June 2014 Traffic


Rhodes Airport overview - ©R.A.T


Here are the stats for June, traffic did fairly well. Of major markets, Germany, Sweden, Poland, France and Finland gave double digit increases while Italy, Denmark and -pretty expected- Ukraine had decreases. Finally, from new markets, Estonia and Ireland do very well, Dublin flight in fact was recently upgraded to bigger aircraft, Turkey though -provided numbers are correct- seems to be an early fail, hope it goes better during high season.
