Since these amazing low prices will be snapped up quickly, customers should log onto www.ryanair.com and avoid missing out.”
Josip Klišmanić, General Manager, Zadar airport, said: “Ryanair’s comeback to Zadar with as many as 3 of its based aircrafts is a great recognition to Zadar, as an airport but also as a destination. The growth of routes to Zadar from all over Europe during last years shows that Zadar and Croatia have much to offer to our visitors. Ryanair makes Zadar and Croatia much accessible to Europe but let’s not forget, it also makes Europe much closer to Zadar and Croatia. Schedule for season 2020 justifies our efforts to expand capacities of Zadar Airport by which we will be able to increase the level of service to our passengers and create preconditions for further growth. I have no doubt that Ryanair will have very important role in that.”
