Croatian Airports Experience 15.2% Surge in Passenger Numbers in 2023, Zagreb and Split Lead, Rijeka Sees Decline

Written by  Feb 11, 2024

Croatian airports surpassed 2022 by 15.2 percent in 2023 with over 11.2 million passengers, with Zagreb and Split airports having the most passengers, Osijek airport experiencing the largest increase, and the only decline in passenger numbers being at Rijeka airport, according to data from the Croatian Bureau of Statistics.

The increase in the number of passengers at airports in 2023 was also contributed to by an 11.2 percent increase in December 2023 alone compared to the same month the previous year, totalling 339 thousand more passengers.

The annual and December increase in the number of passengers at airports was accompanied by a smaller percentage increase in aircraft operations (landings and take-offs) - on an annual basis by five percent with just over 124.1 thousand of those operations, and in December by 3.5 percent, with about 4,900 operations.

According to data from the Croatian Bureau of Statistics, there was a six percent decrease in cargo passing through airports in 2023 compared to 2022, or 6,200 tons, but in December, there was a slight increase.
