Croatia to be Connected with 517 Airline Routes this Summer

Written by  Apr 10, 2024

During the upcoming summer flying season, Croatia will be connected with 517 unique routes in domestic and international traffic, as initial data collected by the Croatian Tourist Board from Croatian airports indicate. Accordingly, compared to last year's summer flight schedule, a double-digit increase in the number of passenger aircraft operations is expected.

"The significant increase in the number of unique airline routes is the best indicator that Croatia continues to firmly hold its position as a safe and attractive tourist destination. Numerous airlines have recognized the increased demand for Croatian destinations, which is why they have expanded their programs, and we are particularly pleased with the increasing number of connections with distant markets that are increasingly contributing to the overall results of Croatian tourism," said Kristjan Staničić, Director of the Croatian Tourist Board, adding that air transport is extremely important in connecting Croatia with the world, especially the southernmost part of Croatia with the most important source markets.

Overall, almost all airports expect an increase in traffic, with the largest number of passenger aircraft operations planned for Zagreb Airport, Split Airport, and Dubrovnik Airport. In terms of source markets, the largest number of passenger aircraft operations is planned for Germany, the UK, Italy, France, and Poland.

During the summer flying season, direct connections between Croatia and 41 foreign countries are expected, mostly from Europe, while connections with destinations on other continents are planned, for example, for Canada, Qatar, the USA, and the UAE.

A special feature is the return of direct air links between Croatia and South Korea on the Zagreb-Seoul route from mid-May to the end of October, operated by the Korean carrier T'way Air. In addition, a new route between Croatia and Saudi Arabia has been announced, which, according to plans of Dubrovnik Airport, should be operated by Flynas, flying between Riyadh and Dubrovnik from mid-June to the end of August.

Furthermore, Croatia will be directly connected with 133 foreign cities, three cities more than during last year's summer flight schedule. Individual airports with the most planned operations to Croatia are Frankfurt/Main - Frankfurt Airport, Vienna - Vienna International, Munich - Franz Josef Strauss, and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
