Exploring Croatia: Direct Connections to 130 Cities Await This Summer Season

Written by  May 18, 2023

According to the information collected by the Croatian Tourist Board from Croatian airports, Croatia will be connected to over 483 unique airline operations during the summer flight schedule.

"Air transport is extremely important in connecting Croatia with the world, especially the southern regions with emitting markets. The significantly improved transport connectivity of Croatian destinations compared to last year suggests further recovery of air transport and is excellent news ahead of the main summer tourist season. The large number of airlines confirms Croatia's popularity on the global tourism map and further establishes Croatia as an aviation destination well connected to international airports," said Kristjan Staničić, the director of the Croatian Tourist Board. He added that if all planned routes are realized, it would represent a double-digit growth rate in the number of airline operations compared to the 2022 summer flight schedule.
