Airport Dubrovnik expects over one million passengers in 2005

Dubrovnik Airport Sees 23% Increase in Passenger Traffic
December 14, 2004

DUBROVNIK (Croatia), December 14 (SeeNews) - Dubrovnik airport officials said on Tuesday they expected passenger traffic to rise 23%, to 880,000 travelers, this year as more tourists flock to Croatia's Adriatic resort.

Higher interest in Dubrovnik as a destination, coupled with improved infrastructure and more flights by low-cost and other carriers, led the increase, the airport's deputy chief executive officer Frano Luetic told SeeNews. Airport Dubrovnik expects the trend to continue next year, when passenger numbers should exceed one million.

Passenger numbers through the first eleven months of the year totaled 863,507, up 23% on the year. Of those, 703,671 flew internationally. The number of takeoffs and landings rose by 20% on the year for the January-November period, to 11,969.

Domestic carriers Croatia Airlines and Air Adriatic led the pack. The leading international carrier serving the airport was French Air Mediterranee, followed by British Airways, Austrian Airlines and Belgian Thomas Cook Airlines. The most popular destinations were Paris, London, Dublin, Brussels and Frankfurt.
