Trends in air traffic between the western Balkans and north eastern Italy

by Michele Tempera


The air transport sector in the Balkans has grown significantly in recent years in terms of business turnover, taking a major step forward. The region has experienced a quantitative increase in the number of civilian flights (i.e. flights transporting passengers and freight). The recent growth in numbers of passengers and airline connections in the region is the result of an economic trend common to all Balkan countries, that is, the orientation of domestic markets towards the EU’s founding members. Thus the dynamics described above have led to an increase in airport connections. Currently there are more than 100 flights per week between Albania and northeastern Italy, specifically between Tirana and Venice, Bologna, Rimini, Trieste, Treviso, Verona and Forlì.
