Brits Help Osijek Airport to Record Year

ArtworkOsijek Airport, located in eastern Croatia, is expected to break a 29-year passenger record this year…

The 1985 record is likely to be smashed this year thanks largely to the introduction of two routes this year; Ryanair’s Osijek – London route, which was introduced in May, and Trade Air’s new domestic Osijek – Zagreb connection. By the end of the year over 30,000 passengers would have come through Osijek Airport, up from just 3,404 last year. The airport says that the success of the introduction of the low-cost service will mean more services will be introduced in 2015 and 2016, particularly services to and from Germany, the nation which provides Croatia with its most amount of tourists.

Ryanair’s Osijek – London (Stansted) service operated twice weekly over the summer, with more than 18,000 passengers taking the flight this year. Just two years Osijek Airport was in danger of collapse due to large financial debt, however the future now looks a lot brighter for Croatia’s fourth largest city.
