Multinational travel and tourism company TUI Group, who have their headquarters in Hanover, Germany, are set to open an airline base on Croatia’s Dalmatian coast at Brač Airport next year.

“TUI will have a small base in Brač. This is a logical step because of the situation in Africa and Turkey, as well as Croatia’s growing tourism industry. TUI has an interest in such a move and already invests a lot in Croatia and sees great potential in our coast. They see Brač Airport as a partner in those plans,” said Brač Airport’s General Manage, Tonči Peović, as exyuaviation.com reports.

The TUI Group owns and operates TUIfly Belgium, Netherlands, and Deutschland, as well as Thomson Airways from the UK, TUIfly Nordic from Sweden and Crosair International from France.

TUIfly Belgium is to launch services to Brač this summer. Brač airport has recently undergone renovations, including the extension of its runway, allowing it to handle larger aircraft.

“This year we anticipate our passenger numbers to double to 30,000. This figure should double again next year. Brač Airport is undergoing a major expansion and few airports in the region can boast of such robust growth”, Mr Peović concluded.
