The ceremony also discussed the new seasonal route Split – Skopje, on which the first flight took place on Friday, May 12, 2023. Flights on this route are planned twice a week – on Tuesdays and Fridays, also until mid-October this year, and will with the Dash 8-Q400 aircraft.

“We are glad that in this year’s summer flight schedule we have also expanded our network of destinations from Split and that we will operate on routes to Oslo and Skopje. Thus, during this season, we will connect Split directly with 20 foreign destinations, and the Republic of Croatia with a total of 24, thus providing strong support for the development of Croatian tourism and economy and contributing to an even greater attractiveness of our homeland on the tourist map of the world,” said Marija Pavić, sales manager of Croatia Airlines.

“More than 50 airlines fly to Split Airport during the summer season, but from a strategic point of view, Croatia Airlines is our most important business partner because it offers the widest network of direct routes, the largest number of flights and ensures year-round connection of our region with the world. Last year’s network with 18 direct routes to European destinations is being further increased this season with routes to Oslo and Skopje. If we add to that 3 domestic routes and a series of charter flights to Sweden, Great Britain, Spain and Ireland, then we can estimate the importance of Croatia Airlines in achieving the business goals of Split Airport, and especially in the further development of air traffic and tourism in this region,” said Pero Bilas, assistant director of ZL Split.

“An excellent start to the pre-season is behind us, and the new seasonal airlines will contribute to an even better positioning of the Split-Dalmatia County on our broadcasting markets. For more southern regions like ours, increased air traffic and more intensive flights are of key importance, especially when we talk about the distant Scandinavian market and their guests, which, in economic terms, are among the strongest in the world. We are extremely excited about the arrival of our guests and the start of the first official tourist season without a pandemic, in which we hope for a complete recovery of the tourist market. We should certainly emphasize that the long-term successful cooperation with Croatia Airlines also contributes to the excellent tourism results of our county, which we hope will continue in the future,” said Maja Franetović from the Tourist Board of Split-Dalmatia County.

“This season we have two more new routes in cooperation with the national carrier Croatia Airlines, which contributes to the successful start of the pre-season. The new flights to Oslo and Skopje are an added value to our tourist product, because guests who come to the destination by direct flights are more rested and satisfied, and it is easier for them to decide to travel. We are pleased that one of the new trips is related to the Scandinavian market, which is among our 5 most important broadcasting markets, especially because tourists from Scandinavia are known as good consumers and choose to visit a certain destination more than once. We look at this year’s tourist season with optimism and hope for a large number of passengers on the new lines and the continuation of successful cooperation with Croatia Airlines in the future,” said Alijana Vukšić, director of the Split Tourist Board.
