Finally! Hvar will have its own helicopter service based on the island.
A few weeks ago, I was invited to meet a very nice Swiss couple over a mojito at Hula Hula. The reason for the meeting was to discuss a rather nice plan they had.
To start a helicopter transfer and panorama service for Dalmatia (and beyond) based on Hvar.
They even had their own helicopter…
After lots of battles with Croatian bureaucracy, discussions with the ministry and the airfield in Stari Grad, all now seems to be ready, and the island will welcome its first helicopter transfer service based on Hvar.
