World War II Airfield To Become Airport On Island Of Vis

An abandoned airfield on the Croatian island of Vis, which was used as an Allied military airfield and an airfield for the Yugoslav partisan air force in 1944, is set to be turned into an airport.

Members from the Croatian Engineers and Technicians Association, Vis Aircraft Club “Cumulus”, the Mayor of Komiza on the island of Vis Tonko Ivcevic, and interested citizens have held a workshop on the theme “Revitalising Vis Airport,” writes Slobodna Dalmacija.

Roman Cvek, a member of “Cumulus”, says that opening the airport on the site of the World War II airfield would bring more tourists to the island, provide better connections and be a great promotion for the Dalmatian island to the world.

The group says that the project is also a candidate to get EU funding to help complete it.

“It is hard to say when there will be an airport on Vis, but now we are closer and I believe that it could happen within a year,” said Cvek.
