Four digit growth for Osijek

An April to remember at Osijek Airport
It’s not every day that an airport records a 4 digit passenger percentage increase but that is exactly what happened to Osijek in April. Airports across Croatia recorded substantial passenger growth when compared to April 2010. Granted, April of last year saw most airports across Europe close due to the volcano ash from Iceland but the airports also recorded respectable increases compared to April of 2009.

Croatia’s main airport, Zagreb, handled a total of 190.751 passengers, an impressive 35.2% increase. For the first four months of the year, Pleso is up by 17.6%. A similar increase in passenger numbers was recorded in Split where figures jumped by over 37%. Despite having only 10 flights more, Dubrovnik’s airport handled 77.046 passengers and recorded an increase of 22.2%. An impressive passenger boost was also seen at Pula Airport, which plans to end the year off with an increase of at least 10% compared to 2010. Rijeka is still waiting for flights to pick up this summer. It recorded an increase of “only” 17.7%. Finally, Osijek with 2.122 passengers sees its numbers grow by 3.286%.
