      Interesantno da u Puli još nisu prešli brojke iz bivše Jugoslavije

      Will be curious to see how SPU ends the year as I think they will have a good winter.

      PUY is growing on a more diversified base now, not depending on a any single carrier.

    SPU has a steady organic growth and that is a positive thing. I believe the limit will be around 4 million pax and that should be achieved in the next 10 years. What should be done is to reduce seasonality but that is more the the region SPU serves than to the airport itself.
