Ryanair Opens Zadar Base On Monday – Half A Million Passengers Expected This Year

Irish low-cost airline Ryanair officially opened its base in the Dalmatian town of Zadar yesterday. Ryanair’s first base in Croatia, and for this part of Europe, will see 16 routes operate, of which six will be brand new routes.

“This year we will bring back the Dublin route, which was not in operation the past two years. New lines include flights towards the Midlands, Gothenburg, Haugesund, Liverpool and Paris,” said Zadar airport director Katica Pupic Bakrac, adding that the airport will also service Ryanair flights from London, Bruxelles, Marseille, Karlsruhe, Baden, Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, Bilund, Oslo and Stockholm.

“Last year we had 375,000 passengers pass through the airport, this year we are expecting over half a million passengers,” added Pupic Bakrac.

Besides Zadar, Ryanair also fly to Pula and Rijeka.
