Zadar Airport has registered strong first quarter results by handling 15.071 passengers over the three-month period, representing an increase of 40.5% on 2017. In March, the airport welcomed 11.019 travellers through its doors, up 34.6%. Zadar Airport is gearing up for growth of between 5% and 7% this summer.

    Go Zadar, go! You can do much, much better that this.

    Realistically Zadar should handle 1 million pax annually given its potential to take a large number of pax away from SPU. Its position is excellent, has two runways, everything is in place to stimulate growth. I expect ZAD will be next bright star in Croatia this and next year.

    1. Its just a matter of time before Zadar wil reach 1 million pax

      It is with no doubt that ZAD has potential for at least 1 mill pax but realistically SPU won't shrink because ZAD grows. Currently SPU is a little limited (in summer on some weekdays) and because it lacks terminal space and taxiways but that will all change, it is either in final stages of planning or already being built. SPU serves a much larger portion of the coast towards the South, areas where ZAD cannot and will never be able to compete due to its northern location.
