Written by  Apr 07, 2024

Zagreb Airport is poised for a bustling year ahead, with expectations of surpassing four million passengers fuelled by significant growth initiatives. Over the summer season, Zagreb will boast an unparalleled network connectivity, with a record-breaking tally of 66 destinations—six domestic and sixty international, reports EX-YU Aviation.

Anticipated to drive double-digit growth during the summer months, the airport has fortified its capacity for scheduled flights. From March 31 to October 26, scheduled flight capacity is set at 3,581,722 seats, marking a notable 13.2% increase equivalent to 418,009 additional seats.

Huseying Bahadir Bedir, the airport’s General Manager, expressed optimism, highlighting significant developments. "We commenced the year on a high note with the arrival of Pegasus Airlines as a new partner. This summer, Croatia Airlines is set to introduce three new routes from Zagreb, linking the city to Berlin, Stockholm, and Tirana," he stated. "Ryanair's expansion includes five new destinations, further enriching our network. Additionally, our long-haul partner, T'Way Air, will commence flights from Seoul in May, operating thrice weekly until late October. We also anticipate increased frequencies on flights from Toronto, Dubai, and other key destinations."

Bedir concluded on an ambitious note, "With all factors aligning, we anticipate achieving a historic milestone this year—surpassing four million passengers for the first time in the airport's history."
