Flight EZY6251 carrying more than 170 passengers took to the skies for the first time on Sunday. The airline will fly twice a week between Bristol and the Croatian city on Wednesdays and Sundays over summer, with more than 11,000 people expected to travel on the new route in its first summer alone. Flights start from just £24.99 per person (one-way, including taxes and based on two people on the same booking).
Situated on the Adriatic Sea Dubrovnik attracts visitors from across Europe thanks to its picturesque bays and beaches, rich artistic history and beautiful weather. The city was granted UNESCO World Heritage Site status in the late 70s and provides the perfect setting for travellers to wander around the medieval setting and explore.
Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Commercial Manager, said:
“easyJet is committed to providing our passengers in the South West with an unrivalled choice of Europe’s best destinations and we’re proud to be launching Dubrovnik from the airport.
“It is already proving a popular choice for our passengers, with many choosing Dubrovnik for their summer holidays this year. As well as being the perfect location for a relaxing trip, it also provides easy access to many other surrounding areas for those who want to explore further – from the village of Mlini to the local town of Cavtat and even Kotor, Montenegro, a two hour drive away which has just been listed in the top 10 cities in Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2016.”
Shaun Browne, Aviation Director Bristol Airport, commented:
“We are delighted with this new easyJet service to Dubrovnik which is one of Europe’s most exciting destinations and will no doubt appeal to travellers throughout the South West and Wales region. We look forward to working with easyJet on further new route opportunities in the coming months.”
Last week the airline also announced it will be starting a new route from Bristol Airport to Las Palmas in Gran Canaria later this summer, and in March easyJet’s new flights from the airport to Venice and Nantes took off for the first time.
