Croatia Airlines registers passenger growth


Croatia Airlines handled some 910.000 passengers during the first half of the year, representing an increase of 5% compared to the same period in 2017. During June alone, the airline carried 231.804 travellers on board its aircraft, up 2% on the same month last year. The carrier operated six charter flights to Russia during June, ferrying fans to the FIFA World Cup, while numerous charters were also performed in July as Croatia entered the final of the championships. The average cabin load factor during the six-month period stood at 71%, up 1.3 points.

    June growth was only 2%? Ouch. Didn't they add more flights this year?!

      Almost 200 flights were cancelled because of a lack of staff.

      flights in June are generally very full already, leaving almost no space for growth, without adding more flights, which they didn`t. That is also the reason why growth in the first 3 months was over 10 % leaving it at 5% altogether after June. In absolute numbers the months to come are the drivers and there is almost no room for more pax on existing flights.

      And also new routes replaced the ones that were cancelled or reduced like Pristina, London...

    If airlines continues to grow pax at 5% for the remaining part of this year, we could see 2.25 million pax carried by the carrier. most in history. The fact the load factor is also 71% for first 6 months is also nice indication the carrier is doing well in terms of load factor and capacity.

    If carrier caries more than 7% this year, or additional 150 000 pax, carrier might have decent profit this year, ideally more than 7-10 million kuna.

    In 2020, carrier should be capable handling 2.55 million pax, or 85% load factor, which should allow for greater margin of profit and success for the carrier. By 2020, Carrier will most likely handle around 1.75 million pax out of Zagreb, or around 40% of projected traffic at Zagreb in 2020.

    In 2021 and 2022 4 additional A320 NEO will join the fleet, it would also be smart to add 6 CS100 or A220 100 to the fleet, to replace A320 and A319s in the fleet.

    A220 100 or 300 are much more fuel efficient than A319 or even A320 NEO, idea aircraft for Croatian airlines.
