Daniela Rogulj

On Tuesday, the low-cost carrier easyJet launched its new route between Amsterdam and Pula, reports HRTurizam on June 26, 2019.

The inaugural flight, which operated using the Airbus A320 aircraft, was scheduled to land at 19:40, but arrived 10 minutes earlier, at 19:30. The flight carried 110 passengers to Pula, while 94 passengers were on the flight departing back to Amsterdam. The new route will operate twice a week, on Tuesdays and Sundays, until September 1, 2019. 

“Compared to the traffic in 2018, up to Monday, we had a 16 percent increase in the number of passengers, which is justified by the repeat flight plan for all existing companies, and new lines on Laudamotion for Stuttgart, Volotea for Bordeaux, Jet2.com for Birmingham, easyJet for Amsterdam and Geneva as well as TUI UK for Doncaster,” said Svemir Radmilo, director of the Pula Airport.

In addition to the newly opened line for Amsterdam, easyJet flies to another ten destinations from Pula.

Pula’s airport dates back to 1911, when some pilots and engineers from the Austro-Hungarian army took to the air from a grass field. This is the present location of the airport.

Civilian flights began in 1924 with a seaplane service. Seaplanes reappeared briefly to Pula in 2015, but European Coastal Airlines stopped flights in 2016. The seaplane company is presently in pre-bankruptcy proceedings.

The current airport was turned over to civilian use back in 1967, and it proved very successful. 1987 saw Pula handle over 700,000 passengers, a number that would not be bettered until 2018.
