    4. The numbers include day before the tournament started and day after it finished because that's when most people arrived and left. The final ended at 11pm on Synday

  6. One destination that seems to be doing really well is FCO. Last night JU arrived packed, this morning it sent an A320 while AZ tonight has maybe 15 empty seats to BEG!

    Shame they didn't add more flights.

    2. For North America it's actually KL.

    3. There used to be 3-4 flights daily couple of years back between BEG and FCO and now it is down to 1-3 depending on the season and day. This route was only victim of Etihad engagement with AZ as European Commission found this route to be only one where the deal could seriously hamper competition and required some slots to be freed for competitors.

    4. BEG FCO is double daily right now, year round.

  7. Prelepo je gledati za Beograd velike cifre putnika. Veliki sam optimista da ce Nikola Tesla u iducih nekoliko godina daleko prevazilaziti ove sada velike brojke putnika. Kroz iducih petnaset godina, broj ptnika ce biti izmedju 40 i 50 hiljada u proseku na dnevnom nivou u toku jedne godine. Za pesimiste ovi brojevi su utopija... Niti ce Beogradski aerodrom biti prepoznat u odnosu sa danasnjim, niti Srbija biti na ovom ekonomskom nivou... Zivot se menja.
    Mir je osnovni uslov, sto se Srbije tice.
    Pozdrav iz Sidneja.

    1. Mozda se iz Sidneja tako vidi, ali na terenu je mnogo manje razloga za toliki optimizam.

    2. Uvek je tako i bilo. Bar je nama iz inostranstva, koji dolazimo u domovinu jednom ili dva puta godisnje, lakse da primetimo svake godine poboljsanje, nego vi koji ste tamo svaki dan. A poboljsanje generalno se primecuje. Budite malo vise optimisti. Nije sve tako crno kako nas domaci mentalitet i nacin razmisljanja prouzrokuje.

    3. Generalno nema mnogo razloga za optimizam, svi trendovi su nam nazalost negativni. Turizam i avio saobracaj su tu pozitivni izuzeci ali nam je baza iz koje rastemo relativno skromna. U svakom slucaju, aerodrom ce sigurno izgledati bolje u narednim godinama i imacemo rast broja letova i putnika, a pogotovo ako dodje do pravog sirenja LCC.

    4. Kad je toliki napredak zasto ste otisli iz Srbije? Tj jos bolje pitanje zasto se ne vratite?
      Odlazak mladih iz Srbije u inostransvo nikada nije bio izrazeniji! Toliko nam je predobro!

      Delete
    5. Ogroman broj mladih koji odlaze predstavlja jedan od razloga rasta avio saobracaja u Srbiji. Nova dijaspora intenzivnije odrzava veze i cesce dolazi.

  8. Zoka strikes again. She announced that the government is working on setting up direct flights from Baku to Belgrade.

    If Sofia can make them work then I don't see why Belgrade couldn't.

    1. Upravo su objavili da su potpisani sporazumi o vazdušnom saobraćaju sa Kanadom i Azerbejdžanom. Baku i Toronto-polećemo!

    2. Excellent comment... Bravo!

    3. The parliaments of all the countries concerned need to ratify these agreements first.

  9. When they see the money made on handling those widebodies maybe Serbian directorate will think twice about banning TK wide-body ops to BEG.

  10. With all that growth from Istanbul I still can not understand how JU failed there! At least they are now code sharing on Atlas Global.

  11. Hm. Hundred thousand in three days while 20.000 people came for basketball. Seems like Belgrade had solud growth overall.
