Whether it’s getting to Croatia or getting around Croatia, travellers have a much greater choice of flights this year and the entry of low-cost carriers into Croatia’s foreign and domestic market means flights are ever cheaper.
First the big news.
Sky Greece to launch Toronto-Zagreb route
For the first time since 2008, there will be a direct flight between North America and Croatia. Good news! This Greece-registered airline has just received necessary licenses and plans to fly the Toronto-Zagreb route every Monday from 22 June to 15 October using a Boeing 767-300ER. Reservations should open in a few days. More.
Seaplane Service Expands
European Coastal Airways put their fleet into service last year after years of delays and is now slowly expanding to cover more destinations. For now, you can fly from Split to Jelsa (on Hvar Island) in only 13 minutes and to Pula in Istria in only an hour. From Rijeka airport, it’ a short flight to Pula or to Rab. It’s an ideal way to see a lot of Croatia in a short time and there are more destinations on the way. More.
Montenegro Airlines Flies to Zagreb
This service will make it much easier for travellers to incorporate a Montenegrin jaunt into their Croatia travel itineraries. From Dubrovnik there are regular buses to Montenegro so rather than returning to Dubrovnik for a flight to Zagreb, now you can just fly on to Zagreb or even fly onward as Montenegro Airlines will feed into Croatia Airlines’ network. There will be three flights a week between Podgorica and Zagreb. More.
EasyJet to Split
Trade Air Covering the Coast
Since Jadrolinija has suspended its coastal car ferry service everyone has been asking me what the best way is to get up and down the Croatian coast (besides driving). I recommend you take a look at Trade Air for Friday flights that link Rijeka, Split and Dubrovnik. More.
