    At least the start of the year was good. I'm sure the end will be as well.

    Belgrade will go back to thriving soon.

    Is February slower because of one less day?

    BEG should be happy to have 3.5 million this year with all the cuts and collapsing demand all around.

      In that case, all Croatian airports should be happy if they reach your pessimistic figure in total as the tourism aviation sector will crash and burn. Of course, everything will partly rebound in June.

    Wonder how many pax BEG would have had if there was no coronavirus in 2020, especially how well things started out, plus the new routes announced for this year.

      By the end of the month the only thing that might end is curfew. The travel ban will likely persist for a few more months, for certain places even longer.

      Agreed. As soon as covid-19 is declared defeated, and a few more months pass, just to be on the safe side. And about a year or so passes to catch up.

  11. I am confident Belgrade will be the first to bounce back in a region.
    By far the city with the greatest potential.
    BEG will reach 10 mil. easily within a few years.
