In the period from 25th Match to 27th October in 2018, more than 70 new regular flight connections have been introduced. The mentioned growth represents an increase in the number of turnarounds from 29,843 turnarounds in 2017 to more than 34,400 turnarounds in 2018.
“The key goals which we have defined are the positioning of Croatia as an attractive year-round tourist destination which at the same time is very well connected transport-wise, particularly in the context of flight connections which are a key sector in the extension of tourist traffic in the pre- and post-season periods. It is precisely with this goal that this year for the first time we have implemented a more significant collaboration with airline companies and travel organisers from abroad”, said the Director of the Croatian National Tourism Board Kristjan Staničić.
