More than 11 million passengers passed through nine Croatian airports in the first 11 months of last year, an increase of 8.3 percent over 2018, according to results released by Croatian Bureau of Statistics on Monday.

Last November, Croatian airports saw a 10 percent increase in passengers compared to the same month in 2018.

The largest increase in passengers after the tourist season was recorded at the Zagreb airport, through which 244,300 passengers passed in November last year, an increase of 5.4 percent, followed by the airports in Dubrovnik and Split.

Most passengers were from Croatia, Germany, the United Kingdom, Austria, Turkey and the Netherlands in November.

Despite the fact that more and more passengers are arriving at Croatian airports, the operations of the national airliner Croatia Airlines are fraught with losses and difficulties.

Last September, the Croatian government approved 250 million kuna (37 million U.S. dollars) to stabilize Croatia Airlines’ business ahead of a new recapitalization and possible privatization.
