A full ten days ahead of last year Dubrovnik Airport welcomed its millionth passenger today on a flight from Istanbul. A Turkish Airlines flight, TK439, arriving this morning Heather Noelle Rhine, an American living in South Korea became the millionth passenger to travel through the Dubrovnik Airport this year.
To her obvious surprise the millionth passenger was greeted by representatives of the airport, including the director, Roko Tolic, and a whole host of media. She was presented with gifts from the airport and from the Dubrovnik Tourist Board. She commented that she had chosen to visit Dubrovnik after hearing many positive reports from her friends; also she is a fan of the HBO series Game of Thrones which uses the city as a filming location. On her wish list in Dubrovnik were visits to the local islands, a trip to Montenegro and, of course, a tour of the filming locations from the Game of Thrones. She had flown alone but planned to meet some friends from Norway who were already on holiday in Dubrovnik.
Dubrovnik Airport is having an extremely successful year, with an 18 percent increase in the number of passengers recorded already. And the simple fact that the millionth passenger arrived a full ten days before 2015 indicates that this year will be a record breaking one.
