The Korean connection!
As Ex Yu Aviation writes on the 29th of November, 2017, the popular Korean low-cost airline, which began running long-haul operations just two years ago, is planning to launch a connection to Zagreb as part of its European expansion.
Jin Air’s CEO, Jungo-ho Choi, stated that connections to the Croatian capital as well as to Budapest, Hungary, will begin in 2019, with flights to Bucharest, Romania and Belgrade, Serbia, being introduced the following year.
Croatia has always been very popular among Korean tourists, with more and more Korean nationals flocking to the country with each passing year.
As Ex YU Avation reports, 377, 779 Koreans visited Croatia last year alone and the popular Korean travel agency Hana Tour has stated that the Republic of Croatia is ”emerging as one of the most promising travel destinations for South Koreans who visit Europe”.
With well-known Croatian coastal destinations like Dubrovnik already wildly popular among Koreans, who can be seen in the Pearl of the Adriatic at all times of year appreciating the architecture, history and cultural heritage, it seems that the Croatian capital will also host large numbers of Korean tourists eager to get to know continental Croatia away from the shoreline, thanks to Jin Air’s latest and very welcome European initiative.
