Local Croatian airline company Trade Air, from Velika Gorica (Zagreb County) have put their name in the hat to provide affordable flights from Croatia’s capital Zagreb to the southern Dalmatian tourist hub of Dubrovnik.
Trade Air, which has a float of fokker 100 planes, is interested in connecting the Croatian metropolis and have met with Dubrovnik Mayor Andro Vlahusic.
“Air transport is the only relevant to Dubrovnik. The simplest and most accessible transportation to Zagreb and vice versa is air travel. All other forms of transportation are too slow and too expensive, and the city’s management is willing to encourage all those who can improve that,” said Vlahusic after the Air Trade delegation presented their proposal, and a willingness to subsidise flights in order to reduce the cost for the citizens of Dubrovnik ahead of the liberalization of air transport when Croatia enters the EU.
