    Well, BNX now generates 4% of ZAG traffic!!
    BNX: 7805
    ZAG: 181.154

    BNX can be considered CRL where ZAG is BRU. Something like this.

    In other words, Zagreb South.

    Or FMM - MUC
    or HHN - FRA

    And Russian flights have not even started. The perctange will increase up to 7%.

    988% from nothing to great result!

  6. I like the comparaison with BRU ans CRN. However the distance beetween Zagreb and Banja Luka stands at 184 kms. Another question is thé rentrer a car offers. Last time I checked, prices where astronomical. Hopefully they will follow the airport development unless it's only Gasto who don't really need to rent a car...

      There are currently pensions in BNX for 18€ double, private room less than 2km away from the airport. Same ones in ZAG are literally double the price.
      This says everything.
