Volotea Airlines is opening lines from Lyon to Dubrovnik and Split, from Marseille to Rijeka and Bordeaux to Pula. Air France announced the opening of a new direct flight to Split from Paris, and Easy Jet the opening of a direct flight from Nantes to Dubrovnik. The director of the CNTB Representation in France, Danijela Mihalić Đurica, emphasizes that arrivals from the French emitting market are constantly increasing, as well as the interest of the French audience in discovering lesser-known Croatian regions. “Arrivals and overnight stays from the French emitting market have been constantly increasing in recent years, and the French are increasingly coming to regions where so far there have not been many guests such as Kvarner, Zagreb, Istria or Slavonia. All this is a consequence of the expansion of the production of existing tour operators, but also the opening of Croatia as a completely new destination with some new French travel organizers. According to the information we receive from regular meetings with tour operators, the forecasts for the 2019 season are good and good sales trends should continue this year as well. “, she pointed out Mihalić Đurica. In addition to numerous new charter flights in 2019, six new routes from the French market have been announced.
