AENA anticipates 2025 as the year it will serve 300 million passengers

3 April, 2024

Aena has presented the update of its Strategic Plan for the period 2022-2026. The positive economic performance, better than estimated, and a faster than expected recovery in passenger traffic are two of the reasons that have led the airline to update the objectives of the Strategic Plan 2022-2026, which was presented in November 2022.

In 2023, Aena beat the passenger record of 2019, the last year before the COVID-19 pandemic. Specifically, last year, Aena's airports in Spain recorded 283 million passengers, which is 2.9% more than in 2019. Based on these figures, the airport operator expects to close 2024 with around 294 million passengers.

The good prospects for the 2024 summer season, with a programme around 7% higher than in 2023, support this optimism. Consequently, Aena brings forward to 2025 the goal of 300 million passengers in Spain, one year earlier than foreseen in the Strategic Plan presented in 2022. By 2026, when the Plan comes to an end, Aena expects to reach a figure of approximately 310 million passengers.
