Respected French Tour Operator Coming to Croatia, First Flights in April

The French are coming!

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 11th of January, 2018, the main obstacle to even more French arrivals in the past few years has been the lack of flights, but soon, this disadvantage will be eliminated.

Although the French already very high on the total arrivals scale, especially in Rijeka, they are set to reach even higher numbers in Kvarner as of April this year.

One of the most well-known French tour operators in spa, wellness and health programs, Thalasso N°1, has announced its arrival in Croatia this year. The first charter for Krk was announced on the 13th of April, 2018, and flights should continue until October, Novi List writes.

Thalasso N°1 is well known in the Canary Islands, Italy, Greece, Tunisia, Morocco, and more destinations. From this year on, the company will also be present in the Kvarner region, beginnng with Lošinj with the facilities of the Jadranka Group. The news is more than welcoming owing to the fact that Thalasso N°1 is one of the few high-quality French tour operators who, amazingly, still has no developed production in Croatia, and the owners are also the owners of the Ovayages brand, and after Kvarner, they’re announcing further spread to other Croatian regions in the coming years.

According to Novi List, the director of HTZ in France, Danijela Mihalic Đurica, aside from Ovoyages and Thalasso N°1 charter flights which will bring numerous guests from France as of the middle of April to October, new regular flights from France have also been announced.

In addition to the introduction of new flights to both Split and Dubrovnik, which are traditionally the most popular destinations for French guests visiting Croatia, a new regular airline from Nantes to Pula will begin in May this year, which will surely mark a further increase in French guests’ arrivals in Istria, Kvarner, the north and in continental Croatia.

With the arrival of Ovoyages and Thalasso N°1 in the Kvarner region, new possibilities for the arrival of a powerful French market are emerging, which has been steadily increasing in recent years.

In 2017, more than 540,000 French tourist arrivals were realised, representing a rise of 9 percent, with a record 2.1 million overnights recorded, an increase of 5 percent compared to 2016.
