According to the analysis of currently active, but also announced airlines, made by the Croatian National Tourist Board, in the summer season of 2021, more than 180 airlines will be announced to Croatia. The largest number of airlines are expected from the markets of Great Britain, Germany, France and Poland.
"Many airlines have introduced and announced flights to Croatia based on tourist demand and interest, which is very pronounced for our country in many markets. The position of Croatia as a safe and desirable destination also helps us a lot. Of course, the final results this year will mostly depend on the epidemiological situation in Croatia, so on this occasion I call on all citizens, partners, tourism workers and everyone else to behave responsibly and adhere to all prescribed epidemiological measures. Only in this way can we defend last year's position of the leading tourist destination in the Mediterranean," said the director of the Croatian Tourist Board Kristjan Staničić.
