    I've watched this ( TV show where director of Sarajevo Airport was one of the guests. The guy didn't say anything smart or special. It was hard to understand what he is trying to say (same as politicians usually). Their taxes are quite high: for departure passenger it's 31eur (18 to airport, 10 to government and 3 for something else).

    Anyway, it's great to see increase but lets be honest, Sarajevo has much bigger potential and it's the fault of the government and management because they have poor results.

      True. Sarajevo airport should have 2-3 million passengers yearly. Current result is still disappointing.
