A brilliant 2015: almost 7 million passengers (+4.7%)
Bologna Airport breaks a new traffic record in 2015: almost seven million passengers (6,889,742), totaling a growth of 4.7% versus 2014.
International flight passengers increased by 7.2% to 5,171,585, accounting for 75% of total passengers, while domestic flight passengers marked a slight decrease (1,710,419, -2.1%), due to the lower offer of some domestic carriers.
After the central part of the year with a very good trend and over 600 thousand passengers per month between May and October, the month of November reported brilliant results, December saw a real passenger boom (+13.1%, 524,140 passengers), also favored by the instrumental landing system which makes landings and take-offs possible also under low visibility conditions.
The traffic growth in 2015 is mainly due to the starting of several new connections (Budapest, Dubai, Katowice, Las Palmas, Lviv, Prague and Tel Aviv) and the increased frequencies on some important existing routes (in particular: Berlin, Bucharest, Cagliari, Chisinau, Copenhagen, Istanbul and Moscow).
Among the favorite destinations, Paris is on the top of the ranking with over half a million passengers (516,025 including the airports of Charles De Gaulle, Beauvais and Orly), closely followed by London with 515,690 passengers (Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted airports). Frankfurt ranks third, with 281,947 passengers. The top ten also includes: Istanbul, Barcelona, Palermo, Catania, Madrid, Rome and Amsterdam.
Total movements were 64,571 in 2015, practically unchanged as compared with 2014 (-0.4%), while a slight decrease was registered for air-transported freight (-4.1%) equaling 30,836 tons.
