Air, sea ports report continued increase in arrivals in November

The number of arrivals of planes and vessels and passengers in Croatian sea and air ports in November 2015 was higher than in the same month of 2014, show figures from the national statistical office.

Even though November is the month when most seasonal air and sea lines stop operating, increases reported by sea and air ports in November 2015 testify to a certain degree of activity ahead of the start of the winter season.

The country's eight airports reported close to 4,500 flights in November 2015, an increase of 4%, and 238,000 passengers, 4.5% more than in November 2014.

Zagreb Airport reported the highest number of passengers, 183,500, a 5% increase.

Relatively smaller airports in November last year reported the highest increases in passenger arrivals, with Zadar Airport registering 4,000 arrivals, a 32% increase, Pula Airport slightly more than 1,600 passengers, an increase of 83%, and Osijek Airport close to 500 passengers, an increase of 61.2%.

In the first 11 months of 2015 the airports registered 98,100 take-off and landing operations, 6.4% more than in the same period of 2014, and 7 million passengers, an increase of 7.2%.

Air cargo transport in November was 6.5% higher than in November 2014, at 687 tonnes, and in the first 11 months of 2015 it was 11% higher from the same period of the previous year, at more than 7,000 tonnes.

Sea ports reported 18,000 vessels, 13.4% more than in November 2014, while the number of passengers aboard those vessels was just under one million, a 15% rise.

In the first 11 months of 2015, sea ports reported 297,000 visiting vessels, 22% more than in the same period of 2014. The number of passengers aboard those vessels was 15.4% higher, at 27.5 million.

Sea port cargo transport increased in November by as much as 32.6% to 1.6 million tonnes, and in the first 11 months of 2015 it was 2.5% higher from the same period of 2014, at 17.6 million tonnes.
