    1. It is a pleasant surprise, I was expecting around 210 000 in Zagreb in March, 224000 is a nice bonus.

      all Croatian airports had good March, Easter brake paid off for some.

      Hopefully April will be over 270 000 @Zagreb.

    3. If this trend continues, Zagreb could see over 400,000 pax in July.... now that would be a pleasant surprise!
