South East Europe: EX-YU Airports Lagging In Connectivity

In partnership with:

EX-YUThe countries of the former Yugoslavia offer fewer connections to passengers travelling by air, both direct and indirect, compared to their European rivals, according to Airport Council International’s (ACI) latest connectivity report. Connectivity is the metric by which airports live – the more connected an airport is to the wider world, the more attractive it becomes to its users and the greater the value it provides to the community and local, regional or national economy it serves.

The 2015 report looks at Europe’s total airport connectivity (direct and indirect), onward connectivity from Europe and hub connectivity. In essence, the report defines the connectivity of an airport as the weighted number of weekly flights available from that airport to non-stop destinations and to one-stop destinations involving flights of the same airline or of two airlines in an alliance or codeshare.

According to the report, Macedonia has the lowest national connectivity level of all former Yugoslav countries and one of the lowest in Europe, ahead of only Slovakia and Monaco. Although Macedonia has seen significant growth in passenger numbers over the past decade, as well as strong government support for air travel, the dominance of low cost carriers has impacted its report figures. Within the EX-YU region, Macedonia is followed by Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and then Slovenia.
