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.
Jadrolinija has had very good business results in the last three years and has invested all its profit in upgrading its fleet as the company’s strategic goal, CEO David Sopta said at a ceremony in Zadar’s port of Gazenica.
Some 1.14 million passengers and 381,550 vehicles used this ferry line last year.
Jadrolinija’s fleet includes 54 vessels now: 37 ferries for local lines, 10 fast passenger ships plus three large ferries used for international routes.
