The most popular budget airline in the world, Ryanair, will fly more frequently to Croatia this year. The Irish airline has announced that they will step up their operations between Stansted Airport and Osijek in eastern Croatia. Until now the airline had only operated summer flights but this service will be upgraded to a year round service, meaning that this region of Croatia will have its first winter connection to London.
Not only is Osijek the first city in eastern Croatian to have winter connections to London but it also become the first airport in Croatia to be served by Ryanair on a year round basis. According to the specialised website EX-YU Aviation the budget airline is also considering introducing flights from Dublin to Osijek.
Osijek Airport handled around 30,000 passengers in 2015, which was an increase of 7 percent when compared with 2014.
