OsijekOsijek Airport, located in eastern Croatia, can thank low-cost airline Ryanair for helping them achieve a massive 15,581% growth last month…

Only 22 passengers passed through Osijek airport in eastern Croatia in May 2013, a drastic contrast to the 3,450 passengers which passed through this May, writes Vecernji list. Ryanair’s Osijek – London route, which was introduced in May this year, and Trade Air’s new Osijek – Zagreb connection, are the sole reasons the airport is going through a renaissance. In the first 5 months of 2014, 6,813 passengers have passed through the airport, representing growth of 6,208% from the same period last year, when only 108 passengers were recorded.

A total of 1,619,324 passengers have passed through all airports in Croatia in the first 5 months of this year, up 2.62% from the same period last year. Along with Osijek Airport, growth was also recorded at Zagreb, Split, Pula, and Brač airports. Rijeka airport has seen a 51% drop in passenger numbers, whilst Zadar and Dubrovnik airports were down by less than half a percentage point.
