  5. I believe even better results would be achieved if Orthodox Easter would be declared as a national holiday in Croatia. More tourists would flock.

    1. Zagreb has been handling more than 1 million passengers for 20 years now. So don't know why some would not have believed this a couple of years ago.

  8. I hope the City of Zagreb will finally invest in the rail link to the airport. The millions of people landing there deserve something like that!

    1. To small number of passengers, that train would be empty. Maybe only if that link would be used to connect Velika Gorica and Zagreb

    1. You must keep your bar really low.

    2. Comparing it to the old airport terminal these are giant steps.

    3. Anything compared to the old terminal is a step up.
      And stop exaggerating with the terms like "giant".

    4. When something is a giant leap that should be admitted. Now the bar is set high and ZAG will have to do much more than before. Achieving transatlantic flights would be another giant step.

  11. Is it true that airports in Atlanta and Beijing also celebrate every millionth passenger every third day? That would be nice!

    1. Zagreb can't compare against such giants. We should compare against Tirana or Podgorica.

    2. @Anon 15:16. You are one of those who put the bars really up. Atlanta or Beijing? Read again on which site you are. It is EX-YU- remember and think hard. And then considering all facts- Eg. Beijing being 5,4 times as big as Croatia!! not ZAG but Croatia!! and then think about what you have written and compare it with EX-YU!

    3. @Anon 16:01, you are right, I made a mistake. Within EX-YU it would be appropriate for Osijek to celebrate reaching 100.000 passengers for the first time, or ZAG reaching 4M milestone. But it makes no sense for OSI to celebrate 10.000, then 20.000, then 30.000 passengers.

    4. Of course we should celebrate it. If you have reached 1 million once it does not mean you will do it again. It's a constant fight.

      Delete
    5. You can cut the drama.

    6. The good news is that soon we'll be most likely celebrating 2 millionth passenger at ZAG! Great achievement!

  12. Is it a conflict of interest when your business provides services to the Airport as in those pictures, but then you provide favorable views of that same airport as an aviation analyst?

    ReplyDelete

    1. It is not a conflict of interest. It is just a coincidence. At this moment ZAG deserves favourable views among aviation analysts.

      Delete
    2. It is a conflict of interest. Ask a question: if I write a positive piece about your airport, will I get some material gain from your airport for my other business?

      Delete
  13. You see it one dimensional. His writing is not impacting the business of the airport and thus there is no conflict of interest.

    1. I disagree because he changed his tune the moment he was hired.

    2. Zagreb majorettes are not paid for those events in Zagreb airport. Not a one kuna in all year! Zagreb majorettes has obligation to work events like this by contract with City of Zagreb who pay us to do such a events, and in that contract Zagreb airport is taxatively listed with all events we have to work there. Sometimes we are paid by sport associations for protocol and ceremony. Last year we were paid by Croatian handball association (for European handball championship), Croatian football association, GNK Dinamo, and also by some other institutions (police, Republic of Croatia, Zagreb tourist board, Suzuki, Sokol Marić, SBO etc) to do some hospitality, ceremony and protocol in Zagreb Airport.

      But we are not paid by Zagreb Airport or any other institution connected to Zagreb Airport.

    3. Zagreb Airport does not benefit from anything that Mr. Šćuric is writing and there can not be any conflict of interest there. In fact it is the opposite and in some cases they might have said that he caused damage to their reputation.

  14. In the era of #metoo seeing these young ladies with sticks, well *facepalm

    1. Those "ladies with sticks" are Zagreb majorettes the well known and symbol of Zagreb and official institution of City of Zagreb.

    3. It's frustrating how this website does not publish your comments, it's very random (does not seem to be an admin issue as such).

      In reply to the above, I wanted to clarify that I am not mocking anyone or anything, but quite to the contrary. I think in this day and age it looks like objectification of women to have scantily clad young women pointing sticks upwards at ceremonies like these, I think it's in poor taste, that's all. If you disagree, well it may just, may just be because you're a man.

      Also, is it too much to ask to have a discussion about anything without bringing one's identity into discussion. In reply to you, I simply want to say that if you think majorettes have been invented or created in Zagreb first then you're way behind in reading:

      I hope my comment gets published this time.
