The airport’s spokeswoman Vanessa Flamez told journalists that “This is 15% better than the 2017 figure of 365,000 passengers and almost as good as in 2016”
"The good figures can be mainly explained by Tui-Fly’s fuller flights and the one hand and two new destinations Sharm-El-Sheik and Hurghada, on the other. Flights to Djerba and Enfidha in Tunisia have also re-started. We expect that the number of passengers will continue to rise".
Airfreight tonnage was also up last year with 28,000 tonnes or airfreight passing through the airport.
