Airlines continues to make preparations for the 2018 season in Croatia. A roundup of the latest news and announcement on November 18, 2017.
A little more detail on the story of a direct connection between Dubrovnik and Dubai with FlyDubai that we brought you last week. Avioradar is reporting that talks are being finalised between the airline and Dubrovnik Airport, with four slots a week reserved for direct flights to the Pearl of the Adriatic. The dates of the seasonal service are shortly to be announced, with tickets going on sale in a matter of weeks. Click here for the full story (in Croatian).
Good news further up north in Pula, where it seems the Russians are slowly coming back. Prior to Croatia’s EU entry in 2013, Russian arrivals made up some 40% of Pula Airport’s traffic. S7 Airlines will have a weekly flight to Istria direct from St Petersburg, starting on May 27 and up to October 14. This is in addition to six flights a week from Moscow from April 28. Dubrovnik will also have an S7 service from Moscow twice a week, but there will be no S7 route from Moscow to Split next year. Click here for all the flight details.
And in the latest piece of great news for the island of Brac, travel agency Gruber will operate charter flights direct to the island from no less than four destinations in Austria. Flights from Vienna, Linz and Graz will start on May 19, with Innsbruck added one week later. The service will continue until early October.
