Dublin-based Ryanair , one of the most notable low-cost air companies in Europe, has big plans for Croatian city of Zadar in 2016. According to official announcement, the firm will establish 13 new flight lines to this Dalmatian destination next year, connecting it with European cities such as Berlin and London. Ryanair intends to keep its policy of low ticket pricing, allowing its passengers to reach Croatian shores for less than 20 Euros per flight.
Such huge business leap in Ryanair’s service doesn’t come as a surprise to local tourist workers, though. Zadar is perceived as one of the most visited destinations in Croatia, thanks to its cultural sites, gorgeous natural scenery and developed hospitality infrastructure. Home of unique Church of St.Donatus and renowned artistic installation called Sea Organ, the city annually attracts more than one million foreign visitors.
Thanks to new transport lines, Ryanair expects to bring 315.000 more people to streets of Zadar in 2016. The final number could be even higher, as company’s novel program of service improvement ‘Always Getting Better’ will surely lead to positive results. Airliner intends to invest in its mobile applications and online sources, as well as in redesign of crew uniforms and passenger cabinet interior. New airfare bases will also be opened, and changes will provide 230 new job positions in Zadar alone.
In addition to aforementioned Berlin and London, Ryanair will connect Zadar with Bruxelles, Dublin, Frankfurt, Göteborg, Baden-Baden, Manchester, Marseille, Oslo, Paris, Stockholm and Weeze. If you live in one of these cities, or in immediate vicinity, consider visiting Zadar next summer. With new lines opened by Ryanair, you’ll have your swim on Croatian coast in a matter of hours.
