The capital’s airport recorded its busiest ever September with 345,770 passengers travelling through the airport. Zagreb saw a 4.5 percent increase in passenger numbers this September compared to the same month from last year. During September there were 4,175 aircraft operations at Croatia’s busiest airport.
Zagreb Airport is certainly expanding, both physically and in terms of passenger numbers, and every month of 2018 has seen a rise in passenger numbers, with May seeing a huge 11.8 percent increase as just over 300,000 travellers used the airport. By the end of the year it is expected that around 3.4 million passengers will have used Zagreb Airport, an increase of almost 10 percent over last year.
According to the specialised website EX-YU Aviation the airport “welcomed 2.569.296 travellers through its doors in the first three quarters, up 8.6% on the same period last year. So far in 2018, it added an extra 203.310 passengers compared to 2017.”
And with more flights expected for 2019 and more long haul destinations to be added to the schedule the sky seems to be the limit for the capital’s airport.
