Traffic result 2023

Graz Airport starts the New Year with a notable 31% increase in passengers and a 17% growth in freight in 2023. The planned flight programme in 2024 indicates a further positive development.

With 733,146 passengers, in 2023 Graz Airport took care of 31% more passengers than in 2022. In cargo, the Airport even achieved the best result in its history, with 19,379 tons. The positive trend of recent months and the flight submissions for 2024 suggest a further rebound towards the pre-coronavirus level.
