Seasonal Jadrolinija Zadar-Ancona Ferry Line Returning to Function

As Morski writes, the Coastal and Liner Transport Agency has given Jadrolinija consent to maintain the international line between Zadar and Ancona during 2022’s season.

The timetable between the nearest part of the Croatian and Italian coasts across the Adriatic Sea will be made available to use for passengers from June the 23rd to September the 9th, with three different traffic dynamics of the “Marco Polo” ferry. Over these 80 days, the Jadrolinija Zadar-Ancona ferry line be transporting passengers back and forth from these two cities, according to local portal

In the period from June the 23rd to July the 17th, and then from September the 1st to the 9th, the Jadrolinija Zadar-Ancona line will operate once a week. The ferry will depart from Ancona (Italy) on Thursday at 22:00, and will arrive in Zadar (Croatia) on Friday at 07:00. On the same day, more precisely at 10:00, the ferry will return to Ancona from Zadar (17:00).

In the period from July the 18th to August the 18th, when the most traffic associated with the very height of the summer tourist season is expected, the Jadrolinija Zadar-Ancona line will operate twice a week. It will depart from Zadar for Ancona on Mondays at 22:00 (arriving in Ancona on Tuesday at 07:00) and on Fridays at 10:00 (arrival in Ancona at 17:00). Departures from Ancona to Zadar are scheduled for Monday at 10:00 (arriving in Zadar at 18:00), and Thursday at 22:00 (arriving in Zadar at 07:00).

The third version of the timetable refers to the period from the 19th to the 26th of August, when two lines per week are also planned. The ferry’s departure from Zadar will take place on Mondays and Fridays at 22:00 (arriving in Ancona on Tuesdays and Saturdays at 07:00), while the ferry will depart for Zadar from Ancona on Mondays and Fridays at 18:00 (arriving in Zadar on Mondays and Fridays at 10:00).

The hydrofoil line last sailed back in 2020, and was discontinued due to low passenger interest and the coronavirus pandemic causing said effect. Its re-establishment, at least during the two and a half months of this year’s main summer tourist season, is interpreted as a result of pressure from local politics and State Secretary in the Ministry of Maritime Affairs, Transport and Infrastructure, Josip Bilaver, on Jadrolinija’s overall management.
