      You don't (want) get my point, how many LCC lines do BEG,SKP,TGD,TZL, INI have.Number of them in Sarajevo is MUCH smaller.

      You really are bullsh***ing me...First of all you wrote how SJJ has NO low cost operators to which I replied by writing down the LCCs flying from SJJ (5 LCCs on the top of my head). Now you are completely changing your argument into a comparing one. So lets start: INI has 2 LCCs (Sarajevo still has 5), TGD has 3, SKP has 3 etc. So both of your arguments are complete and utter bulls* as none of them are correct. Here's an advice, next time you want to prove a point, better get your figures straight.

      You don't understand me.Sarajevo is one of the rare "bright sides in Bosnia and Herzegovina".We(Bosnia) are a country who has suffered alot in the past,so i'm just saying how Sarajevo airport is a positive side to our country.It's growing slowly,sooner or later,there will be flights to cities like London,Paris,etc etc.Maybe even Flybosnia could take that role

    Is there any insight on how Sarajevo city is exploiting its potential as a winter sports destination?
