While most of the limelight is on Belgrade and Zagreb, Pristina Airport has managed to significantly increase passenger numbers over the past few years and is looking stronger than ever in 2013. In addition, the former Yugoslavia’s third busiest airport is set open the doors of its new multi million euro terminal by year’s end, which it hopes will further boost traffic and passenger flow. In the first quarter, Kosovo’s main airport saw its figures boom 19% while in February and March numbers rose over 27%. The airport handled just over 349.000 passengers in the first three months. The growth is being driven, amongst other things, by a strong increase in the number of operated flights, up by 15%.
The busiest carrier at Pristina Airport was Belleair Europe, which was the airline of choice for 64.030 passengers. Germanwings came in second with 36.115 travellers. Adria Airways, which also calls Pristina its home, carried over 20.000 passengers and was the fifth busiest airline at the airport, behind Germania and easyJet but ahead of Darwin Airlines, Edelweiss, Turkish Airlines and Belair. The most popular destination from Pristina was Zurich with a combined total of both inbound and outbound passengers standing at 80.000. The route has seen a 27% boost in passenger numbers so far this year. Istanbul (both Ataturk and Sabiha Gokcen airports) was the second most popular destination with some 40.000 passengers. Dusseldorf and Munich were next in line with over 30.000 travellers.
Meanwhile, construction of the airport’s new terminal and control tower are progressing, with construction to be completed by the end of the year. The new terminal stretches over 45.000 square metres with the building featuring three air bridges. Furthermore, a new apron and car park with the ability to serve 1.750 vehicles are also under construction. Pristina handled 1.527.134 passenger in 2012, up 7.4% on the year before.

Pristina Airport aims for new record in 2013
Pristina Airport has started the year off on a strong note. The airport welcomed 121.754 passengers in January, a notable 10% increase compared to the same month last year. Pristina was the third busiest airport in the former Yugoslavia in 2012 with 1.527.134 passengers passing through its doors, an increase of 7.4% compared to 2011. As a result, Pristina recorded its busiest year on record. Belle Air Europe was the most popular airline operating out of the city, carrying 210.787 passengers. It was followed by Edelweiss on 166.920 passengers and Adria Airways with 154.633 passengers handled in and out of Pristina. Rounding off the top five were Belair and Turkish Airlines.
Pristina Airport’s strong start to the new year is a good indication it will be able to hold onto its position as the third busiest in the EX-YU region, with Dubrovnik and Split hot on its heels. The two Croatian airports anticipate a significant increase in passenger numbers over the summer due to a major boost in the number of airline operations and the added bonus of the country joining the European Union during peak summer season, which is expected to further fuel tourism.
New look for Pristina Airport
Meanwhile, construction of Pristina Airport’s brand new terminal is continuing to progress. The outer structures of the passenger terminal and the new control tower have now been completed with work continuing inside the new buildings. The project is set to be completed by the end of this year. The new terminal stretches over 45.000 square metres with the building featuring three air bridges. Furthermore, a new apron and car park with the ability to serve 1.750 vehicles are also under construction.
During the second quarter of 2012 Prishtina International Airport Adem Jashari saw continued solid growth in the number of passengers.
In April there was an increase of 7% compared to the same period last year with number of passengers being 119,484, in May there was an increase of 10% and nominal number of passengers at 114,140 , in June the increase was also 10% with a nominal number of passengers being 131,983.
In the first half of the year, passenger traffic has increased 7% compared to the same period last year.
The number of operations during the three months of the second quarter was -2, 4 and 5% respectively. The number of operations during the first six months was 1% higher than last year. Cargo traffic during the year to June decreased by 2%.
The number of operations during this period was 3,072.
Companies with the most passengers in descending order were Germanwings, Edelweiss, Belle Air Europe, Adria Airways, Belair, Easyjet, Austrian Airlines and Turkish Airlines, all with over 45,000 passengers served. Destinations with the most passengers carried in the first half of the year were Zurich with 130,988, followed by the two Istanbul airports with a total of 68,812 passengers, Munich with 57,834, Dusseldorf with 56,679 and Vienna with 54,992.

Prishtina has quickly become a success for Slovenia’s Adria Airways, a claim reinforced by the strong results the airline has seen on the recently launched services from the city to Verona in Italy. In the first three weeks since the route was launched on January 28, the airline carried approximately 2.500 passengers and recorded an average cabin occupancy index of 81.6%. “I am very pleased that we have introduced this service and I expect it to satisfy both Kosovo and Italian citizens”, Adria CEO Klemen Bostjancic said at a recent launch party for the service.
Adria is quickly becoming one of the major players at Prishtina Airport. In 2011 the Slovenian national carrier welcomed some 140.000 passengers on board flights to and from Prishtina, making it the second busiest airline at the airport after Edelweiss. This summer, besides Verona, Adria will be operating flights to Frankfurt, Ljubljana and Munich as well.
Adria is the only former Yugoslav airline to have a secondary base outside of its borders. There have also been other attempts by national carriers in the region to open bases in neighboring countries. Montenegro Airlines has attempted several times to open a base in Belgrade since 2006 but so far hasn’t received the green light from local authorities to do so. In 2010, Jat Airways attempted to open a base at Skopje Airport following the collapse of MAT Macedonian Airlines. However, its subsidiary Aeromak was denied a license by the Macedonian Civil Aviation Directorate.
