This is a publication intended for users of their services and will contribute to the further promotion of Croatian destinations, since the magazine has a monthly base of more than 6 million passengers.
"Choosing Croatia as a destination of the year by one of the key European air carriers for us is a great success, but also a confirmation that we are making important and strategically important changes in this important transport segment. The key goals we have defined include positioning Croatia as an attractive all-year tourist destination, which is also very well connected with infrastructure, especially in the context of air transport that are extremely important for boosting tourist traffic in the pre and post periods. With this aim, this year, for the first time, this year we carried out more significant cooperation with air carriers and travel organizers from abroad, "said the Director of the Croatian Tourist Board Kristjan Staničić, adding that Croatian tourism can boast more than 70 new regular lines introduced this year.
