between Zagreb and Ljubljana?

    6. Anonymous03:12

      Macedonia has 2 million population and skopje has 850 thousand people or 900
      Belgrade has almost 2 million population,and Serbia has 6.5 million passengers(not including Repcublic of Kosova)
      of course Serbia will have double passengers,
      if skopje starts seasonal flights direct to jfk with Turkish airlines aircrafts from may 15 to October 15 SKOPJE WILL HAVE 3.5 MILION PASSENGERS A YEAR,U HAVE 1 MILION ALBANIAN LIVE IN USA AND 200K IN CANNADA THEY READY TO COME SKOPJE AND CONNECT WITH PRISHTINA AND TIRANA AFTER
