  1. It would be interesting to see how neighboring airports performed.
    PRN, SOF, SKG, TIA, BEG etc. during the same period.

      comparing apples and pears

      SKG jul -69,4%, aug -57.5%
      SOF jul -62,4%, aug -57.1%
      the rest have no numbers for Jul/Aug (BEG has only nr for Jul -84.1%)

      That is actually not too bad for such an airport.

      Might be the second busiest behind BEG this year!

      If TIA continues with this trend, then yes. It will become just right after BEG.
      That said, it seems the negative figures. Interestingly there were very few Serbian arrivals compared to departures in August in SKG:

      Total: 139.877

      SOF had 289,437 passengers in AUG.

    How can a change be 100% negative, when there were passengers. Even 1 passenger would be enough to keep it above 100%. I also sow similar thing in the SPU article last week.
