The largest number of airlines is expected in the markets of Great Britain, Germany, France and Poland.
“Many airlines have launched and advertised flights to Croatia depending on the demand and interest of tourists, which is very pronounced for our country in many markets. Croatia’s position as a safe destination and attractive also helps us a lot. Of course, the final results this year will mainly depend on the epidemiological situation in Croatia, that is why on this occasion I call on all citizens, partners, tourism workers and everyone to to behave responsibly and to adhere to all prescribed epidemiological measures. Only in this way will we be able to defend last year’s position as the leading tourist destination in the Mediterranean “, said the director of the Croatian Tourist Office Kristjan Staničić.
