Croatian airports to have a record-breaking year

Written by  Aug 21, 2017

This has been a great year so far for Croatian airports with figures up over 17 percent compared to last year. A total of over nine million passengers is expected to pass Croatian airports – EX-YU Aviation News reports.

The president of the Air Transport Association at the Croatian Chamber of Economy Tonci Peovic commented for EX-YU Aviation News why he thinks the growth is happening, saying that the significant rise has been influenced by GDP growth in countries that visitors are coming from, as well as other numerous factors such as safety.

First half of the year was a bomb for Croatian airports, as they made record breaking numbers with 3.444.310 passengers, according to the Croatian Civil Aviation Agency. That is an increase of 17.7 percent compared to the same period last year.

Some of the airports estimated how many passengers will pass their airports by the end of the year, but it’s expected that those numbers will be surpassed – Zagreb Airport expects to have three million passengers, Split 2.7 million, Dubrovnik two million, Pula 600 thousand, Zadar 580 thousand and Brac 30 thousand passengers. We’ll see what the next couple of months will bring.
