“The largest European low-cost airline, Ryanair, has decided to operate flights to Dubrovnik this coming summer season,” commented the director of Dubrovnik Airport, Frano Luetic. The Irish airline had previously announced these new flights from Dublin to Dubrovnik, four times a week, throughout the summer months but it later turned out that no contract existed between Ryanair and Dubrovnik Airport.
When the news leaked that Ryanair had started selling tickets on their website without having a signed contract with Dubrovnik Airport a spokesperson for the airport commented that ““We are surprised with Ryanair’s announcement that next summer they will launch flights to Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik Airport has received no official information about their arrival, nor has any agreement regarding slots or services with them been signed.”
However, at a press conference Luetic confirmed the arrival of Ryanair for next summer. “The airline has announced four flights a week from Dublin and we hope that ticket sales is going well,” concluded Luetic.
