First Charter Flight Between China and Croatia Set to Take Off

CroatiaThe first charter flight from China to Croatia is expected to take off in February 2015…

From next February, or March at the latest, a charter flight from the Southwest Chinese city of Chongquing will fly to Zadar on the Dalmatian coast three times per month, reports daily Slobodna Dalmacija. The flight from the city which boasts a population in excess of 30 million people, will land in Zadar as part of its 10-day charter route which will operate ‘pre’ and ‘post’ Croatia’s peak summer tourist season.

Confirmation of the first charter flight between China and Croatia comes on the back of a visit in October to Zadar from a Chinese business delegation. Last week the Croatian Ministry of Tourism met with officials involved and the deal was signed. Dubrovnik was talked about initially as the base where the charter would fly into, but it was decided that Zadar’s airport would be the base.
