    Great news for ZAG and im glad that OU is remaining as the largest airline. Hopefully they can push to have at least 50% share one day. and JU growth in ZAG is surprising and nice to see.

      No, Croatia Airlines has the most seats on sale. With their dire load factor I think Ryanair actually has more passengers

      Croatia Airlines has 42% market share at Zagreb airport. When planned Ryanair growth kicks in, OU will end 2024 ZAG market share percentage in the high 30's.

      dam if its true thats a really bad result to fall that far behind. as long as they finish with a good financial result and increase passanger numbers for the year there will be chance to grow. they will really struggle if not having good financial results and losing market share.

      That's what you said when I told you Air Serbia will have more than 4 million passengers in 2023 and Belgrade will have more than double the passengers of Zagreb. Yet it happened.

      It's not BEG that ZAG needs to worry but PRN which handled more passengers in January.

      PRN: 287.205
      ZAG: 249.578

      This race will be absolutely interesting to follow.

      ZAG will finish with more passangers in the year no worries for that.

      Zagreb has very slow Jan and Feb, even Mar is bit dismal, but hopefully things improve this year. as someone pointed out Zagreb has 20% more seats on offer this year. I don't expect Zagreb airport to grow by 20% but wouldn't discount 11% growth yoy. What ever the case, airport is expected to hit 4.0 million this year, if things go well perhaps 4.1 million or if very well, 4.2 million. Which is ok in my book. Zagreb is close to main destinations in central Europe, Munich, Vienna, Budapest, Milan, Venezia, Zurich, are all few hours drive away. There are no bothers between Croatia and any of the western European countries with in the EU, so any growth is good.

      I bet OHD welcomed more then 10k last month with only four routes.

      So if SKP handled 230k last month that is only 20k pax difference between SKP and ZAG. ZAG has OU plus FR plus many other carriers such as KLM, Air France, Fly Dubai, Eurowings and more LH flights. So very good SKP!

    6. Anonymous13:34

      the 230k could be right because both SKP and OHD had 243k in January with +47%

      230k for SKP in January is not that bad , especially when from 1th january until 10 there was very heavy fog and alot of flights were cancelled , delayed and routed to Sofia,Theseloniki and Pristina

      I guess some 10k pax at least we lost because of the fog.

      I think that the pax are counted at the original airport as well, cause the airline is obligated to bring all passengers to their original airport. In my case when we landed in SKG we were transported to SKP airport and from there on we found our ways home.

      Here we go again with SKP being number 2. 1 sole airport and relies on Albanian diaspora. There is just nothing more to say. Even LH reduced its much "anticipated" SKP flights.

      @22:59 have you ever steped near Skopje Airport to see who flies? How do you know that skp relies on Albanian diaspora? Or you are just jelous that we have new records every month?

      @12:42 Yes but the airline is obligated to bring the pax to the original destination. Thats why i think that we may be counted as well idk.
