Polish Airports Had a Record-Breaking May

In May 2016 Airport Gdansk serviced 349,409 passengers which means 8.1% rise compared to analogous period of time in year 2015. From the beginning of year 2016, Airport Gdansk serviced 1,438,818 passengers already. That means average rise of 8.8% percent compared to analogous period of time in year 2015.

1 million 80 thousand passengers were handled at Warsaw Chopin Airport in May. This is another record month in the history of the airport. The number of passengers in May 2016 was higher by 7 percent than in May 2015, which means that it was also the best May in the history of the airport. This is the 13th consecutive month with the historical record, and 20 months of continuous growth in the number of passengers at Chopin Airport. Since the beginning of the year Chopin Airport has handled 4.33 million passengers (an increase of 7.9 percent), of which 3.85 million in international traffic (up 7.8 percent) and 480 thousand in domestic traffic (up 8.9 percent).
In May, 457,542 passengers were handled at Kraków Airport. It is an increase of 17%, i.e. 65 thousand passengers, compared to May 2015. It was the best May in our history. An increase in the number of aircraft operations was also observed last month. They amounted to 3,819, which was an increase of 17% compared to May 2015. On 8 May, we handled a record number of passengers. 18,051 people chose Kraków Airport services on that very day.
May was a very eventful month. Some of the most important events included obtaining the European Public Use Aerodrome Licence and the approval for our investment plan that most importantly provides for a new runway and a dialogue with the local community. June has been just as hectic. It marks the beginning of holiday season and preparations for the World Youth Day. Kraków Airport is fully capable of handling both pilgrims and the rest of passengers.
It is worth noting that two airlines will launch new connections from Kraków Airport in June: Iberia Express (to Madrid) and Aegean (to Athens). As far as scheduled flights are concerned, easyJet’s connection to Edinburgh and Ryanair’s connections to Madrid (MAD) and Leeds/Bradford (LBA) were the busiest in May. Kraków Airport has handled 1,849,773 passengers since the beginning of the year. It is an increase of 280 thousand passengers, i.e. a growth rate of 18%.
