    I find it hilarious those small airports with few gates having gates numbered 203, 307, 504...

      If it's like SKP, it's just a reference to the fact that it's a second floor level gate, they probably bus boarding gates called 101, 102 etc. on the lower floor

      That's correct. There are two levels and the first digit of the gate references the level

      Nothing hilarious is there, but your comment.

    4. Don't you have anything better to do instead of criticizing?

    i think Adria collapse will have a minimal impact on PRN.
    Except for the direct Ljubljana route (which most likely will not be covered anytime soon), the rest will be filled by other airlines.

    Good statistics anyways. I expect growth on VIE-PRN Wizz flights commencing in December.

  5. Great news. I was there last week and I think the Prishtina Airport is really nice. I believe it will continue to grow and become busier.
