On 15 May, a report from the Global Initiative Against Transnational Organised Crime is the result of an organised crime-based security threat assessment of airports in the Western Balkans – though it also notes that illicit activities are also being conducted using private jets that land at minor airports and airstrips.  The focus is limited to 2 major airports, which are presented as case studies: Belgrade and Skopje’s international airports.  These seem to be the hubs for illicit activities related to human trafficking, smuggling of migrants and goods, as well as main entry points for shipments of drugs and precursors.
