Istanbul the busiest airport in Europe in 2022 – Zagreb tops Croatian list

Written by  Feb 12, 2023

According to Airports Council International latest information Dubrovnik Airport was the 129th busiest in Europe in 2022.

Istanbul remained the busiest European airport in 2022, welcoming an impressive 64.3 million passengers and in second place was London Heathrow with 61.6 million passengers.

The leading Croatian airport was Zagreb Airport which was placed in 114th position on the new data. The capital's airport was followed by Split Airport which was close behind in 119th position, and then Dubrovnik in 129th position.

Passenger traffic across the European airport network nearly doubled (+98%) in 2022 compared to the previous year, reaching 1.94 billion passengers.

Olivier Jankovec, Director General of ACI EUROPE said: “The surge in passenger traffic last year has been phenomenal. Kicking off in early Spring when most travel restrictions were finally lifted, it boomed over the summer and remained resilient afterwards. All of this despite geopolitical shocks, deteriorating macro-economics, fast-rising air fares and COVID still being with us. If anything, 2022 has been the year in which we finally learned how to live and travel with COVID-19.”
