2010-08-02July - Best month on record

With three records broken, July 2010 will go down in the history books as the one of the most remarkable at Katowice Airport in Pyrzowice. With 314 492 passengers using the airport in July, the record for passenger volume was broken. This number represents an increase of 6% over the corresponding time period last year. The growth of passenger traffic at Katowice Airport is best illustrated by statistics. For example, 7 years ago, the airport was used by 257 000 people annually. Now, this is an average figure for a four-week period. In addition, the airport saw a significant growth in charter numbers - 141 540 passengers, which is 10% more than in the same month in 2009. For the first time in the airport's history, more charter passengers used the airport than the leading airline at Katowice Airport, Wizz Air. In terms of regularly scheduled traffic, this year's record-breaking July saw 172 334 passengers using the airport - an increase of 3% in comparison to last year. It's worth noting that on the 14th July, the record for the most passengers in one day was also broken (14 064). From the beginning of 2010 to the end of July, 1 337 583 passengers came through the airport. Forecasts predict that by the 31st December, approximately 2.4 million passengers will have used Katowice Airport.
