Turkish Airlines is looking for a third Croatian destination after flights to the capital Zagreb and to Dubrovnik have proved successful. Turkish Airlines is one of the rare airlines that operates flights to Dubrovnik out of the main summer season, with four operations a week through the winter last year. And they are now on the hunt for a further Croatian destination to connect with Istanbul. There are rumours that Split is the leading contender, and as the airport is the second busiest in the country this would seem to make business sense.
"Twenty years ago we launched two weekly flights to Zagreb, while today we maintain double daily services. In addition, two years ago we commenced four weekly year-round operations to Dubrovnik. This summer, services have been increased to eleven weekly. Our plan is to launch another route to Croatia so we can better connect the country to the world and bring even more tourists", commented the Country Manager for Croatia, Ugur Cantimur.
