In June, Chopin Airport faced the start of its peak period. Polish holidaymakers go on vacation and city-breaks using the free time, beautiful weather and the numerous promotions offered by airlines during the summer.
In the list of destinations of scheduled flights, the top spot was taken by London (airports: Gatwick, Heathrow, Luton) with an increase of nearly one-fifth year-on-year. No significant changes in passenger numbers flying to / from Western European metropolises such as Paris (airports Charles de Gaulle and Beauvais), Frankfurt, Amsterdam, and Munich. The fourth place went to Brussels with a 60 percent increase compared to the same period of the previous year.
The Egyptian holiday resorts experienced a popularity decline in the chartered flights section. For example, Hurghada ended in 7th position on the list of most popular destinations. Greek destinations however experienced an increase in popularity. Nearly 80 percent more passengers, compared to the same period last year, flew to the island of Corfu from Chopin Airport in June.
Particularly noteworthy is the 20 percent increase of passengers flying to the Turkish city of Antalya. The Bulgarian city of Burgas also recorded a significant growth in passengers from Chopin Airport with an increase of 46.4 percent.
