CroatiaThe month of August has seen the most number of passengers in a calendar month passing through Zagreb international airport in its entire history…

There were 269,500 passengers through the airport in August, 10% more than what was recorded in August 2013, and creating a record in the process. According to a statement from the airport today, the positive trend has continued into September, with the first 10 days seeing 7% more travellers more than the same period last year. The boom in Zagreb as a tourist destination with over double-digit growth over the last couple of years has coincided with good results for the international airport.

A number of carriers have increased their Zagreb services. From May 2 Vueling again operated direct flights to Barcelona from Zagreb three times a week, whilst from 26 June direct fights to Rome twice a week were introduced. Turkish Airlines increased their services to Istanbul to two flights a day, everyday of the week. KLM returned after 22 years to Zagreb and introduced direct flights to Amsterdam whilst Air Europa and Air Nostrum began chartered flights to Spain.

Qatar Airways have announced from 1 October that they will fly three times a week direct to Doha, without stopping in Budapest. Korean Air will also add four extra services and charter flights from Tel Aviv also began this summer.
