Croatia Airlines will connect Munich with Rijeka with direct flights on an all-year round basis. The Tourism Council was held this week at the Ministry of Tourism and one of the decisions brought forward was more co-operation between Croatia Airlines and the Kvarner Tourist Board.
Until now Croatia Airlines has connected Munich and Rijeka twice a week, on Thursdays and Sundays, from the 28th of October to the 30th of March. And with the new funds promised from the Ministry of Tourism this link will continue all year round.
Rijeka Airport had an incredible year in 2018, a year that records tumbled. A total turnover of 183,606 passengers saw a huge 30 percent increase on 2017 and in fact was the highest percentage increase in traffic from all airports in Croatia. The airport of Rijeka has already confirmed four new summer air carriers in 2019, Lufthansa, Volote and TUI, which will fly to 3 new destinations, and Air Serbia which will connect Belgrade with Rijeka.
