EX-YU airports handle over 20 million passengers


Airports across the former Yugoslavia have handled over twenty million passengers during the first three quarters of 2017, with eight of them welcoming over a million travellers for the first time. Tivat joined the list in late September, while Podgorica Airport will follow suit and handle its millionth passenger in late November or early December. Among the former Yugoslavia's larger airports, Split, Ljubljana and Podgorica continue to be the fastest growing, with passenger numbers up over 20% during the Q1 - Q3 period, while Tuzla, Niš and Brač were the biggest gainers among the smaller airports in the region. The only airports with scheduled commercial flights to have seen their figures decline so far this year are Mostar, Rijeka and Banja Luka, although the latter posted growth in September for the first time this year.

Croatia's three busiest airports all handled over two million passengers so far this year, marking the first time they have managed to do so. Both Split and Dubrovnik have already surpassed their 2016 end-of-year result. Split Airport, which remains Croatia's busiest so far this year following a bumper summer season, could extend its lead over Zagreb in October due to a strong showing during the postseason. However, the Croatian capital is expected to overtake its counterpart in the last two months of the year. Pula and Zadar have also performed well in 2017, with the latter expected to welcome a record 580.000 travellers this year.

The passenger difference between nearby competitors Pristina and Skopje continues to shorten with less than 59.000 travellers setting the two apart, compared to over 75.000 in August. Both airports, managed by rival Turkish operators, have posted exceptional growth so far this year. TAV Macedonia told EX-YU Aviation News that Skopje Airport handled 186.450 travellers in September alone. Skopje Airport's General Manager, Alper Ersoy, said earlier this month, "The increase in passenger traffic continued in 2017, although at a slower pace during the first half of the year. However, following the introduction of four new routes from Skopje Airport, as well as a new season of flights from Ohrid, in the second half of the year, we again recorded double digit passenger growth. We expect to end this year with a solid increase in the total number of passengers". Pristina Airport noted, "We are willing to increase flight numbers and extend our network with additional routes, and we are using our incentive plan to attract airlines in order to catch this growth at a sustainable level".

  1. Nice results. Mark my words, next year top three airports will be:

    1. Belgrade
    2. Split
    3. Zagreb-Dubrovnik in a tight race

    1. It is shaping up to be that way although Dubrovnik will stay behind ZAG.

      Delete
    2. All depends how W17 performs which I think will be good. Mind you Air Serbia still flies to DBV with the A319 so I suppose numbers are there to warrant this. Last year both SPU and DBV were cut much earlier.

      Delete
    3. If we look at today's arrivals we have:

      DBV with 22
      SPU with 28
      ZAG with 49

      However I think the number of seats offered is the same while SPU and ZAG might be the same since ZAG has a lot of regional jets and turboprops while SPU gets mostly high density A319s and A320s.

      Delete
    4. Next year Zagreb will be 2nd, and Split 3rd, it would still be 300.000 passengers to catch. But in 2019 Split will for sure be 2nd if Zagreb will not attract more LCC.

      Delete
    5. SPU is seeing more and more larger aircraft being scheduled to fly there due to space restrictions. No one expected their dominance over ZAG to last this long.

      Delete
    6. It will pass quite a few years, if ever for SPU/DBV to overtake ZAG, simply due to horrible seasonality. No matter how strong sumemer is, winter is dead. Same like DBV. ZAG on the other hand has OCT and beyond much, much livelier as it is not reliant solely on tourists.

      Delete
    7. If Croatia's tourism growth is as big next year as it was this year in percentage terms than Split will be very close to overtaking Zagreb next year. Split's dominance over Zagreb could continue for a few years but I think Zagreb will eventually take back top spot.
      Zagreb needs 15% average growth to stay ahead.

    8. This year Croatian airport will have good season.

      Top 5 airports - My projection for 2017 (2018), [2019] {2020} in 000


      Zagreb: 3070, (3550), [4000], {4500}
      Split: 2850, (3200), [3550], {3850}
      Dubrovnik: 2350, (2700), [3000], {3250}
      Pula: 710, (800), [900], {1000}
      Zadar: 620, (700), [800], {850}

      Zagreb will dominate the airport traffic post 2020, with airport handling 7.5-8 million in 2025, 10.5-12 million in 2030.

      Cargo volume is also growing at fast rate, I expect it'll hit 20 000 tons in 2020, and 50 000 ton by 2030.

      Zagreb needs to play smartly this one, get low cost operators only when you have legacy solid market share.

      No to Wizz and Ryan Air must be the policy !!!

      Revenue must go up, from present €158.6 million to €320 million in 2020. Profits too!!!

    10. @Q400

      Chinese visitor numbers are really good, so far 143000 visited Croatia.

      http://www.mint.hr/default.aspx?id=42938


      Next year 200-250 000 Chinese visitors are expected to visit Croatia.

      10-16 years ago, we'd never think Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Australian, Canadian, US and other non-EU visitors will play such important role, now over 2.5 million non-EU/European visitors visit Croatia, next year that number will be over 3 million and by 2020, could be as high as 5 million.

      You can bet direct links with Japan, China, India, S. Korea, Canada and US in not to distant future, perhaps even by 2020.

      Number of Brazilian visitors is up, some 70 000 are expected to visit Croatia this year.
      Number of Indian visitors too, 60-64000 expected to visit this year, at least 200 000 in 2020 from both nationalities.

      Countries, 15 years ago we never thought tourist would be interesting in coming.

      Croatia is starting to get awake, economy is doing well, exports are growing @double digit rate, budget deficit is minuscule, and unemployment is bellow 9%.

      Investment in innovation, education, and public services comes next. Things are looking up.

    11. When everything is so rosy how do you explain the fact that Croatia ha highest decrease in population in has 2-3 years.

      I love that you are so upbeat about your homeland but get realistic a little bit

      Delete
    12. @SM

      100-150 000 Croats left for EU, which resulted in unemployment going down from 300 000 down to 170-200 000 peak unemployment. But many are returning back now, as economy has picked up.

      Croatia had 6 year recession which ended in 2015, economy is now growing at good pace. Things are looking up. Investments in to new tech and hi tech is really important. Export must recover to 40-50% of Country's GDP, which atm is around 374 billion kuna, or €50.5 billion.

      Delete
    13. I wish you can support the notion that people are returning but stats rarely lie. Croatia lost 30K people last year, actually about 45K left,mostly young and educated. That's the size of a smaller city. And don't get me wrong Serbia, BiH are no better. That's the real problem that'll take years to recover from.

    6. That's good but unless they do something there is little hope for them. The 3 BRA flights from Gothenburg this December/January won't do much. It's unfortunate because I think BNX has a lot of perspective and could be a a Wizz base.

    3. From what I heard they are expecting growth to fall somewhere between 8% and 11%. We will see.

      A few months ago the airport saw increased passenger numbers in the last few days which distorted their projections.

  7. I'm actually disappointed with Sarajevo. For its potential it should be handling much more passengers.

    1. Potential is there. For example look at Vienna flights. LJU and ZAG were operated by turboprops while SJJ got the A319. The potential is massive and I hope they lower taxes to stimulate demand.

    3. flydubai is selling SJJ-TGD for €200 so I don't know how many passengers they will get there.

      3pw is much better, but Niš really need at least 6pw to any hub for connections to rest of the world. That should be their goal, and center of their efforts.

      Delete
    6. I think six weekly or daily flights are their long-terms goals. Before those they needed to make sure a legacy can make INI work which seems to be the case with LX.

      With LX doing really well down there I wouldn't be surprised if EW is the next to launch flights from one of the German destinations or maybe even from VIE.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Their numbers are not connected to braking of Yugoslavia but the fact that Croatia build highways from to Zadar to Zagreb with connections to Rijeka, Sisak, Osijek, Ljubljana, Maribor, Budapest and Belgrade; and from Pula to Rijeka-Zagreb with connections to Zadar and to Slovenia-Italy.

      To have so much highway that during Yugoslavia era for sure must influence air traffic.

    5. Dividing the pax numbers for each country by the population (of the considered country) brings Kosovo at the first position:
      1,468,698/1,816,000 = 0.81

      Losinj isn't airport. Only airports in Croatia are.

      Zagreb, Split, Dubrovnik, Pula, Zadar, Rijeka, Osijek and Brac. Losinj is just landing strip, used for charters and add-hock landings. Yes it has some traffic, but much.

    7. It is categories as international airport by Croatian authority, but who they are and what the know:

  27. What happen with Rijeka, Mostar and Lošinj? I can understand numbers for Lošinj, ECA is not flying anymore, but...Mostar have less charter flights this year? And what about Rijeka? They have a lot of flights during the summer, but there is no demand for it?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yes, there were much fewer charter flights from Italy to Mostar this year, which is why numbers have gone down. This will change next year with Eurowings starting flights.

      Not sure about Rijeka.

      Delete
    2. Numbers at Mostar have been falling for a second year in a row now.

  28. In total more than 2 million extra passengers a ex-Yu airports compared to first three quarters of last year.

    1. Can you give more details please?

    2. OU is already flying to LIS 4 pw this year. It was in 2016 that it flew 3pw. Next year, OU will add several more destinations...

      Delete
    3. Problem with OU is not that they are not launching new route but that they are not making any money on the ones they are currently serving.

  32. Do not be supraise of big incrise of number of passenger of costal airport
    There is still room for much bigger improvement
    Palma de Majorca one island in Med has 26 mil pax per year , more that all ex yu airports together.
    Let’s say Split wich servis middle Dalmatia plus islands Brač Hvar Korcula Solta Vis and more has less then 3 mil pax per year
    This year result is very good and first time in history will go over 23 million the number of population of ex-yu

  33. Congrats everybody!!
    Split and Montenegrin airports are the stars this year imo, and Skopje vs Pristina - the most exciting race.

    1. No, no, ZAG would be 11th than. Just after Niš. Or maybe 12th because Banja Luka will jump so high.

      Or even better:
      1. BEG
      2. BEG
      3. BEG
      4. BEG
      5. BEG

    2. Wtf, he's rather realistic.

    3. @ 11:57 is just mad that ZAG won't be the leading airport, just ignore him

    4. So annoying with "predictions".

  35. Interesting part is that both ZAD and INI will be really close by the end of 2017

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Of course

      ZAG will have 600.000
      and INI 300.000

      that is so close.

      Delete
    2. He is talking about Zadar not Zagreb.

      Delete
    3. Mistake
      ZAD 600.000
      INI 300.000

      That is so close. Almost same number of passengers!

      Delete
    4. So damn close.....

      Delete
    5. The only difference is that INI can actually sustain year-round flights and that's why it's only a matter of time before they overtake ZAD.

      Delete
    6. From what I can see ZAD has only two year-round destination, Rijeka and Zagreb on OU. That's really nothing.

      Delete
    7. Ajd, zivi bili pa vidjeli.
      Za sada INI kasni 100% za ZAD.
      Ili, ako ti se vise svidja, INI je za 50% slabiji od ZAD.

      No, ako ces INI gledati kao 2.aerodrom u drzavi, trebao bi ga komoarirati sa SPU ili ZAG.
      Biraj

    8. Zadar ima 12 tjednih letova zimi na dvije destinacije (Pula, a ne Rijeka)

      No ljeti ima 156 tjednih letova. Nebo i zemlja sa ovih par letova Niša.

      Delete
  36. Impressive growth for INI. It has more passengers then Rijeka, Mostar, Osijek, Brac, Banja Luka and Mali Losinj altogether. Absolutely impressive for until a few years back the dead airport.
