  1. This is very good. I expected growth to be at the same level as in the previous two months but it was better.

    1. August was particularly strong as we had the Iranian widebodies, more charters than last year and easyJet with a lot of extra frequencies. I suppose we will see a very strong September as well.

    2. Sva je prilika da ce biti ispod 5.8 miliona samo se i dalje prepricava bajka direktora.

    3. Могуће да они знају нешто што ми не знамо. Да би стигли до 5.8 фали нам још 216.000 путника што и није тако пуно.

    4. Ове године тешко да ће доћи до 6 милиона, осим ако није чудо.

    5. Ја мислим да ће бити између 5.7 и 5.8. Септембар ми се чини као релативно добар и ЈУ се мање више стабилизовала.

    6. Да, септембар је и даље јак месец. И даље се надам да ћу видјети ЈУ са више чартер летова на више егзотичних локација.

    1. Isn't it correct to write "Bravo Beograde," in standard Serbian and "Bravo Hrvatsko" in standard Croatian?

      Delete
    2. It depends what the author wanted to say... if he/she wanted to say "bravo za Beograd" and abbreviated it is to "bravo beograd", i'd say that's a fair use case. Or you can use vocativ and say "bravo, Beograde" (don't forget a comma). The latter is probably the only proper form for formal written Serbian... however, this is a blog.
      As far as Hrvatska, I'm actually not sure you'd conjugate it... my gut tells me in standard Serbian, you'd say "bravo, Hrvatsko", but in Croatian it may be different, i.e., "bravo, Hrvatska". Just like some people would say "bravo, Luko" and some would say "bravo, Luka" (and only the former is correct in Serbian, but in Croatian, both may be acceptable, I'm not 100% sure).
      but those are nits, my friend. I wouldn't worry about those, as long as you understand what the author wanted to say. and enjoy the blog:)

    1. Absolutely no way.
      5,8 million is a realistic goal.

  7. BEG continues to lead the Balkan airports in growth, new airlines and new routes.
    Can't wait for a fantastic 2019 and all the surprises that will bring to us!

  8. September for Belgrade Airport won't be so successive as July and August. Mahan Air and Qeshm Air have stopped flying, Etihad Airways returns to one daily flight, Air Serbia is gonna drop Malta and goes overall deeply in minus...

    1. Qeshm Air has not stopped flying.

      Delete
    2. To the contrary, they have, starting from today.

    3. LH cancelled its evening flight to Belgrade last Saturday. Does that mean the route is supended? No.

      Delete
    4. Regarding LH you are right, but Qeshm Air certainly won't fly to Belgrade anymore this summer season.

      Delete
    5. What else does the crystal ball say?

      Delete
    6. Which evening flight are you referring to guys?

      Delete
    7. Qeshm Air have officially cancelled flights, that's all.

      Delete
    8. Where is the official statement?

      Delete
    9. Mahan's and Qeshm's cancellations are sort of political issue rather than commercial, something to do with US sanctions against Iran. And it's a pity because all these flights from Tehran were full to the last seat, Belgrade was conquered by Iranians.

      Delete
    10. I love when our neighbours come here all worried and caring. Sorry but Qeshm news is...fake news, wishful thinking.

  9. The numbers would be even higher if TK was allowed for 330 or add the 3rd flight.
