    A bit surprising that PRN had more passengers in April than in May. Is it possible Easter holidays created this unusual difference?

      Not unusual for an airport whose 90% of traffic is generated by the diaspora who come when they have holidays in their new adopted country, in this case easter.

      Eid and Ramadan was in April too so I think that’s why there were even more passengers

      Not really. Tourism numbers are extremely low to have any meaningful impact on air travel.

      @Anon12:49,
      Can you present to us official numbers of turists in Kosovo, or you are just assuming that numbers are “extremly low”.

      I wonder how exactly they identify a tourist in Kosovo. Many foreigners there are part of Eulex or KFOR and many are actually from Kosovo just visiting friends and family.

    Is there any change in the airport operation? Austrian, Pegasus en Turkish changed their night flights. All aircraft now arrive before 23:00 and do not depart before 06:00. Just a coincidence with the summer schedule or did I miss anything?

    Apart from Condor, will you see other new airlines and destinations in the summer of 2023?
