Flights to Croatia 2017: Malmo and Gothenburg the Latest Connections to Pula

Total Croatia News

More options for Scandinavian tourists to Istria next summer, reports Avioradar on October 4, 2016. 

The impressive diversifation of Pula Airport continues. Over three years after its passenger traffic was severely disrupted with Croatia’s EU accession to the EU (until then, some 40% of its customers were Russian tourists, who suddenly needed visas to enter the country when Croatia became the 28th member state), Pula is once more enjoying an excellent season, with more than 400,000 passengers handled so far this year. 

Moving away from its reliance on Russian flights, the airport management has built up a wider network of routes all over Europe in the last couple of years, attracting new airlines such as easyJet and Aer Lingus along the way. 

The ever-important Scandinavian market will receive an additional boost from May 18, 2017, with a weekly flight to Pula being offered by Danish carrier Primera Air, from Gotherburg and Malmo. The Thursday flight will continue until September 28, and will add to Primera’s presence at Pula, which is already connected by a weekly seasonal flight from Stockholm. 

As Pula benefits from the extra flight, so Dubrovnik loses, as the Malmo/Gothenburg connection to the Pearl of the Adriatic will not be offered next year. Primera’s Stockholm to Dubrovnik route, however, will fly into early October.
