Just under one month ago history was created when the first commercial seaplane flight landed in Jelsa on the island of Hvar, after taking off from the city of Split just 13-minutes earlier…
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. ECA also plan to connect all the major Croatian islands with the mainland, including Zadar, Zagreb, Dubrovnik and Italian cities such as Brindisi, Bari, Foggia, Ancona, Rimini, Ravenna, Bologna, Padova, Trst and Venice in the future.
