Will there finally be a direct connection between China and Croatia? With Chinese tourism and business interests in Croatia increasing, the rapid increase of Chinese visitors looks set to continue, and with it talk once more of direct flights, this time potentially directly into Zagreb with Hainan Airlines. As ExYuAviation notes:

“Hainan Airlines could introduce flights to Croatia in the near future, the Zagreb-based Chinese Southeast European Business Association (CSEBA) announced following talks with the government of Hainan province and the Croatian Embassy in China. “We discussed the possibility of Hainan Airlines introducing nonstop flights from China to Croatia, most probably to Zagreb. The launch of this service would boost the number of Chinese tourists to Croatia. There is certainly increased interest for Croatia from both the provincial and central governments after the China Road and Bridge Corporation was awarded a contract to build the first phase of Pelješac Bridge”, CSEBA said in a statement. “Hainan Airlines is very interested in introducing services to Croatia and the region in general”, it previously noted.”

Confirmed additional traffic for Zagreb comes from Croatia Airlines, which has announced that it will be strengthening four routes for 2018 from the capital – Tel Aviv, St Petersburg, a doubling of flights to the Macedonian capital, Skopje, and Zagreb to Rome via Dubrovnik. Full details and timetable from Avioradar.

French air traffic to the Dalmatian coast continues, and TUI Airlines Belgium will have three new routes to Dubrovnik from France this year, in addition to keeping their current flights to Split and Brac.
