What an incredible start to 2019 for Croatia’s airports. Every major airport in Croatia has recorded a growth in passenger numbers in the first half of this year, from a whopping 38 percent in Zadar to 4 percent in Zagreb. If the season and the year continues in the same vein, and all indicators are showing it will, then 2019 will certainly be a record breaking year in more than one category.
From the beginning of the year until the end of June the six main Croatian airports handled 4.3 million passengers with every single airport showing a growth in figures compared to the same period from last year. And according to a report in the website EX-YU Aviation during the summer months there are 81 new scheduled and charter routes introduced from 24 different countries. This further addition of new flights, new airlines and new destinations will continue to increase the footfall through Croatian airports.
Dubrovnik Airport saw an increase in passenger number in the six half of 2019 by a healthy 17.4 percent, which is certainly well ahead of expectations and handled 1.059 million passengers.
