We’re still getting photos from airlines and airports celebrating their anna.aero EURO ANNIE wins. Croatia may have failed to qualify for the finals of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Baku, but it still managed to carry away a top European prize this month when Pula Airport on the Istrian peninsula took the anna.aero EURO ANNIE ‘Airport With the Most New Airlines’ by adding five more carriers to its August schedules this year – S7, Rossiya, Lufthansa, Jat Airways and Jet2.com.
Estonia, meanwhile, came a respectable 6th in Eurovision but, more significantly, took an anna.aero EURO ANNIE ‘Airport Growth Award’ for achieving 38.2% growth last year in the 1-2 million category. This was not just a one-off – Tallinn will definitely have to move on to the 2-3 million category next year having achieved over 20% growth in the first four months of 2012. “This is really great news for us. Thank you anna.aero on behalf of all our marketing team” says Helena Ilves, Tallinn’s marketing manager.
