Zadar Airport has recorded its busiest month since opening its doors to the public almost five decades ago. This August, the airport handled 101.919 passengers, an increase of 6.1% compared to the same month last year. Following a slow start to 2016, the airport has welcomed 378.318 travellers over the past eight months, an improvement of 6.1% on 2015. Zadar anticipates handling over 500.000 passengers in 2016, which would make this year its busiest on record. Meanwhile, Eurowings recently announced it would launch flights between Vienna and Zadar in 2017. Initially planned to run once per week, the seasonal flights have been boosted to three weekly after strong sales.
