As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, promising announcements for Croatian tourism are coming from the World Travel Market (WTM), which started a couple of days ago in London. According to the director of the Croatian National Tourist Board (HTZ), Kristjan Stanicic, who met with representatives of some of the most important partners such as easyJet, TUI, SAGA, Jet2.com & Jet2Holidays during the first day of the fair, Croatia looks as if it will be a hit destination next year as well.

“We’ve achieved some exceptionally good results this year, and there’s also been great announcements for next year from the representatives of Jet2.com, our most important partners on the British market, which, along with TUI, brings us the largest number of British tourists each year.

These partners have announced an increase in demand for Croatia and a larger number of airlines, but we also have a great responsibility ahead of us because the basic precondition for a successful tourist season will be a stable epidemiological situation,” said Stanicic.

EasyJet is also satisfied with the achieved results and notes that in 2021 they have almost completely returned to the trends from the pre-pandemic record year of 2019.

“Speaking of Croatia, next year we plan to increase capacities and introduce some new flights, and for the first time we’re considering the introduction of flights to the airports of Rijeka and Osijek,” revealed Richard Owens, the development manager at easyJet.

EasyJet Rijeka and certainly Osijek flights would bring even higher numbers of visitors to Croatia and finally shine the spotlight on the commonly overlooked Eastern Croatian region, which has a lot to boast about but is still very much stuck living in its coastal cousins’ shadows.
