800,000 passengers served at the airport in Rzeszów
Today (October 5th), the 800,000th passenger was checked in at Rzeszów-Jasionka Airport this year. It turned out to be Mr Jacek Sosin from Łańcut who was flying to Gdańsk via Warsaw with his grandchildren on board LOT Polish Airlines. Special passengers received some attractive souvenirs from the airport management. There was also an occasional cake.
2023 is a record-breaking year in the history of Rzeszów-Jasionka Airport. Every month the number of served passengers was higher than in an analogical period in 2019, which, until now, had been the best year in the history of the airport. Back then, 772,000 passengers had been served during the 12-month period. This number has already been exceeded, which portends a very satisfying result at the end of this year.
The CEO of Rzeszów-Jasionka Airport Adam Hamryszczak said: - We are really happy with the fact that at the beginning of October we exceeded the level of 800,000 served passengers. It definitely motivates us to do more pro-development actions. I want to thank the passengers for their trust and choosing Rzeszów-Jasionka Airport as well as the airport staff members for their work commitment.
The Secretary of State at the Ministry of Development Funds and Regional Policy Małgorzata Jarosińska-Jedynak stated: - Congratulations to the management on another great result. Thanks to the development of the airport we create many opportunities to use the tourism potential of Bieszczady and Beskid Niski. The development of the airport is a chance for the development of the entire region.
The Marshal of the Podkarpackie Voivodeship Władysław Ortyl summarized: - The airport becomes more and more attractive thanks to European, government and local funds. We hope that more and more passengers will land in Jasionka and visit the beautiful places of the Podkarpacie region. I think that the management of the airport has not said the last word yet and we will close the year with a round number.
