Bilbao Airport surpasses pre-pandemic data in the first quarter of 2023

The number of passengers increased by 0.8% in February compared to the same month in 2019 (348,000). This has meant that domestic traffic has grown by 7.2% and international traffic has recovered by 89.3%.
Landings and take-offs show a positive tone at the beginning of 2023, with a total of 3,075 operations, a recovery of 88.1% compared to pre-pandemic records.
The first two months of the year have welcomed a total of 688,508 passengers, an increase of 1.3% compared to the same period in 2019. This growth is extraordinary news in terms of Bilbao-Bizkaia’s external connectivity.
