  3. The result is good, however still bellow original projection by the management. Airport will most likelly handle around 2.57 million passengers this year,

    Pax in 000:
    1-VIII = 1859
    September: 385
    October: 250
    November: 35
    December: 35
    Total: 2570

    Next year, 2.8 million and 2020 around 3.1 million, at current rate of growth.
    Problem is November - March period when airport handles less traffic than in April.

    2. Very hard for Brac it is more of a guess work, as they don't publish all the data.
      At best I think we can expect 30k this year, around 37-38k next year and in 2020, hopefully 50k. Airport never had more than 33k.

      Rijeka, hm, also quite hard to guess as they have so much seasonality. 175k this year, next year, 200k could be achieved and 2020, if all goes well 250k. Problem with Rijeka, Osijek and Brac is high seasonality, so getting the actual data is at best a guesswork.

      All Croatian airports projections in 000:

      2018:

      Zagreb: 3380
      Split: 3140
      Dubrovnik: 2570
      Pula: 710
      Zadar: 625
      Rijeka: 175
      Osijek: 58
      Brac: 31

      2019:

      Zagreb: 3700
      Split: 3470
      Dubrovnik: 2780
      Pula: 750
      Zadar: 650
      Rijeka: 200
      Osijek: 85
      Brac: 38

      2020:

      Zagreb: 4000
      Split: 3700
      Dubrovnik: 3050
      Pula: 820
      Zadar: 700
      Rijeka: 240
      Osijek: 120
      Brac: 52

      Pula could steamroll next year as well, and record 20%+ growth, however I am being cautions with my predictions, Brexit (if it happens, very good chance it won't) could hit hard Pula airport, as it is heavily used by the Brits for their holidays.

      Zadar airport is too exposed to Ryanair, they need to attract more carriers. Split, Dubrovnik will slow down in their growth post 2020. Pula could dominate post 2020s as Istria becomes even more popular for visitors.

  4. Good to see Croatia Airlines is taking full advantage of Dubrovnik's success.
