    1. Without. KFOR controls lower airspace (until recently, there was news the other day) so the sentence regarding Kosovo refers only to the money Eurocontrol got.

  4. exYu - why are you constantly praising only SMATSA? The fact is, that whole SE Axis (Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Macedonia) see same level of increased traffic...

    1. I don't see the information as praise. It was issued as a joint press release by SMATSA and Eurocontrol. Also, I'm not sure where you see news about SMATSA on a constant basis. The last involved a strike threat by one of its unions in December of last year.
