      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.

      Eurocontrol is asking from providers to lower costs by 2% each year.

    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.
