July – the month of the World Youth Day

Publish date



July is a recording-breaking month in terms of passengers and aerial operations. The holiday season reaches its peak while pilgrims return home following the World Youth Day.

In July, Kraków Airport handled 488,406 passengers. It was the best month in the airport's history. Kraków Airport recorded a 13% increase in passenger traffic (i.e. 58 thousand passengers) compared to the same month in 2015. In the first month of summer we also registered a record number of people handled in one day. On 24 July, 19,746 passengers chose Kraków Airport.
Pope Francis' visit to Kraków was unquestionably the most important event of July. All in all, Pope John Paul II, Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis have used our services thirteen times. 
Last month, Air France launched its holiday flights to Paris. The second stage of terminal expansion and modernisation at Kraków Airport was completed. The airport entered into a cooperation agreement for the duration of the World Youth Day, becoming a partner of the event. Pope Francis began and ended his pilgrimage to Poland at the military part of the airport.
In July, we recorded 3,998 aerial operations, which was an increase of 13% compared to July 2015. Kraków Airport has already handled 2,798,487 passengers (an increase of nearly 400,000 passengers) since the beginning of the year. This constitutes a growth of 16% compared to 2015.
According to data for 31 July, Kraków Airport will handle more than two hundred additional aerial operations in connection with the World Youth Day. These will be both scheduled and charter flights. Furthermore, some airlines plan to direct larger aircraft to Kraków during that time. Additional flights, larger aircraft or charter flights are offered by Vueling, Alitalia, Iberia, Lufthansa, PLL LOT, KLM, Brussels Airlines and Austrian Airlines to name a few.
Between 19 July and 6 August Kraków Airport expects forty thousand additional passengers (pilgrims). Our current capacity amounts to twenty nine thousand passengers per day. The very first registered pilgrim landed in Kraków on 16 July.
On 31 July, pilgrims started returning home. Kraków Airport expects a record number of passengers at the beginning of August. Kraków Airport plans to handle over twenty thousand passengers flying in and out on the first day of August. Pilgrims constitute more than a quarter of that number. On Monday (August 1), thirty additional planes will use the airport. The last aerial operation in connection with the World Youth Day is scheduled for 9 August.
The biggest number of additional flights with pilgrims landed in Kraków on Monday (July 25) and Tuesday (July 26), 9 and 7 flights accordingly. The biggest number of departures is planned for 1 and 2 August. Considering that we are in the peak of summer season and including additional traffic associated with the World Youth Day, we estimate that in the coming days more than twenty thousand passengers flying in and out of Kraków will use the services of our airport every day.
