    Sarajevo will skip Podgorica this year. In my opinion, Sarajevo had to be just after Belgrade and Zagreb!

      Sorry but it's not. Maybe only for those that live in Jeddah. Sarajevo needs better European connection. Zagreb Dubrovnik and Split are all better connected. There are many Bosnians (my self included) that fly to Split/Dubrovnik, then have somebody pick them up and drive over the border. Its often more convenient and cheaper than Sarajevo.

      Sarajevo will probably unfortunately not skip Podgorica, as Podgorica has Ryanair and bunch of lowcost routes that Sarajevo simply doesnt have. But I agree, Sarajevo should be just after Belgrade and Zagreb, due to its size, being a tourist attraction and due to its importance in the region as a city (historically, culturally etc)

      Podgorica had 541k passengers in first 6 months, 10% up from same period in 2018. 141k in June in Podgorica, 11% up.

      So, unlikely that there will be any changes to the leaderbord in 2019...

      It's the Czech Air Force, usually carrying the president, prime minister, governmental or parliamentary delegates, but is at times also used for evacuations of Czech (and other) nationals from places struck with natural or man-made disaster.
