The passengers carried on scheduled flights decreased by 1.3%, with reduction of domestic flights (-5.3%) and increase of international ones (+1.9%). The reduction in the use of charter flights (-1.1%) is due to international traffic (-1.7%), while the domestic market increased by 10.8%.

Despite the decrease recorded, the number of passengers carried in 2012 is the second best result in the time series 2003-2012.
