Croatia is aiming on long-haul flights to South Korea, Taiwan and China. The Croatian Tourism Minister Gari Cappelli said that Croatia is currently having talks with a number of faraway markets – Far East and the Middle East in particular.
Minister Cappelli said that his ministry’s goal is to develop Croatia as a destination which is easily accessible to several airlines, especially before the peak summer season. He said that the Croatian government is directing a part of their fund for closer cooperation with carriers, which will give rise to more flights to the airports. Talks are on with a number of large European and global airlines as well as tour operators. Strong increase in visitor numbers is expected from non-traditional markets.
Summer charters are now available to Zagreb and Dubrovnik run by Korean Air and ANA (Japan). Connecting Zadar to China is on the ministry’s agenda. Talks are also on for introducing seasonal flights to the US.
