Mariusz Wiatrowski, President of Poznań-Ławica Airport, said the following:
Constant growing trend of interest in our airport by carriers shows first of all, it is an airport created for passengers. During the interview for the portal I said among other things that last year was very good for our airport, even in terms of the number of new connections announced, and a decrease of 3.9% is due only from a high comparison database.
In 2018, we recorded an increase in traffic, when compared to 2017, by 33.7 percent, which gave us the second place in Europe among airports serving up to 5 million passengers a year. Whereas on the charter traffic market - by as much as 65.9 percent, probably the highest in Europe.
It has meant that over the past two years, even with negative dynamics in 2019, we achieved average annual growth in this market Checked-in passengers at 28.7 percent and an average annual average over a three-year period the increase is 25.3 percent, still higher than the average for the entire Polish market.
In our multi-year program we have planned that this year we will achieve historically high results, we will serve 2.56 million passengers. We continue to maintain these plans, particularly because we are the second regional airport in Poland, behind Katowice, in terms of charter traffic, and this market still has high growth potential.
We currently offer 43 charter destinations, including 8 new ones. However, with carriers such as WizzAir and Ryanair we are increasing to 36 destinations in scheduled flights, some of them launched during the summer season. Very important that the directions Scandinavian, among others to Oslo Gardermoen, Norwegian Air entered us again, doubling also a connection to Copenhagen, still served by SAS, which is good a signal in assessing its potential.
We also plan investments in 2020 that will make life easier for all passengers and allow even more efficient check-in and security control.
