Milan Bergamo Airport: passenger records in 2016
Milan Bergamo Airport witnessed another year of robust growth throughout 2016, welcoming close to one million more passengers than the year before.
Experiencing 7.2 per cent passenger traffic growth, Milan Bergamo was Italy’s third busiest airport last year, handling over 11.1 million passengers – a new record for the gateway.
Crediting the surge to the addition of 19 new routes throughout 2016, increased load factors on scheduled flights, as well as providing one of the best punctuality records throughout similar-sized airports worldwide, the Italian airport was connected to 114 destinations across 33 countries last year.
While Milan Bergamo remains Ryanair’s largest Italian base, the northern Italian airport is set to kick-start 2017 by increasing the diversity of carriers at the airport away from its traditional low-cost carrier core.
