The conference in Ljubljana has demonstrated a significant interest from professional aviation and travel industry communities of the South-eastern Europe region for air transport development. There is an obvious demand for new research and planning for successive creation of new airlines, upgrading airports and opening new routes. It is expected that many new developments will happen within next few years
