Fraport have just released their latest passenger statistics, the first table shows passenger arrivals in October which indicates negligible difference in arrivals this year opposed to last year. Furthermore October would probably have also seen higher arrivals if the last few Thomas Cook passengers for the season had arrived as scheduled.Fraport_Greece_10_Traffic_2019vs2018
The table below shows passenger figures for 2019 year to date therefore covers this years tourist season and indicates nearly 10,000 more arrivals compared to 2018.Fraport_Greece_YTD_10_Traffic_2019vs2018
All in all despite some minor issues at the airport due to the ongoing work it appears to have been a very successful year for both the airport and tourism on the island.
With the whole airport work scheduled for completion before the start of the next tourist season in 2020, Kefalonia will at last have an airport that can handle the expected volume of passenger numbers and hopefully provide a great customer experience at the beginning and end of peoples trips to the island enhancing their overall holiday experiences even more.
