Croatia’s most visited destination could welcome more visitors out of the traditional summer season as it becomes more connected this winter…

A rotation of 14 direct flights to Dubrovnik have already been announced this winter. Dubrovnik will be connected with Istanbul and Frankfurt three times weekly, with Barcelona twice a week and Rome four times a week this winter. Negotiations with British Airways are in their final stages which will see two direct flights weekly between London and Dubrovnik during the winter.

“The lack of direct flights was considered six months ago the biggest problem effecting winter tourism in Dubrovnik. We’re still working on a return route to New York twice a week, which there is justification for considering the strong increase in arrivals and overnight stays of American tourists. There are negotiations also in place to establish a direct line to Brussels, also twice a week, “said Dubrovnik Mayor Andro Vlahušić.

Dubrovnik is working hard on trying to become a serious all year round destination. Last year ‘Project Winter’, a programme aimed at attracting tourists out of season, was launched. The programme will focus on implementing plans and initiatives together with the Ministry of Tourism over the next 5 years till 2020.
