    Fantastic. So overall growth will be around 9% by the end of the year.

    This winter season will be much stronger than last year's.

    Good morning. Any info on cargo movement? I am sure it must be strong. Congratulations Srbija.

      747 freighter just landed in Belgrade. From China I think. (Saw it on flight radar)

      Do you know which airline?

    3. Anonymous12:50

      Flight radar has a playback option (just discovered it)

      Silk Way West Airlines and it came from Frankfurt Hahn. (Not China sorry)

      I think Silk Way is from Azerbaijan and they mostly carry weapons that are bought by Afghanistan's police force.

    I hope BEG would be much more concerning the fact it was Final Four in Belgrade this June. I am rather disappointed because of this. Especially concerning the fact that other airports in region had 15+%

      Final 4 was in May, not June.

      It's not easy to grow in large numbers when you have a big baseline. BEG is in a whole different league compared to other ex-Yu airports. That can't be simply compared.

      Exactly, Belgrade is growing nicely and organically for many years.

      BEG is becoming a true multi-regional hub!

    On July 2 BEG handled it's 2.5 milionth passenger, 8 days earlier than ever before. So in just two days the airport handled some 40.000 passengers!!!!

    Cargo dropped by 25%

    Does anyone know why is that? I had a feeling that cargo is booming, with Etihad and Turkish sending wide bodies often.

    1. Anonymous13:29

      From what did you make that up.

    2. Anonymous13:39

      Last June Serbia sold some tanks to Cameroon and they were carried by plane. That's why there is such a fall this June.

      That said, cargo is up by 19% so far.
