Eurowings has big plans for Croatia in 2018

Written by  Nov 02, 2017

Eurowings, a low cost subsidiary of Lufthansa has announced new flights to all Croatian airports next year.

By the end of this year, Eurowings plans to carry more than 900,000 on flights to and from Croatia, or 60 percent more than last year. However, by introducing new flights next year, the company expects this number to rise to more than 1 million passengers, said representatives of Eurowings at the Eurowings media conference that was held on the 31st of October.

‘’In the next four years Eurowings, as a part of the Lufthansa Group, has big plans for Croatia which is the country with the largest growth rate in our network. Next year we plan to increase our market share in Croatia, but also in Europe, where we are the fastest growing airline and the third in the ‘low cost’ segment’’, commented Markus Leopold, the Regional Manager at Eurowings.

On the day of the conference, Eurowings launched the new all year round flight between Zagreb and Dusseldorf, with additional flights between Rijeka and Cologne and Pula and Dusseldorf that were launched on the 2nd of November. Thus, Eurowings is one of the few airlines to fly all year round to and from Croatia.

‘’We want to extend the tourist season and airline season in Croatia; we see a great potential here. The fact that we are on a good path is confirmed with a large demand for flights, especially for this flight between Dusseldorf and Zagreb and back, which is fully occupied. We also expect cooperation with the Croatian Tourist Board (HTZ) in joint advertising because we are the only air carrier to operate flights to all Croatian airports, even all year round flights to some of them, thus a support from local partners is more than welcome’’, explained Ivan Oreč, the Network Development Manager and Airport Relations at Eurowings.

In addition, this year Eurowings has carried the largest number of passengers to Zagreb (170,000), then to Dubrovnik, Split, Pula, Zadar, Osijek and Rijeka.

‘’Last year the largest number of passengers were carried to Spain, Great Britain, Italy, Switzerland and Austria. Croatia is in the top ten countries and is a traditionally important market to which we pay full attention’’, concluded Oreč.
