    DBV added around 40.000 passengers in August while ZAG added 3.500. Shows which airport is the best run in the country. Congrats DBV.

      Given that SPU added 44.237 in August makes your statement false.

  6. So far the Dubrovnik Airport has 2.1 million passengers ,in September last year they got nearly 400K pax,that means they can expect more than 2,5 mil ,October last year 250K pax they could reach those 3 million, will see.

  7. Best managed airport in ex YU

      They are no doubt a very well run airport but I wouldn't call them the best until they reduce seasonality. Of course they can't handle 300.000 passengers in November and February but they can work to getting close to 100.000. Only then will they claim the much coveted title of the best ex-YU airport.

    2. Last year in November Dubrovnik has more than 40K tourists in the city, January and February are the most critical not the November and December.
