Zadar Airport Hits One Million Passenger Milestone

Written by  Sep 13, 2023

In a significant milestone, Zadar Airport welcomed its one-millionth passenger of the year, a rare occurrence in its history, last Friday. This achievement comes just a year after the airport handled over a million passengers for the first time, showcasing its remarkable growth.

The millionth traveler, disembarking from a Ryanair flight originating in Memmingen, Germany, was greeted almost a month ahead of the previous year's schedule. This accomplishment is a testament to the airport's increasing popularity and efficiency.

General Manager Josip Klišmanić expressed his delight, stating, "We are thrilled to celebrate this remarkable achievement. This year, we anticipate accommodating approximately 1.25 million passengers, reflecting a 12% increase compared to the previous year. Notably, August emerged as our busiest month ever, with Zadar Airport handling 295,000 passengers."

Zadar Airport's impressive growth can be primarily attributed to its partnership with Ryanair, which maintains a seasonal base in the city. This collaboration has played a pivotal role in driving the airport's success, and it continues to contribute significantly to its increasing passenger numbers.
