A year to remember ... Zadar Airport
Overall Croatian airports staged a respectable recovery in 2010. Most of the country’s hubs managed to see an increase in the number of handled passengers, despite a lacklustre start to the year. Airports on the Croatian coast, such as Dubrovnik and Split, had an exceptionally good year while the likes of Rijeka struggled both economically and passenger wise. Despite new low cost flights from Zagreb, Croatia Airlines’ slash in frequencies saw Zagreb post only a small increase.
In 2010, a total of 5.180.866 passengers were handled at airports across Croatia, an increase of 5.7% compared to 2009. According to analysts, 2011 is expected to be another year of growth.
