  1. I flew out of INI in September on the flight to TIV. Airport is TINY - but the flight was so cheap it was well worth it. LOVED the restaurant overlooking the runway. I will certainly fly again from there when it opens again. Hopefully some minor upgrades to the airport will be made during the downtime.

      Well, when you decide to pay more than €3 airport tax maybe then the airport could afford to improve its facilities.

      Thanks for the info, guys. What about long-haul and flights to Vnukovo?

      Surely this route will work out easily. VKO-INI 2-3 weekly.

  2. Airport in general is small. Cafe is actually quite large. Two flights were on the runway (JU Airbus and a low-cost Airbus flying to gasto-workers with a very high LF).

    The airport is in need of refurbishment naturally and more gates for passport control for incoming flights. Once that is done, things should be good enough.

    I stayed the night in Nis and the locals told me that the flights have had a noticeable positive impact on the local restaurants, pubs and Airbnbs.
