Record breaking year for Dubrovnik Airport Record breaking year for Dubrovnik Airport

2016 a year to remember for Croatia’s airports – Dubrovnik breaks records

Written by  Mark Thomas Jan 17, 2017

The three largest airports in Croatia, Zagreb, Split and Dubrovnik, all recorded a record in 2016. The country’s main airports all had their best ever years, in terms of passengers numbers, ever. In total these three airports received over 7 million passengers, a huge increase of 13 percent on 2015.

Dubrovnik Airport saw an impressive growth in passenger numbers in 2016 and with the new terminal, Terminal C, ready to open this early summer this year should be even better. In 2016 Dubrovnik Airport handled 1.9 million passengers, falling short of the 2 million barrier by only around 6,000 passengers. This year should see Dubrovnik Airport easily break the 2 million passenger mark. In 2016 Dubrovnik Airport had an increase of almost 18 percent in passenger numbers.

Speaking to the specialised website, EX-YU Aviation News, the deputy director of Dubrovnik Airport, Frano Luetic, said “Figures were aided by a stronger winter season thanks to the airport's efforts to attract airlines during the off-season.” He added that more work must be done in the off-season, although the addition of Turkish Airlines helped the overall winter figures.
