ZAGREB, July 3 (Hina) – The state-owned shipping company Jadrolinija on Friday put in operation a new ferry between Zadar and the nearby island of Ugljan, a project worth €3 million.

The ferry, made in Greece in 2009, can carry 650 passengers and 114 vehicles. It is the first of three such vessels that Jadrolinija plans to put in operation this year.
