The national airline Croatia Airlines presented its summer flight schedule at the Split Airport, which will connect Croatia and 21 European destinations this season. Split was chosen because it had the highest turnover in the country last year. New positive trends are expected this summer.
After the winter season, the summer flight schedule begins next weekend.
“For now, we do not feel the consequences of this security crisis in Europe, and on the other hand we have the impression that as the pandemic subsides, interest has increased,” said the assistant director of Split Airport Pero Bilas.
Due to the war in Ukraine, the airport will lose about 60 thousand planned passengers and seven carriers from Russia and Ukraine. This is less than two percent of traffic. Last year ended with more than a million and a half passengers and a profit of 23 million kuna was achieved.
“Split Airport plans to increase traffic by 30 percent compared to last year, so that it would have about two million passengers,” said Assistant Director for Commercial Affairs Ante Teklić.
Croatia Airlines also expects the most from Split Airport, so they presented their ambitious flight schedule in Split, which will be connected to a total of 18 European destinations during the summer. They will also connect Zagreb with 15 and Dubrovnik with six. Croatia's planes will fly on a total of 41 international routes.
“During the summer season, we plan to operate 16,000 flights and make 1.7 million seats available to strengthen tourism and respond to market demand,” said Croatia Airlines Commercial Director Slaven Žabo.
The sale of tickets at promotional prices has already started and prices will be adjusted to energy prices, and the flight schedule can be corrected in accordance with the epidemiological situation or the security situation in Europe.
