Pula Airport targets 700.000 passengers


Pula Airport anticipates welcoming a record 700.000 passengers this year. General Manager Svemir Radmilo noted that the airport should see 15% passenger growth in 2018 with over 10.000 flights to be operated. "Pula Airport was linked to 53 destinations in 2017. In 2018 we expect this figure to reach close to sixty. Volotea will launch its new route from Nantes to Pula in May, easyJet will add new services from Milan, Basel, Liverpool and London Southend, while Swiss International Air Lines will introduce flights from Zurich", Mr Radmilo said. This summer will also see Pula served by the wide-body Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which will be utilised by TUI from London, each Tuesday, starting May 1. Pula Airport handled 595.812 travellers in 2017, an increase of 36.5% on the year before. It managed to surpass Zadar to position itself as Croatia's fourth busiest airport. Pula welcomed the most passengers in a single year back in 1990 when it saw 672.241 travellers pass through its doors.
