Aegean Airlines has announced its return to Croatian airports next spring!

Since the beginning of flights between Greece and Croatia, this airline has recorded a constant increase in the number of passengers, and according to its announcements for the spring - their predictions look pretty positive. Before the outbreak of the global pandemic, they planned to operate to Zagreb, Split, and Dubrovnik, but all flights were canceled in April.

Greek national airline launched the Split route (60 kilometers from Makarska) in 2016. and has been systematically increasing its capacity ever since. For example, in the summer of 2018, this line had four flights a week, while in the summer of 2019, a fifth flight was added.

What exactly does this mean for the Makarska Riviera and Croatian tourism?

We do not see Greeks often on the Makarska Riviera, but there are a large number of travelers who want to visit more countries in a shorter time. Of course, here it comes to passengers of a higher budget, but it should not be ignored that it is often more economical to travel by air than by land. Young Scandinavians, Americans, and Australians use fast transit between European airports. Even backpackers, who at first glance look like lower-budget passengers, use the various benefits of airlines to visit as many destinations as possible in the short term.
