579,463 passengers were served at Kraków Airport this April, a 19% increase compared to April 2017.
Kraków Airport has been visited by 1,985,791 passengers since the beginning of this year, which constitutes a 20% increase compared to the same period last year. This is the result of 4,485 flight operations (+15% from last April).
In April, Kraków Airport officially introduced two new #flyKRK routes: a flydubai connection to Dubai on 8th April, and PLL LOT's connection to Budapest later that month. Thanks to PLL LOT's flight network, flights to the Hungarian capital will enable passengers travelling from Kraków to continue their journey to other destinations, including JFK Airport in New York.
Another novelty is a route to Eindhoven, announced in April. Operated by Transavia, this new connection will be available to passengers in the 2018/2019 winter season four times a week: on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.
Kraków Airport is among 9 companies from Małopolska region whose CSR practices have been included in the 16th edition of the report compiled by the Responsible Business Forum, entitled “Responsible Business in Poland. Good practices”. This is the fifth distinction awarded to Kraków Airport in its history.
In April, Kraków Airport became a signatory to Just Culture Declaration, aimed at building a just treatment culture. The signatories to the Declaration undertake to implement a just treatment culture and promote actions aimed at improving aviation safety.
