Dubrovnik Airport set for record April

NEWS FLASH


Dubrovnik Airport is poised to register its strongest April on record, after handling 66.467 passengers during the first seventeen days of the month, up 43% on the same period last year. During the two-and-a-half weeks, a total of 658 aircraft movements were recorded, which is an increase on last year's 568. During the first quarter of 2017, the airport welcomed 75.976 travellers through its doors, a decrease of 5%. The decline was down to weaker results recorded during March. "This is not an indication of some downward trend. March of 2016 cannot be compared to 2017 because it was extremely busy last year due to the Mercedes event which took place in the city at the time, resulting in an increase in the number of visitors and guests. We were aware that this would happen and therefore March of 2017 should not be compared to last year", Dubrovnik Airport's General Manager, Roko Tolić, said.

    1. Well Dubrovnik and DBV area are much more than Stradun. The airport cater for a much larger area which can still grow a lot!

    2. They will probably be planning on looking at getting some growth during the colder months. It's also a gateway to the south part of Croatia and the more souther islands like Korćula.

      You would think / hope the tourist number do start to stagnate somewhat but I doubt that would happen anytime soon.
