Air Berlin to increase Croatia bound routes

Air Berlin to increase Croatia bound routes

Air Berlin, Germany’s second largest airline after Lufthansa, and Europe’s eighth largest in terms of passengers carried, will this year increase its routes to Croatia, Poslovni dnevnik reports…

Recently at one of the world’s leading travel trade shows, ITB Berlin, it was evident that bookings were dramatically down from the German market to destinations such as Turkey, Tunis and Egypt, due to the political situation in those countries. One country expected to realise tourism growth of 5% this year is Croatia, forcing the leading players to re-think strategies moving forward.

One of those players is Air Berlin, and the airlines management met with Croatian National Tourist Board Director Ratomir Ivičić at ITB Berlin to discuss increasing routes into Croatia.

In 2015 Air Berlin had 6,000 seats going to Croatia, but in 2016 they will increase that to 92,000 seats by introducing 4 new routes to Dubrovnik and Split from May to October. Air Berlin will also introduce 2 new routes to Zadar, Rijeka and Pula from June to September. Most flights to the Croatian cities will be from Germany, whilst a few will depart from Vienna.

Air Berlin is a member of the Oneworld alliance and is headquartered in Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf, a borough of Berlin.
