    In 2017, SJJ served 957,971 passengers. This year the 1 millionth mark is inevitable. BRAVO!

    Great result Sarajevo, and all that without neither Wizz, Ryan or Easy Jet super-cheap flights being present (apart from Wizz - Budapest). I would love to see how big the growth would be with some of the low-cost flights that Podgorica, or Skopje has. Keep up the good work. :)

      And how bad is SJJ compared to the rest?

  6. Capital city airport without flights to Paris, Rome, Madrid, Berlin, Athens, Prague, Warsaw? It's shameful! (OK for London I understand, as still visas are needed for a trip)

      Athens, Prague, Warsaw and Madrid aren't really the destinations that SJJ needs. They need Amsterdam and Frankfurt ASAP.
