This year, Dubrovnik Airport welcomed its two-millionth passenger 19 days earlier than last year. 

Namely, Amanda Lynn Lowe from San Diego, California arrived on Friday by a Croatia Airlines flight from Zurich, Switzerland, reports N1.

Dubrovnik Airport director Frano Luetić congratulated the two-millionth passenger, pointing out that the airport keeps breaking records. 

“Reconstruction and improvement over the last six years have brought us growth in traffic. In these seven and a half months, our traffic has increased by 14 percent. In July, we reached a record over half a million passengers, and on August 3, we had a daily record with more of 24,000 passengers,” Luetić emphasized.

The airport hopes to reach three million passengers by the end of the year. 

“The number itself is not so important to us, but we place importance on the quality of service. We hope for good financial results as well,” Luetić said.

Croatia Airlines commercial director Slaven Zabo is pleased that the two-millionth passenger arrived in Dubrovnik on the flight of the national airline, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.

Croatia Airlines, he added, is connecting Dubrovnik directly with eight international and three domestic destinations this year.

This year’s two-millionth passenger at Dubrovnik Airport, a professional bodybuilder, has come to Croatia for an active vacation and will participate in a wellness seminar on the island of Lopud.

This is the third year in a row that Dubrovnik Airport has registered their two millionth passenger – the first time was on September 29, 2017, and last year on September 11.
