Two airports that once belonged to the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia have made the list of Europe’s 80 busiest in August and Europe’s top 100 for 2022 so far, ACI Europe has announced.

Belgrade’s Nikola Tesla Airport took 68th place with a total of 717,050 passengers in August, ranking ahead of Malta, Tirana and Sofia but behind Lyon, Krakow and Thessaloniki. The Split Airport placed 77th with 625,622 passengers, ahead of Toulouse, Santorini and Torino, but behind Bordeaux, Eindhoven and Nantes.

Over the first eight months of this year, Belgrade’s airport remained the busiest ex-Yu airport with a total of 3,572,011 passengers. It ranked 77th in Europe, ahead of Riga, Tirana and Belfast and right behind Thessaloniki, Larnaca and Malta.

The Split Airport made Europe’s top 100 with a total of 2,147,203 passengers. In 2022 so far, Europe’s busiest airport has been Istanbul, with over 41 million passengers. The runner-ups are London Heathrow, Paris Charles de Gaulle, Amsterdam and Madrid.

None of the leading airports, however, have managed to reach pre-COVID numbers. Istanbul has come the closest, having recorded a drop of only 9.7 percent compared to the same period three years ago.
