December 4 (SeeNews) - The number of passengers handled by Slovenia's international airports stood at 1.5 million in 2016, the country's statistics office said.
The statistics office did not give year-on-year comparative figures but said that passenger traffic increased 43% in comparison to 2006 when over a million people passed through Slovenia's airports.
In 2016, a large majority of air passengers arrived in and departed from Slovenia via the Ljubljana airport, the statistics office said in a statement late last week.
Most passengers travelled on the flights to and from Germany - 16.6% of all passengers, followed by the United Kingdom with 13.4%, Turkey with 7.9%, Switzerland with 7.0%, Belgium with 6.9%, France with 5.3%, Serbia with 4.7%, Austria with 4.5%, Greece and Albania with 3.7% each. Over 70% of all passengers travelled to and from these countries.
A year-on-year comparison shows that passenger traffic increased the most on flights to and from the United Kingdom - by more than 30,000 people, Poland - by more than 20,000 and the Netherlands - by more than 10,000.
On the other hand, compared to 2016, passenger numbers decreased the most on routes between Slovenia and Serbia, Turkey, Switzerland and Egypt.
Slovenia has three international airports - Ljubljana Joze Pucnik Airport, Airport of Edvard Rusjan Maribor and Portoroz Airport.
