Now according to a report on portal Total Hvar, European Coastal Airlines will commence a daily service from Split (Resnik) to the northern island of Rab on 1 October.

“Rab will be a key hub for the airline, which will soon be hooked up to Zagreb airport (a transfer of just 37 minutes) and Pula,” writes Total Hvar.

ECA’s seaplanes currently fly between Resnik and Jelsa four times a day, leaving Split at 9:00, 11:26, 14:52 and 17:18, and returning from Jelsa at 10:13, 12:39, 16:05 and 18:31. The seaplanes can carry up to 19 passengers.
