The British airline easyJet declared our country the destination of the year, which was further confirmed by the printing of the July issue of inflight magazine, which for the first time in history was dedicated to only one country – Croatia.It is a publication intended for the users of their services and which will contribute to the additional promotion of Croatian destinations because the magazine has a reach of more than 6 million passengers on a monthly basis. easyJet has chosen Croatia as a destination where there are increases in traffic and interest, which has made our country one of the key destinations of this airline, which transports more than a million passengers to Croatian destinations during the summer months. This year alone, they have 49 active lines that connect our destinations such as Dubrovnik, Split, Pula and Zadar with many key European cities such as London, Berlin, Milan, Paris, Basel, Bristol and others.”The choice of Croatia as the destination of the year by one of the key European airlines is a great success for us, but also a confirmation that we are making significant and strategically important changes in this important transport segment. The key goals we have defined include positioning Croatia as an attractive year-round tourist destination that is also very well connected, especially in the context of airlines that are extremely important for strengthening tourist traffic in the pre- and post-season periods. To this end, for the first time this year we have carried out significant cooperation with airlines and tour operators from abroad.”, Said the director of the Croatian Tourist Board Kristjan Staničić, adding that Croatian tourism can boast of more than 70 new regular lines introduced this year.EasyJet carries more than 82 million passengers a year, of which about 13 million are business travelers. Their fleet consists of almost 300 aircraft flying a total of 980 routes, or 156 airports in 33 countries.
