YLW & YYJ YLW has served 2,08 million pax in 2018 while YYJ "only" 2,05 million.

Now we know the exact number for 2018, it's 842,212 passengers that used YXX or an increase of 24,3% over 2017. With an increase of 19% during 2019 over 2018, YXX could reach the 1 million mark.Jump to post
Don't remember seeing this published in here, so here goes.
Beware of the new HR policy. Funny.

They did increase ZAG a while ago by adding an additional weekly frequency. Maybe they feel serving Croatia through ZAG is the best solution. Could be, indeed.
