Dubrovnik Airport on target for best year ever

Written by  Jul 25, 2016

Dubrovnik Airport is certainly having an impressive year; one could even say a surprisingly impressive year. Records are being broken, passenger numbers are soaring and new investment has been secured.

On the 14th of July the Dubrovnik Airport had its busiest ever day when it handled nearly 18,000 passengers. This is the most passengers that the airport has seen in a single day in its 55-year history. In fact passenger numbers so far this year have been much higher than expectations. The deputy director of Dubrovnik Airport, Frano Luetic, commented that he is extremely surprised with the growth of passenger numbers so far this season, “We have seen an unbelievable 16 percent increase in passenger numbers through the airport since the beginning of the year and a massive 18 percent increase in June.”

In the first six months of 2016 Dubrovnik Airport greeted 676,000 passengers, which is a huge 15 percent increase over the same period from last year. The airport had predicted a growth of between 3 and 4 percent for the year, “the double digit growth we have seen during the first half of the year has truly surprised,” added Luetic.
