A big step forward for Dubrovnik Airport (Cilipi) in efficiency and simplicity.
As tportal.hr reported on the 28th of March 2017, Dubrovnik’s almost eternally busy airport plans on getting to grips with its heavy human traffic in an inventive way.
At the end of next month, Dubrovnik Airport will introduce a shuttle line between the airport, the city centre and hotels in the area of the peninsula of Peljesac and the island of Korcula. At an impressive 190 kilometres in length, it will be the longest so called ”shuttle line” in Croatia and one of the longest in Europe. This summer, visitors arriving in the area via Dubrovnik Airport will be transported to and from their respective destinations by the Dubrovnik based tourist company Korkyra Info.
Beginning on the 30th of April 2017 and ending on the 1st of October, passengers coming through the busy airport will have access to ”shuttle” transportation in the form of three buses, three mini buses and eight vans. During the week (Monday to Friday), transport to and from both the island of Korcula and the Peljesac peninsula will be available. Passengers will be transported to Brna, Vela Luka, Lumbarda and Korcula (town) on the island of Korcula, and to Orebic, Trapnj, Prapratno, Orasac and Slano on the mainland, destinations which are otherwise both notoriously difficult and quite expensive to arrive to.
Korkyra Info stated that many tourists give up on coming to our islands or the Peljesac peninsula when they see the price of the taxis and that it takes several hours to arrive, sometimes the cost involved is more expensive than airline tickets. From the end of April, that becomes the past.”
