Croatia Banks €65 Million a Year For Use of its Airspace

CroatiaCroatia earnt over 65 million euros from flights passing through its airspace, and from take offs last year alone…

Croatia’s location, which puts it at the crossroads of important European corridors, means that more than 2,000 flights a day are flying above the nation’s sky in summer, keeping Croatian air traffic controllers busy. Half a million flights passed through Croatia’s airspace last year, and it seems things are getting busier, this July there was a 5% increase in overflights from the same period last year.
Airspace charges depend on the weight of the aircraft and the length of the flight, so for example for flying from Zagreb to Dubrovnik the state earns 600 euros.

“This cake is growing every year, the global political situation may change these corridors,” Deputy Transport Minister Dan Simonić told RTL.
