ZAGREB (Croatia), November 18 (SeeNews) - Passenger traffic at Zagreb Airport rose 2.4% year-on-year in January-October to more than 2.957 million, Aeroports de Paris (ADP), which is a shareholder in the company operating Croatia's biggest international airport, said.

In October alone, Zagreb's Franjo Tudjman Airport handled some 330,600 passengers, up 3.9% on the year, ADP said in an emailed statement on Friday.

In the past 12 months, Zagreb Airport saw a 2.7% rise in passenger numbers to just over 3.4 million, ADP added.

ADP and Turkey's TAV Airports (46%-owned by ADP Group) hold stakes of 21% and 15%, respectively, in airport operator Zagreb Airport International Company (ZAIC).

In 2012, the Croatian government and ZAIC signed a 30-year concession contract for the management of the airport and the construction of a new terminal.

The remaining shareholders in ZAIC are France's Bouygues Batiment International with 20.8%, EU-backed Marguerite Fund with 20.8%, IFC with 17.6%, and Croatia's Viadukt with 5.1%.
