NORTH SARDINIA AIRPORTS: TRAFFIC RECORD IN JULY 2022


2nd August 2022 - 882,000 passengers transited through Alghero and Olbia airports in July 2022, up 10% (+80.000 passengers) compared to the same period in 2019.
The increase was determined by the excellent performance of the domestic segment, which recorded +35% compared to July 2019, thanks to the expansion of the offer (in terms of routes and seats offered) by the main carriers operating at both airports and a flight load factor in line with the pre-pandemic period.

Encouraging signs were also seen on the international front, where 85% of 2019 passenger traffic was recovered and connections to/from all long-standing markets except Russia were reactivated.

The data recorded from 1st January to 31st July at both airports shows an increase of 93.000 passengers (+4.0%) when compared to the first 7 months of 2019, thanks to the extensive network of 77 connections guaranteed by more than 40 airlines from/to 21 European markets.

Specifically, a total of 218.000 passengers transited through Alghero airport (+6.3% compared to July 2019), while 821.000 passengers have been handled since January, with a growth of +7.6% that places Riviera del Corallo among the top national performers in terms of recovery.

Olbia Airport welcomed 664.000 passengers in July (+11.4% compared to 2019), setting an all-time record for that month. In the first seven months of the year, on the other hand, a total of 1.643.000 passengers passed through (+2.2% compared to 2019).

Olbia Airport's General Aviation data was excellent, which in July alone handled over 3.900 flights, an increase of +18.3% compared to 2019. It should be noted that last year the Costa Smeralda's private flight segment had already largely recovered its pre-pandemic traffic.
