EX-YU airport race 2013

Seven EX-YU airports break all time record in 2013

Most airports in the former Yugoslavia ended 2013 on a high. With exception to Zagreb, the top ten busiest airports all recorded passenger growth. While the leader board remained mostly unchanged in 2013, with only Split outperforming Dubrovnik compared to 2012, an impressive seven airports managed to see record breaking figures. They include Belgrade, Pristina, Split, Dubrovnik, Tivat, Podgorica and Sarajevo. Unlike 2012, both Ljubljana and Sarajevo rebounded and returned to growth. Bosnia and Herzegovina’s busiest airport is now closing in on Podgorica and with several new routes already lined up for 2014 it will hope to overtake it.

As has been the case these past few years, Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport was the busiest in the former Yugoslavia. In 2014 it hopes to become the fastest growing capital city airport in Europe, according to its management. Zagreb, which saw a dip in numbers primarily due to Croatia Airlines’ service reductions and several industrial actions, which hit the airport during the year, estimates it will see growth of 8% in 2014. During this year, Pristina, which saw its busiest year on record in 2013, will have to continue to deal with the fallout of Belle Air Europe’s demise. Dubrovnik Airport estimates numbers will grow 1.7% in 2014 while Ljubljana will continue its recovery with passenger numbers expected to improve 7%.

In 2013, Tivat Airport was the fastest growing airport in the former Yugoslavia out of the top ten busiest. The airport has already announced it no longer has the capacity to serve such large amounts of passengers during the summer, with an expansion of its facilities needed in the near future. Similarly, Skopje saw impressive growth during the year but missed the one million passenger mark due to poor visibility which engulfed the city during December, forcing flights to divert.

Below you can review the top ten busiest airports in the former Yugoslavia in 2013.

  1. What an amazing news! Good luck to all airports in 2014.

    ,, The airport has already announced it no longer has capacity to serve such large amounts of passangers'' does this mean that Ryanair will not be able to open routes from Tivat?

    1. hardly anyone will be able to open new routes from TIV. they'll have to start expansion ASAP

    2. There is a solution: Increase capacity!
      What means bigger aircraft ,more seats per flight.

    3. FR will not start operations from LYTV before the S16 due to lack of capacity of the terminal building. It is planned to open a new terminal building in S16.The public tender for the terminal building project is underway.

    4. interesting enough, TIV can break 1 mil this year, if they have 14% rise, which is highly possible. TGD won't reach 1 mil in next 3 to 4 years

    1. Kosovo has a huge Albanian Diaspora in Swiss, Italy, USA, Germany, Austria, UK & other western European countries. So its logical that Kosovo Albanians use PRN instead of SKP or BEG.

    2. Not to mention a large international presence there, Eulex, Kfor administrators going back and forth.

    3. I would say that some people who would prefer to take a drive instead of flying to Western Europe are not willing to do so because it involves transiting Serbia, for a number of different reasons. This is not the case with other countries, such as Turkey, Bulgaria or Macedonia.

      Actually, 2:24 is quite correct, however this can only relate to the border areas, as virtually no one lives there (on the Serbian side).

  8. Belgrade airport still will be #1 in the Ex-Yu for a long time but all croatian airport broke since long 6.000.000 pax per year and by far the most important air transport trend in the region. Next target this year: 7.000.000 pax

    2. Pristina might overtake Zagreb in a few years time.

      Delete
    3. Well, my guess is that this number would go down by half a million or so if they decided to shut down ZAG for good as of tomorrow. There is huge demand for flights to the Croatian coast, of course mostly during summer schedule. I don't think many of those tourists would particularly miss Zagreb if their connection was through some other city, in Croatia, or abroad.

      In other words, Croatia will always get millions of pax, with or without OU, but OU's future is instrumental for ZAGs further development. No one else is going to use the airport as a hub, apart from OU.

      Delete
    4. Well, the thing is that any city in the world has some optimal number of passengers. For the numbers to grow more there needs to be a local carrier offering connections. Naturally if OU goes belly up others will step in and take over. But that means that Zagreb will be stuck at around 2.2 million for the next few years.

      Delete
    5. Haha, really, than tell us optimal numbers for other EX-YU airports... Croatia has a huge potential, but, it's ok, feel free to write whatever you want to happen, time will tell...

      Delete
    6. OU only hope is if they move their hub to Split airport and try to create some kind of transit hub.
      Of course that would demand a bigger airport but if they had done that in the past today they would be a profitable airline.
      Example of that is TK.
      They could made their transit hub Ankara, but how much people would transit in Ankara.

    7. is that 6,000,000 pax for all Croatian airports last year?
      what about other countries?

      Delete
    8. Croatia had around 6.5 million pax last year and is expected to handle around 7.1 million in 2014 and 8 million in 2015.

      2014 projections

      Zagreb - 2.55 million
      Split - 1.72 million
      Dubrovnik - 1.6 million
      Zadar - 550 000
      Pula - 420 000
      Rijeka - 175 000
      Osijek - 35 000
      Brac - 50 000 (if it remains open)


      2014 projections

      Zagreb -3.0 million (number of new carriers arriving to Zagreb from 21/22 in 2014 to 25/26 in 2015)
      Split - 1.87 million
      Dubrovnik - 1.7 million
      Zadar - 620 000
      Pula - 500 000

    9. Thanks for the numbers, what about Bosnia and Serbia what are their total numbers for all the airports?

      Delete
    10. 2013
      BEG
      3.54 million
      2014
      BEG 4+ million
      These numbers are actually realistic, unlike those for ZAG. ZAG isn't seeing 3 million any time soon.

      Delete
    11. Well, Belgrade needs at least 13% monthly growth in order to reach 4 million. If they keep growing at this rate they will easily reach 4.2 to 4.3 million passengers in 2014.

      Delete
    12. Yeah, I know, so I put 4+, meaning it will be above 4 million. Because of the big changes that are happening at BEG, it really is difficult to see what will happen in the next 11 months, so I gave a conservative number. January was 29% increase, so we might even see 4.5 million if we are extremely lucky.

      Delete
    13. Well, my guess is that February will be just as impressive, if not more, since the airport handled only 173.000 passengers last year.
      It's March and onwards that will be interesting to follow as these months will define how successful the airport will be. My guess is that Belgrade airport will record growth between 15% and 20% primarily because of Air Serbia's booming numbers. Competition will do ok, JU's partners better than others.

      And you know that cause you know how Zagreb Airport operates, or Croatia for that matter.

      Give me a brake on your nationalist crap, you're hatred of Croatia and all things Croatia are clearly evident on this blog, on any other blog or forum you'd be laughed or baned long time ago, wonder why admin lets you post crap when you post such hatred.

      Reason why many in Croatia still hold hatred of Serbs if cause of guys like you, you make it very difficult for anyone to reconcile when first thing they want to do is flatten your face with a steamroller.

      If you hate Croatia please stop posting on Croatian matters, it'll be best for you, clearly you get all excited and angry that Croatia is doing so well.

      Delete
    15. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that such a huge increase at ZAG can only be achieved after an increase in capacity. Right now, there are mostly rumors of potential airlines that might fly to ZAG.

      Every day there are skeptical comments about JU, are those nationalist crap too? (skepticism about JU is justified too) Give me a break. Instead of replying with facts when I expressed skepticism, you immediately chose to attack my motives, instead of giving a real reply to comment. It shows how weak your arguments are.

      I don't hate Croatia. I have visited Croatia, had a good time. So please, give me a valid, logical response to my comments and I will withdraw my skepticism about ZAG's future.

    1. That's already more realistic, reminds me of Tbilisi.

    2. What happened to the project that included 10 airbridges and those extra two that were requested by OU? I guess this is what Zagreb needs. It's nice to see the French dropped the whole Balkan megalomania.

      Delete
    3. This is apparently another version of the plan. Nobody speaks about it, but considering Zagreb numbers and potential...I don't know...
      The truth is that nobody has a clue of what the French will build. This is interesting material for journalist (real reporters, not regime slaves). It would be interesting to get some comment on this picture by croatian Ministry and the French management. Greetings from Istra.

      Delete
    4. Again, what potential? Croatians here frequently speak about "potential" for ZAG, but it just recorded YoY decrease, while BEG is surging YoY at an unprecedentat pace. So, what potential? OU will keep decreasing frequencies, while JU is expanding rapidly and will take over a huge percentage of the overall Balkan connecting market (especially to East). So, whatbis this ZAG potential you speak of? It doesn't have a strategic location and it's main carrier (responsible for 60% ofmthe overall traffic) is in huge problems. Low cost carriers swarming in do not require a huge, expensive terminal in any case.

      Delete
    5. Thanks for sharing it with us! So have the French said that it will be a possible solution? Aren't they obliged by law to present the project they are going to build?

      Delete
    6. Well, technically it's the same terminal just phase 0.5 :D

      Delete
    7. I personally believe this is the right size for the terminal. After all, if there is any need in the future they can always add more gates or whatever. The most important factor here will be Croatia Airlines. If they keep on removing jet aircraft (Airbuses that is) then there is absolutely no need for additional gates.

      Delete
    8. Anonymus 2:41...
      Calm down, I was and still am very sceptical about Zagreb potential, so I don't get your comment. Since you are so sure about Bg and JU, there is no need to discuss about it. It is so funny how people react without knowing actually what I think about OU and Zg. It is just like somebody hits you and you panically react. Chill out, please.
      And know more seriously...
      I don/t know if they have to unveil their plans. This is a picture that nobody is showing in cro. Maybe some experts know something about it.

      Delete
    9. But if no one is showing it in Croatia where and when did it surface on the internet?
      Did they say how many bus gates it will have?

      Delete
    10. A guy who showed this picture on the net didn't say where he got it from, highly doubt that this will be built... So, if Zagreb failed 1.8 percent this year, does it mean that it'll never grow again as some say... OU is the problem and it needs to be fixed as soon as possible!

    13. No this was the original proposal by the French at the negotiations in October, to revise and scale down the terminal, Minster objected and demanded that original plans agreed on are respected.

      To which developers maid a compromise of 8 gates, but than OU objected and demanded extra two gates for themselves, to which French developers said ok, but you better deliver if we gonna invest extra funds for this as well. #

      Terminal will have 10 passenger boarding bridges or 12, full profile as planned if numbers at Zagreb airport exceed expectations which are 3.3 million by the end of 2016, and all indications are airport will handle around 3.55 million by end of 2016.

      Currently there are 12 operators at Zagreb airport, full service operations, by the year's end there'll be 22 and by the end of 2015 this number is expected to be around 25/26 at least or 28-30 if all goes well.

    14. Lets see credible sources for at least five of those airlines, besides Germanwings, Etihad Regional, and KLM.

      Delete
    15. Plus, only KLM might use the airbridge among the three that have announced flights. Etihad Regional's SAAB is too small while Germanwings uses remote stands unless the airport gives them to use them almost free of charge- something I doubt.

      If Zagreb wants to attract more lowcost carriers then I do not see why they need 12 gates. Belgrade has 16 gates and they are not yet using them all despite having 3.5 million passengers. Maybe they should not rush.

  11. Belgrade had an impressive start this year. Then again, last January was pretty bad. I am sure that February numbers will remain as impressive as those two months have been traditionally the slowest.
    What will be interesting to see is how the airport deals with the large increase in passenger numbers that will happen this summer. If they keep this up then we might see even more passengers than 4 million, especially when the A320s join the fleet.

      You are right, usually it has more passengers however Turkish Airlines has a special configuration because they are using them on long and thin African routes. If I am not mistaken they have a large business class section and not that many seats in economy class.

They will only have 15 aircraft after all A32x family are delivered and for a growing airline, does it not seem abit too small? I presume they are getting more ATR's. Could some Bombardier Cseries or Embraer Ejets be on the cards?

    1. There's a rumored Etihad's purchase of 16 ATR 72s, which are supposedly to be split 8:8 between Air Serbia and Etihad Regional (ex Darwin).

      Delete
    2. I actually wouldn't be surprised if Air Serbia's future fleet consists mostly of A319s and A320s. Destinations such as Thessaloniki, Bucharest or Skopje will be exclusively served by the Airbuses despite the fact that they could be perfectly served by Atrs. I could see the airline keep a certain number of turboprops for smaller markets where an A319 might be an overkill or on destinations where the Airbuses are needed on a seasonal basis.
      More things will be clear this summer season and it will be interesting to see which destinations will become prime candidates for upgrades or additional frequencies. My guess is that next winter Bucharest might go back to an Atr while Prague gets the Airbus. Naturally the best case scenario will be for the airline to lease another A319 and deploy it on some routes which can clearly sustain additional frequencies.
      As Air Serbia's network grows, more European destinations could become A320 candidates (London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Dusseldorf...).

      Delete
    3. Nemjee, LHR already is to be served with A320, together with DUS. Services to AB hub cities will most likely see the maximum available seats on sale, meaning they will be served with an A320.

      Exempt is of course VIE, as it is no longer as important Air Berlin hub as it used to be.- so it will remain an ATR service. In case there is a huge demand, it will be upgraded though.

      Delete
    4. Are you sure about Dusseldorf? JU's website shows it as an A319 for the summer season. However, it will be interesting to see if it will be Berlin or Dusseldorf to get it first.

  18. Any way of also getting transit pax at eack airport and destination pax at each airport? Seeing as destination pax are more valuable to the economy due to their spending on food, hotels etc ... Rather then transit who just pax the airport tax.

    1. You need to see the bigger picture. What do transit pax give you besides the airport tax you mentioned:
      - more flights (the more pax, the more planes flying) and more choice for Belgrade residents
      - more flights means more employment: for the airline, for the airport (someone needs to service those pax as well)
      - more flights and more employment means more income for people in Belgrade

    2. I do see the bigger picture, 100 passengers transfering through BEG are not worth as much as 100 passengers comeing to stay for a week in hotels, eat at restaurants, rent cars, and spend money on souveniers.
      100 passenergers going to Dubrovnik for a week have agreater impact on the economy of a country then 100 pax changing airplanes in transit.

    3. Serbia is not a tourist destination so any comparison with tourist-based economies makes no sense. In case of Serbia, correct saying would be: 'better to have 100 connecting pax and earn some extra money for the state-owned carrier, than to have only 50 domestic pax'.

    5. So it does not matter if Croatia Airlines lose $2 million a year as long as they bring in passengers who spend $200 million a year.
      Now maybe those who are always comparing what Zag does and what BEG does will see how little that matters.
      BEG wants to make money as a transit location for flights from Europe to Middle East.
      Croatia wants to bring in passengers to keep them in the country as long as they can to earn money from them in other businesses, both have a different market to fill.
      Croatia succeeded in rebranding itself as a "IN" destination and from the increasing number of tourists each year they were very successful. Now BEG has to brand itself as an efficient HUB for transit passengers. time will tell if it is able to be as successful as Croatia was.

    6. It matters. Losing money is never good, especially if it's taxpayers money.

      For tourists who wish to visit Croatia, what matters is there are flights. Whether these flights are operated by OU or someone else is irrelevant, especially in the EU. Even if there was no OU, tourists would still arrive and spend money. Hence there are no excuses for losing money.

      Considering JU's business model, they have even less reasons to exist if they cannot be profitable.

      And in both cases, state may sacrifice a million or two per year for the sake of aviation sector and several hundred jobs. But losing tens of millions on regular basis requires either serious changes or liquidation.

  20. Ljudi,ima li iko konkretne,proverene i pouzdane informacije sta se ceka sa YU APD i YU APA???
    Da li su iznajmljene A320?

    Bez spekulacija i zluradih komentara ako je moguce.

    Zasto je jedan ATR izbacen iz saobracaja?Vidim da su Bec i Sarajevo obavljeni danas sa 737.

    1. Mozda zato sto je otisao na redovno odrzavanje, farbanje itd.

    2. YU-APA (ako je to uopšte njegova nova registracija) će verovatno prvo da ode do Minhena ili Dizeldorfa na unutrašnje sređivanje . Verovatno krajem ovog meseca će da stigne. Toliko je otprilike i ostalima trebalo nakon što budu ofarbani.

      Slike YU-APD ili VT-VJM u AirSerbia bojama još nema,pa je i pitanje da li se odustalo od njega ili..

      Delete
    3. Koliko znam , još nema ni traga od A320.
      Što se tiče YU-APA, on je trenutno u OSR (Ostravi) i tamo je ofarban. Što se tiče enterijera - ne znam da li je odrađen.
      YU-ALO je "izbačen" iz saobraćaja, zato što su ga poslali na održavanje, farbanje u novu boju i sređivanje unutrašnjosti.
      Tivat je takođe obavljen danas sa 737.

    4. Zanimljivo je da je taj VT-VJM ustvari CJ (corporate jet) verzija A319-ke. Po specifikacijama, taj avion ima dolet od 12000 kilometara. Da li Air Serbia stvarno ima potrebu za takvim avionom?

      Delete
    5. Corporate Jet nema 120 sedista, tako da nece imati dolet koji si naveo. Vise sedista, veza tezina payload-a manji dolet. Simple as that

      Delete
    6. Taj veliki dolet se ostvaruje ugradnjom posebnih, dodatnih rezervoara u prtljažni prostor. Kada se avion preradi u komercijalnu verziju, ti rezervoari se valjda izbacuju...

    7. The reservoirs are there to stay, it'll become A319-100LR, 10.400km range.

  21. And this is thanks to the Ceo Kreme Kucko only has eyes for Brussels I just heard they got rid of their Station Manager there the only one that was solving the airlines problems there so from now on you can better fly KLM as they have their own staff

  23. SNC Lavalin companies interested in the expansion of the airport in Tivat. "Municipality of Tivat ready to within the legal framework and its competence, provide all necessary information and assistance to this renowned company in finding an adequate solution for the future development and expansion of the airport in Tivat, " it was announced from the Tivat local government leaders after talks with SNC Lavalin.

    1. They are really good, I think they took over Athens airport a few weeks ago. They seem to be expanding in the region.
      Let's hope they also fix the runway/apron lines. According to international aviation standards the width has to be 60 cm while in Tivat it's only 30. According to airport officials they did it because they did not have enough paint. lol
