Sarajevo Airport handled a total of 74.855 passengers in June, comparing it to the same month last year airport recorded slight decrease of 0,16% or 121 passengers less. The main reason for under performance is the Holy month of Ramadan, when traveling is very minimal due to religious fasting. The airport has recorded a sharp increase in cargo handled.
